Stephen Mulhern’s popular game show Rolling In It returns to ITV on 10 July 2021 at 7pm with a new series. 

Rolling In It debuted on ITV last August and was an instant Saturday night hit. 

Each episode sees three members of the public paired with a celebrity. During the game they must roll a giant coin towards different slots for cash. But if the coin goes down the ‘Bankrupt’ slot they may lose everything. 

During the game contestants also have the opportunity to steal each other’s money. And with the potential to win a whopping £45,000 Rolling In It gets intense - and the celebrities get competitive!

Stephen on returning with Series Two of Rolling In It: "It’s exciting! It’s always a risk doing a brand new game show, and this took everybody by surprise. 

"I love hosting Catchphrase and In for a Penny but for me Rolling In It delivers everything. Excitement, shock, and drama. You just don’t know what’s going to happen because it’s completely down to luck.

"I genuinely believe - and this is quite a statement - Rolling In It is the best game show on TV!"

When will Series 2 of Rolling In It air?

ITV announced earlier this year that Rolling In It was being recommissioned for a second series. Filming has taken place and it’s due to air on ITV on 10 July. There are currently no plans for the gameshow to be aired in the US. 

Excited about filming Series 2 Stephen, 44, recently posted this picture on Twitter...

Which stars have signed up for Rolling In It Series 2?

Household names including Jennie McAlpine, Jimmy Carr, Joel Dommett, Chris Kamara, Gemma Collins, Joe Swash and Fleur East signed up for Series 1. 

Speaking about the celebrities popping up in Series 2 Stephen Mulhern says: 

"Our soap special with Simon Gregson, Lisa Riley and Richard Blackwood is brilliant. 

"We have guests you wouldn’t normally see on game shows. James Martin said he doesn’t do these sorts of shows, but he saw the first series and had to do it. And Sarah Millican goes from excitement to seeing how brutal the game can be."

What else is there to know about Rolling In It?

Series 1 of Rolling In It was regularly one of the most watched shows of the evening and attracted a peak audience of 4.2 million.   

While contestants must answer general knowledge questions during the arcade-style game, luck plays a big part.  

As the game progresses, the money values get larger, but so do the penalties. The roll of one final coin determines whether contestants leave empty handed or go home ‘Rolling In It.’

Stephen Mulhern says: “I thoroughly enjoyed making this series and I am delighted that the viewers loved it as much as I did and that we get the chance to do it all again.” 

Rolling In It - Series 2 Guide:

Rolling In It - Series 2 Episode 1

Game show guru Stephen Mulhern makes a welcome return with a new series of last year’s surprise hit. In the first episode of the second series comedian Sarah Millican is emotionally invested when paired with postman Peter. 

Strictly’s Oti Mabuse is poised to help pivot her partner, nurse Joel, towards the final roll. While Martin Kemp is coupled with - and this much is true - one of his biggest fans. Will starstruck supermarket manager Jorden strike gold? 

Who goes home with a big cash prize depends on random general knowledge questions and the toss of an oversized coin. Like Tipping Point turned on its side, this is unadulterated family fun. 

Will there be a third series of Rolling In It?

While ITV have yet to confirm a third series of Rolling In It, Stephen is already dreaming of future guest stars:

"I’d love Ant and Dec to do it. But would we split them up? Or would they play with one person? 

"Think Peter Kay would be incredible. People who are kind are ideal for the show. If we had Holly [Willoughby] and somebody rolled a lose, the contestant might be upset, but Holly would be in tears!"
