'Saturday Night Takeaway' To Give Stephen Mulhern's 'In For A Penny Segment' Its Own Show?

'We’re hoping to get it off the ground later this year.'

Stephen Mulhern is in talks to land his very own spin-off of ‘Ant And Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’, he’s revealed.

The ‘Britain’s Got More Talent’ presenter currently fronts the ‘In For A Penny, In For A Grand’ segment, in which he hits the streets to convince members of the public to take on a variety of silly challenges, with the possibility of winning £1000.

According to the man himself, the reception to the recurring feature has been so strong that producers are keen to make it a gameshow in itself, with Stephen returning to host.

As well as regular appearances on ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’, where he also fronted the ‘Ant vs. Dec’ segment, Stephen fronted a revived version of ‘Catchphrase’ on ITV, and more recently co-hosted ‘Go For It’, a search for the country’s next top magician, with Rochelle Humes.
