Netflix's brand new quiz show sees four contestants take on general knowledge questions in an attempt to win up to £50,000 – however, they're encouraged to cheat their way to the fortune.

"In a binge-worthy battle of brains, wit… and barefaced lying, four brave players have their knowledge put to the ultimate test as they bluff and blag across three rounds to avoid elimination and build a potential jackpot of over £50,000," Netflix teases.

While contestants can either use their brains or their blagging skills to avoid elimination to get through three rounds without being elimination, if they do choose to cheat, they can't get caught.

In every round, the players will be building up the prize pot with correct answers, with up to £50,000 up for grabs.

Speaking ahead of the show's debut, Danny Dyer teased that fans can expect "enormous wins, loads of slippery people cheating and banter with the one and only, Ellie Taylor".

Cheat arrives on Netflix on Wednesday 1st March. Sign up for Netflix from £4.99 a month. Netflix is also available on Sky Glass and Virgin Media Stream.
