J! returns to UK w/Stephen Fry hosting
« on: February 27, 2023, 07:19:45 AM »

Premiering this fall and airing for 20 episodes, the article suggests this new version of UK J! may adopt the current U.S. Celebrity J! format with three rounds of gameplay before Final J!

There had been talk for some time about ITV reviving UK J! -- ITV aired three series from 1990-93. A pilot was recorded last year with Richard Madeley hosting but was rejected.

It would appear that Stephen Fry will also be involved in hosting an Australian version as well (in the form of a set of 6 "specials" involving Australian expats currently living in the UK). Filming presumably will be done on the same set as the UK version. Australia hasn't aired its own version since 1993, when Tony Barber (ex Sale of the Century host) brought the format to our shores (albeit for a very brief time).
