Comedian Jason Manford is to front brand new ITV game show What Would Your Kid Do?
Each episode challenges parents to predict how their children will behave in a variety of situations. Every show will see the kids filmed in a real world setting – they’ll think it’s just another day at school, unaware they’ll go through a number of tasks that will explore everything from curiosity to lateral thinking, risk taking to rule breaking.
As the situations unfold, Jason will ask the parents to predict how their child will react to each one – will the mums and dads know the children quite as well as they think they do? At the end of the show the parents who have most accurately predicated their child’s behaviour will play for a family prize alongside their son or daughter.
Jason, who hosted ITV game show Bigheads earlier this year, says, “You are going to love this show! As a dad of five children, I am constantly left in tears laughing at some of the stuff that comes out their mouths, but I’m also often bowled over by their inquisitive minds and sense of right and wrong. So the idea of putting them in this kind of situation – where we get to watch them in as natural an environment as possible – seeing how they react, whilst I’m in the studio quizzing the parents…well, let me tell you…it’s a show that’s as packed full of laughs as it is surprises. A real heart-warming family series and it’s an honour to be asked to be part of it.”
