Julia Bradbury to host daytime quiz for ITV

Julia Bradbury is to host a new daytime quiz show for ITV called Take On The Twisters.

Producers of hit programme Eggheads are making the show, in which Countryfile presenter Julia will ask contestants a combination of quick-fire and multiple-choice questions as they and their opponents battle it out against a giant timer.

ITV has commissioned 30 60-minute episodes of Take On The Twisters, where contestants must use knowledge and strategy to outwit the timer and win the thousands of pounds up for grabs.

"Take On The Twisters is an exciting new quiz format with a combination of great play-along and real drama. Julia is the perfect person to front this show," 12 Yard managing director Andy Culpin told Broadcast magazine.

Take On The Twisters was commissioned by Diana Howie, who also ordered successful ITV daytime quizzes The Chase and Tipping Point.
