Holding Out for a Hero



Gethin Jones


12 Yard for ITV1, 11 September to 23 October 2011 (7 episodes in 1 series)


In this general knowledge quiz, contestants face five questions, with three possible answers. After choosing their preferred answer, the player picks a "gift card" containing between £1000 and £20,000. Once in each round, the player can use additional tools to double or treble the amount at stake, or pass on the question entirely. After three players have competed, the highest score wins.

But there's a twist: the contestants on Holding Out for a Hero are playing for good causes and charities in their local area, and each is introduced with a brief film showing the work they'll help to fund. Everyone's getting £3000 for taking part, and the winners can easily take £50,000.
