New game show Babushka will not replace The Chase, insists host Rylan Clark-Neal
Bradley Walsh’s game show is just going on a break.
TV host Rylan Clark-Neal has denied his new game show is replacing The Chase on the TV schedule, saying it is filling the slot during a planned break.
The star of This Morning will front Babushka, a game show that uses traditional Russian dolls that contain smaller dolls, when The Chase goes on an annual break next month.
He took to Twitter to calm fans’ fears that it was a permanent change to the schedules, writing:
The Chase presenter Bradley Walsh retweeted his messages.
Babushka has been commissioned for 20 episodes and the contestants will need knowledge, skill and luck to win cash prizes if a smaller doll is found within a bigger one.
If the doll is empty, they will lose all of the money they have accumulated.
Babushka will begin on May 1 at 5pm on ITV.
