Gordon Ramsay is swapping the kitchen for the quizzing arena in his brand new BBC game show called Gordon Ramsay’s Bank Balance. 

The new quiz show challenges pairs of contestants to balance a series of gold bars on a balancing board with the chance to win increasing amounts of money, but if the board collapses, they go home with nothing.

Discussing the new show on radiotimes.com, Ramsay said he was addicted to a board game version of the show during lockdown, so figured he should try make a production out of it. 

“As lockdown began to ease and as we [Studio Ramsay] started pitching the idea to the networks, I realised I was so invested in the game that I couldn’t just step away and let someone else host it,” he said. 

The first episode of the show aired on BBC One on Wednesday and is set to run for a nail-biting three weeks.

Lots hs been said about Ramsay's inability to 'hold his tongue' but the celebrity chef has ensured he will be on his best behaviour for the new show. 

At this stage there is no knowing whether the show will eventually be aired in New Zealand, but watch this space.
