TV star Gino D'Acampo is poised to host a new series of 'Family Fortunes' in 2021
Gino D'Acampo is set to host a new series of 'Family Fortunes'.
The 44-year-old TV star hosted new episodes of the iconic game show earlier this year, and he can't wait to return to shoot another series.
He said: "As soon as we’d finished the last season of 'Family Fortunes', I wanted to get straight back into the studio and film a load more episodes.
"Thankfully, the show went down very well with the viewers and I’m so happy to be back as I had the best time. The contestants really do make the show as brilliant as it is, and I know we’re going to be hearing a lot more weird and wonderful answers to the questions I’ll be asking."
The game show – which is based around the US show 'Family Feud' – originally ran between 1980 and 2002.
Katie Rawcliffe, ITV's head of entertainment commissioning, is now looking forward to another series with Gino at the helm.
She said: "We’re delighted to recommission 'Family Fortunes' after such a popular kick off series with Gino D’Acampo.
"It’s proving to be perfect viewing for families up and down the country and I’ve no doubt that the new series will be just as enjoyable to watch."
The new episodes are set to air in 2021, and the entertainment label Thames is hoping to bring more joy to Brits in the coming months.
Amelia Brown, the managing director of Thames, explained: "It brings a lot of joy to all of those who work on 'Family Fortunes' to know that the show has been so successful in such a period of uncertainty.
"It seems that viewers want to escape with the family and be entertained for an hour every Sunday night and we couldn’t be more pleased that the show is returning for even more episodes."
