A brand new series of the hit gameshow The Cube is returning to our TV screens this year – and you could be a part of it.

ITV is encouraging the people of Greater Manchester to get their applications in.

Based on the idea that even straightforward tasks become extremely challenging when confined and put under pressure inside a small, enclosed area whilst surrounded by a live studio audience, The Cube – which first aired back in 2015, and is presented by Philip Schofield – offers contestants the chance to win a top prize of £250,000 by completing a series of challenges from within a 4m × 4m × 4m perspex cube.

Challenges tend to involve physical and mental tasks including catching, throwing, estimating, reacting, memorising and balancing.

Once inside The Cube, contestants tend to feel both claustrophobic and disoriented, which affects their concentration and abilities, so put simply – it’s no easy feat.


Reckon you’re up to the task though?

“Remember, there are NO general knowledge questions to answer.

“The Cube will set you and your teammate a series of physical and mental challenges for the chance to win a huge cash prize of £250,000.

“Can you work together to take on the ultimate TV gameshow in the hope of beating The Cube?”
