5 Star Family Reunion will see a UK family and their long-lost overseas relatives working together, both from the studio and over satellite link, to win a once-in-a-lifetime reunion in a five-star location.
“We are delighted to bring 5 Star family reunion to a BBC One audience. The format promises a perfect combination of head and heart, delivering both terrific stories and ‘edge of the seat’ gameplay.” – Alan Tyler, Executive Editor, Entertainment Commissioning, BBC
Overseas, the family must answer questions to win as much time as they possibly can for the family in studio. That’s because the four in studio will individually face questions against the show’s high-tension timer in a bid to put money in the bank and bring everyone together. If they can prove themselves under pressure, then they are in for the reunion of a lifetime.
5 Star Family Reunion will premiere on BBC One later this year. Reunion shows have proved popular in recent times with television audiences. Surprise Surprise, which was originally dumped by ITV over a decade ago, has been revived with three successful series fronted by Holly Willoughby and Long Lost Family with Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell has proved a ratings banker for the network.
