Winning Combination will be the first game show created by production company Potato since The Chase was first launched in 2009. It was reportedly piloted earlier this year, with ITV now signing off a full series commission, with the show possibly airing in Autumn 2020.
Although this is the first time Djalili has hosted a quiz, the comedian has previously appeared on all-star game shows, including one of The Chase Celebrity Specials.
Djalili also featured in Comic Relief’s Celebrity Apprentice where he performed in balloon burlesque trio The Greatest Show on Legs. Not surprisingly, he was fired after one of the group accidentally exposed themselves in a crowded cabaret show.
