Mulhern said: “It’s humbling to know that people enjoyed watching the show as much as we enjoyed making it.

“We met some incredible people on the first series and I can’t wait to get back out on the streets of the UK meeting the great British public and challenging them to take part in some silly games. It’s the best job in the world.”

Among the games to return is the “stop watch game”, which gives shoppers the chance to win £1,000.

Ant & Dec, co-creators of the format, added: “Another series? You’ve got to be kidding! That’s brilliant news because that means when he’s out on the street filming this, he isn’t bothering us.  Pennies at the ready Great Britain.”

In For A Penny is a ITV Studios and Mitre Television co-production for ITV. ITV did not say when the show would be returning.
