Viewers demand Price Is Right return after Alan Carr special
Viewers loved the new face of the game show.
Television viewers are begging for a return of The Price Is Right following a one-off episode hosted by comedian Alan Carr.
The special edition saw Carr follow in the footsteps of the late Sir Bruce Forsyth – who famously presented the game show between 1995 and 2001 – to invite members of the audience to “come on down” and play.
Carr brought light-hearted humour to the Saturday night spectacular on Channel 4 and could barely contain his own joy when contestants won prizes.
The show proved a hit with fans, who took to Twitter to ask for more.
“Oh I love the Price Is Right and @AlanCarr makes it even more brilliant!” posted one. “Can we keep it? I promise I’ll look after it….”
