Ant & Dec’s production company Gallowgate is being tipped to bring back Hughie Green’s classic quiz format Double Your Money.

Richard Madeley could possibly host the show, rather than Geordie duo Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, who are known for such shows as Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and Gameshow Marathon, according to reports in Broadcast magazine.

It is understood that talks about the possibility of reviving the show are at a very early stage.

The recent BBC Four drama Hughie Green, Most Sincerely, shown as part of its Curse of Comedy season, is said to have sparked renewed interest.

The popular Double Your Money show began life on Radio Luxembourg and moved to ITV, running until 1968.
Contestants’ money was doubled every time they answered correctly.

Richard Madeley’s spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment.
