ITV check-in to The Fortune Hotel

The Fortune Hotel opens its doors next week…

A thrilling and high-octane new reality entertainment event, The Fortune Hotel is an eight-part prime-time series will invite viewers into a luxury Caribbean resort filled with glamour, opulence and deception… Hosted by the incomparable Stephen Mangan, 10 pairs of contestants will arrive at hotel, where they will be given an all-important briefcase. Inside one case is the ultimate jackpot of £250,000 in cash, eight are empty, and one contains the dreaded Early Checkout Card – whichever pair is left holding that case at the end of each show will see their stay brought to a dramatic, premature end.

Host, Stephen Mangan:

“The opportunity to head to the Caribbean sounded very interesting on its own before you even get to what else is involved. That’s the thing that first got my attention but when the game itself was explained to me and I played it, it’s just brilliant. The game is pretty simple but endlessly fascinating so a combination of that alongside the backdrop in which it was set was just pretty irresistible.”

Every day the contestants have the chance to try to uncover who has which case through playing compelling challenges, and as the “Whodoneit” mystery ramps up for the hotel guests, viewers at home will remain deliciously in-the-know throughout, witness to all of their plans and strategies playing out.

The climax of each episode is the nerve-shredding case swap in the seductive Lady Luck Bar where each pair must decide whether to keep or swap their case. Have the couple with the life-changing sum of cash managed to bluff and blag their way out of suspicion? Or will their case be ruthlessly taken from them? And who will be left holding the case containing the Early Checkout Card?

Host, Stephen Mangan:

“We’ve got people of all ages, from all parts of the country, from all different backgrounds. Some of them got on like a house on fire and some wanted to set each other’s houses on fire. You put twenty people at random together regardless of how luxurious the resort is, some are going to get on and some aren’t. People trying to cover up the fact they didn’t like each other was almost funnier and more dramatic than people being openly hostile to one another. We’ve all been on holiday and found we’ve met someone that gets up our nose or found friends that we want to be mates with forever and this is no different.”

The Fortune Hotel airs every Monday-Thursday at 9pm on ITV1, ITVX, STV and STV Player from May 13th
