Release The Hounds: Jingle Hell II (ITV 9 Dec with Reggie Yates)


AIRDATE: Wednesday 9 December 2015 at 10.00pm on ITV 2

ITV2 once again welcomes former The Voice presenter and Radio 1 DJ Reggie Yates as he hosts a brand new yuletide special of this unique and hilariously scary horror game show.

In each episode, three unsuspecting contestants enter a forest at dusk in a quest to unlock chests full of prize money. Little do they know that in order to win, they must face some of the scariest challenges ever endured on television.

Reggie remains in close contact with the trio throughout, communicating, perhaps wisely, from a location just outside the forest! In this special Jingle Hell- themed episode, three reps from ITV2’s Weekender series swap fun in the sunshine for freakiness in the forest. To locate the keys to the chests, the three friends must endure untold horror, all in the name of entertainment!

In previous episodes, players have encountered a field of crucified scarecrows, descended beneath the floorboards of a deserted cabin and read bedtime stories in the nursery from hell. As this Christmas special unfolds, what fresh festive hell and further spooky Santa-related tasks await?

The ultimate challenge requires the gang to outrun a pack of real hounds which have been trained to guard the prize cash. If the competitors manage to escape, the money belongs to the charity of their choice. If not, the alternative outcome is almost unthinkable!
