Are there any new games?

There will also be some firsts on the next series, with Stephen introducing several new games including Celebrity Drive Who? where contestants will have to guess who the famous person is taking their order at the drive through.

If they guess the person right by asking a series of yes or no questions, they will get their meal for free, if not, they'll have to pay up.

"We have some great celebrities taking part and they were all game for a laugh which was brilliant," Stephen revealed.

Is there a trailer?

There is a very interesting preview clip, which sees Stephen trying to get some shoppers to bay park.

And judging by some of their driving skills, you'd never believe they actually passed their test!

How did In For A Penny start?

Ant and Dec originally co-created the format for Saturday Night Takeaway, and since then, fans have fallen in love with the wild show.

“Another series? You've got to be kidding! That’s brilliant news because that means when he's out on the street filming this, he isn’t bothering us," the Geordie duo said of the latest series. "Pennies at the ready Great Britain.”


In For A Penny airs on March 28th at 8pm, straight after Saturday Night Takeaway on ITV. If you’re looking for more to watch check out our TV guide.
