Letterbox (BBC-2 2017, Mel Giedroyc)

Letterbox Mel Giedroyc

Letterbox is a new quiz show from David Young, the producer of Eggheads and The Weakest Link. Mel Giedroyc will host.

Letterbox sees pairs of contestants (couples, family, friends, work colleagues) compete head to head in an attempt to crack a series of passwords hoping to walk away with £2000 in their banks. Described as a simple yet addictive word game, Letterbox is light-hearted and is designed to be played-along-at-home with the audience.

Mel Giedroyc says: “I played a version of this game and was a) extremely competitive at it, b) annoyingly bad at it, c) strangely addicted to it, d) needed to do more of it, e) asked the big cheeses if I could present it, f) was delighted when they said yes, g) can’t wait to start recording the shows and meeting the contestants, h) hoping to get seriously skilled at playing it so that i) I’ll be able to SMASH IT if the board game comes out. Now how many letters have I used up? (see what I did there).”
