Channel 5 show with popular host 'returning for second series' | The Sun

A CHANNEL 5 show with a popular host looks set to return for a second series.

Puzzling landed on the channel earlier this year with Lucy Worsley OBE as host.

The show, which ran for a total of 13 episodes, with the final instalment airing last week.

As fans hope for another series of the programme, applications have been opened by producers.

However, brainy hopefuls are being informed that they're registering for a 'potential' second series.

The Sun understands the show has not yet been recommissioned and discuses between Channel 5 and the production company are underway.

Puzzling with Lucy Worsley viewers rip into ‘painful’ hosting on new quiz show

Only the brainiest can win Channel 5’s new quiz Puzzling – how many can you get?

It sees contestants' problem-solving skills challenged as they do battle to be hailed Britain’s ultimate puzzler.

At the start of each episode, six super smart strangers are split into two teams of three.

The two teams try to accrue the most points through their powers of puzzling deduction.

Every area of the player’s mind is tested across five puzzling rounds – In Other Words (language), Pressure Points (calculation), Rule Breakers (lateral thinking), Picture This (visual intelligence) and Memory Bank (memory).

"I’ve spent most of my career finding answers to historical questions so getting to ask the questions is going to be an exciting new adventure for me, I can’t wait to get puzzling!"

Puzzling is available now on My5.
