What time is Small Fortune on ITV?

Small Fortune begins TONIGHT (Saturday, February 2 2019) at 7pm and lasts for one hour.

It airs just before The Voice UK, going up against The Greatest Dancer and Pointless Celebrities.

The new game show fronted by telly fave Dermot O’Leary is made up of six episodes.

If you miss an episode, it will be available on the ITV Hub.

How does the show work?

Teams of three friends or family members compete in the show, which has been dubbed “the world’s smallest physical gameshow”.

Contestants must work their way around a perfectly miniaturised world, and the smallest mistake could ruin their chances of winning.

Those that try their luck on the show are in with a chance of winning a £150,000 prize.

Dermot, 45, said: “I am delighted to be hosting this show. It’s a funny, quirky and clever show, that grabbed me from the off, I hope the viewers enjoy watching it as much as we will making it.”

ITV’s Commissioning Editor for Entertainment Joe Mace said: “If it’s true that fortune favours the brave, then Small Fortune favours the bravest. Great things come in small packages, and we hope the audience will agree. We are absolutely delighted that Dermot is hosting this exciting new series.”
