The new show, fronted by Rylan Clark-Neal, airs for the first time this week as The Chase takes its annual break. On the surface, its aim is simple enough: contestants try to win a series of cash prizes hidden in Russian dolls, with the opportunity to win as much as £10,000.

However, ITV has reminded viewers that The Chase often has a holiday and a period off-air. Last summer it was replaced by Cash Trapped, but seeing as that was also hosted by Bradley Walsh fans probably weren’t quite so up in arms. Anyway, this year it’s Babushka.
