Bigger and better than ever before, the much-loved family game show The Generation Game is back, with Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins running proceedings.

Pairs of family members across generations will battle it out in a series of fun performance and task based games with the ultimate goal of facing the legendary conveyor belt, and taking home an array of fabulous prizes.

This classic show combines elements everyone knows and loves from the original series whilst being brought up to date with a riotous selection of brand new games and challenges for families of all ages to play in studio and enjoy watching at home, some involving special celebrity guests.

Mel and Sue are joined by a panel of star judges, there to score our family pairs after each game and ultimately decide which pair faces the conveyor belt and infamous cuddly toy.
