Phillip Schofield is to host new game show 'You're Back In The Room'.
The 'This Morning' presenter has signed on to front the brand new contest with a unique twist, that will see teams of five strangers take on apparently simple challenges in a bid to win cash prizes, while hypnotised.
The contestants - who are each willingly open to hypnotic suggestion - will be hypnotised by international mentalist Keith Barry and tasks which appear to be straight forward will become much harder as their hypnotic triggers cause them to inadvertently sabotage their own chances of winning.
Phillip said of his new project: "It's incredibly exciting to be launching a completely fresh, brand new format. This series is totally original and unlike anything I've ever hosted before.
"From making the pilot, the contestants are undoubtedly the stars of the show; their reactions are bizarre, hilarious, completely unpredictable and always thoroughly entertaining."
'You're Back In The Room' has been produced by Tuesday's Child for ITV and was commissioned by the channel's director of entertainment and Comedy, Elaine Bedell, and Commissioning Editor of Comedy Entertainment, Claire Zolkwer.
Claire said: "We are thrilled to have Phillip on board for this unique and exciting new show. It's entertainment the whole family can enjoy and I'm looking forward to seeing the contestants in action."
