Remember The Cube? ITV's fan-favourite game show is back this weekend, with telly favourite Phillip Schofield returning as host.

The show's new format, called The Million Pound Cube, will see contestants take on the Cube for a whopping £1 million jackpot, five years after the original game show series came to an end.

For the 2020 edition, contestants compete in pairs rather than solo, and will complete a mix of "solo games and brand-new, two-player challenges".

Dropping at 9pm on Saturday 18th October, episode one will see plucky contenders Jason Manford and Mo Gilligan try their luck against the 4m × 4m × 4m Perspex cube.

ITV said of the new format: "Each pair will have nine lives to complete seven games, each worth an increasing amount of money as they move closer to the huge jackpot.

"Players will have to overcome extreme nerves and frustration as they take on deceivingly simple tasks such as bouncing a ball into a container, balancing on a beam or stopping a clock at precisely 10 seconds.

"But will they have what it takes to beat the mighty Cube?

"The new series will see pairs of contestants from the same household take on The Million Pound Cube. As well as facing solo games, they will also face brand-new, two-player challenges.

The Cube ran for nine seasons between 2009 and 2015 and quickly won a dedicated fanbase thanks to its deceptively simple tasks and nail-biting format, which made it addictive viewing.

Following on from Saturday night's first episode, ITV's 2020 series will air every night next week featuring members of the public.

There will then be a special celebrity one-off show, featuring Strictly Come Dancing couple Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton.

We can't wait for this reboot of the iconic game show.

The Cube returns to ITV at 9pm on Saturday 18th October.
