Game show Release The Hounds is set to air on ITV later this month.
The latest game from the broadcaster sees three unsuspecting contestants enter a forest at dusk, in a quest to unlock chests full of prize money. The not so fearless friends responded to an advert for the chance to win, but little do they know, in order to win big, they have to face the scariest challenges ever endured on TV.
To locate the keys, the friends must enter a field of crucified scarecrows, descend beneath the floorboards in a deserted cabin, and read bedtime stories in the nursery from hell. But the ultimate challenge for them all is to out-run a pack of hounds, trained to guard the cash. If they manage to escape, the money belongs to them. If they don’t….
Release The Hounds is filmed in a remote forest, from dusk through the dead of night. Presented by Reggie Yates, the host is in communication from outside the forest, following the contestants progress throughout their fright night ordeal.
Release The Hounds begins on ITV2 from Monday October 28th at 10pm
