Property show presenter Phil Spencer is turning quiz show host for Channel 4.
The Location Location Location star will host new series, The Common Denominator, as part of a range of new daytime shows.
Phil's show will require contestants to use lateral thinking to work out connections between seemingly unrelated things.
The 40-show series will be screened early next year.
Other new programmes include a quiz for Rory Bremner who will present Race The Clock, and Sandi Toksvig - normally a BBC regular - will front a game show called 1001 Things You Should Know, due to air next month.
Channel 4 head of formats Dominic Bird said: "This raft of new commissions reflects just some of the fresh and original output that will start to shape the daytime schedule in the coming months."
The station celebrates its 30th birthday this week.
