‘The Bank Job’ on Channel 4 starts in January 2012

George Lamb has been trailing his new Channel 4 quiz show, ‘The Bank Job’ at the close of ‘The Million Pound Drop’ this week.

The Bank Job is a week-long, live game show which gives players the chance to pull off the ultimate heist.

Over five consecutive nights, contestants will battle it out from a real bank in London, in the hopes of winning a place in Saturday’s grand finale where someone will walk away with a life-changing fortune.

Each evening four rivals will enter a bank vault filled with hundreds of thousands of pounds to play a high jeopardy, competitive game of knowledge, judgement and luck. By the end of the night one player will be leaving with a briefcase full of money – the other three will be going home empty-handed.

The programmes are on Channel 4 on:
Monday 2nd January 2012 at 10pm – 11:05pm
Tuesday 3rd January 2012 at 10pm – 11:10pm
Wednesday 4th January 2012 at 10pm – 11:10pm
Thursday 5th January 2012 at 10pm – 11:00pm
Friday 6th January 2012 at 9pm – 10pm

And the grand final on Saturday 7th January 2012.

Host of ‘The Bank Job’ George Lamb said: “I’m super happy to be back at Channel 4, working on such an exciting and ground-breaking live show. If you cross an edge-of-your-seat game show with Ocean’s Eleven and add a twist of real-time viewing then you’ve got The Bank Job.”

To become a contestant on ‘The Bank Job’ you’ll need to play the online game that has launched on www.channel4.com/bankjob to unlock the exclusive application form.
