Netflix are looking to crack into the world of British gameshows with an original high-stakes quiz – Cheat.

Presented by British TV stars Danny Dyer and Ellie Taylor, the show has a potential £50,000 jackpot for the contestants, but there is one catch – the aim of the game is to cheat your way to the top prize.

Unlike most TV quiz shows, there is more to the game than a battle of brains and wit. Contestants will also be rewarded for lying, bluffing and blagging their way through the show.

In this show, there is only one rule - don't get caught.

Talking about the new series, Ellie Taylor said: "What a total babe of a show to work on - brilliant game, ace crew and contestants, plus Danny was the best company a treacle could ask for. Can’t wait for you to see it."

Writing about the series on Instagram, the always colouful Dyer said: "A blinding little gig I did with Ellie Taylor starts on the 1 March on Netflix. She’s a proper treacle and I think you’re all gonna love it. It’s a game show full of slippery f***ers trying to cheat their way to some serious readies… beautiful."
