Whisper is thrilled to confirm that ITV has re-commissioned daytime quiz show format Riddiculous for a second series. The show will once again be hosted by Ranvir Singh, with Henry Lewis as Riddlemaster.
The show is produced by East Media, part of The Whisper Group, with series one debuting in the UK in late 2022. The second series will comprise 25 x 60’ episodes, which will return to ITV and ITVX on weekday afternoons in early 2024.
The show sees three teams of two go head-to-head in a series of quick-fire general knowledge questions in order to unlock a riddle. The more questions and riddles they get correct, the more money they can bank.
After three rounds, one pair will make it through to face the iconic endgame: Henry’s Riddle Run. Here, against the clock, they must solve a series of unique fast-pace riddles. They then have to decide whether to gamble on a ‘double or nothing’ final riddle. It’s rapid, it’s ruthless and it’s totally Riddiculous!
Casting is now open for fun, outgoing and riddle-loving teams of two who could win an exciting cash prize. To apply now visit: tinyurl.com/riddiculouss2

Nathan Eastwood, MD of East Media said: “The country welcomed Ranvir and Henry into their homes and the strong performance of series one indicates an appetite for fresh new quiz content in the daytime schedule. We’re thrilled to be back for a second series and hope we can build our audience to make the show a daytime favourite for years to come.”
