Summary

Catchphrase: A British game show that originally aired on ITV from 1986 to 2004 and was revived in 2013 with new host Stephen Mulhern. The show features contestants identifying familiar phrases represented by animations accompanied by background music. The game was created by Steve Radosh, who also created the American version of the show. The main game consists of three rounds, with the cash prize for the first two rounds starting at £100 and increasing by £50 each round thereafter. The revived series has three contestants instead of two, and no particular attention is paid to gender. The Super Catchphrase round requires the winning contestant to solve a catchphrase behind one of 25 squares, with each correct square worth a predetermined amount of money. The show has undergone several changes in format over the years, including the introduction of the Ready Money Round in series 2 and the Cash Countdown in 2000. Notable moments in the show's history include a ready money bonus catchphrase in 1994 that caused the audience, contestants, and host Roy Walker to laugh uncontrollably.The History of Catchphrase
