The 2015 series originally aired in a 4pm teatime slot, which pushed back Countdown to a 2.10 slot and Deal or No Deal to 3pm opposite Tipping Point. After the first two weeks, it was moved to an 11.30 morning slot versus This Morning. The 2016 series had its running time cut in half to 30 minutes and placed in a 5.30 slot that is usually filled by Come Dine with Me.
