Gordon Ramsay is said to be in talks about hosting a new primetime gameshow for ITV, Bank Balance.

Gordon Ramsay is reportedly in line to host a new ITV gameshow that has nothing to do with cookery or food.

Bank Balance is a new format created by the hot-tempered chef's own production company Studio Ramsay and is thought to have been snapped up by ITV.

Gameshows are enjoying a renaissance in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic as they are relatively cheap to produce, lend themselves to social distancing and have quick turnaround times from filming to transmission.

"This is a big, glitzy, primetime project which isn't his normal type of show, but that's just the point," a source told The Sun.

"Viewers would be curious to see how fiery Gordon performs as a gameshow host and tune in to see if he gets frustrated with the contestants in the same way he did with competitors on Hell's Kitchen.

"The creators hope this will be a concept similar to Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? which can be sold around the globe."

Ramsay is also said to be in talks about hosting a revived version of Hell's Kitchen for ITV.
