Millions of pounds of Cube viewers are under great pressure after the sound of a crucial moment in a game show was interrupted.
After a five-year absence, the ITV series is back for its first episode With so many new changes to the format, competitors have nine lives to compete in seven different games, each of which has an increasing price for money as they move closer to the jackpot.
Comedian Mo Gilligan and actor David Ajao competed together in tonight’s edition and advanced to the third round, earning $ 10,000.
For this round, the two have to play together and pass nine blocks through holes in the wall to each other and place them on their podiums within the allotted time.
Moy and David had already lost a lot of lives in this minigame, so the tension was so great that the pair gave it all up, their eyes on the prize.
With two lives left, Moe and David tried again, but Shaw began to have better problems.
During the weather phase of the episode, many people could not hear what was happening and the fans at home were angry that this had happened.
Someone wrote on Twitter: ‘Has the beep to start the last game increased your number?’
When someone else is eating: ‘Um, what happened to the sound.’
‘Someone else’s voice tired on ITV ???’ Asked another spectator.
Thankfully, the sound came back just as the mini-game was over, however some viewers were now confused by what had happened.
ITV later apologized for the technical issues that some may have experienced while watching the show between the final credits of the episode.
Fortunately for Moe and David, they were able to finish the game with two lives left, but they decided to end the time on the show as they felt they could not finish the next round.
They both went with the $ 10,000 they chose to donate to 100 Black Men and the Allbrighton Community Center.
Jason Manford and his brother Steven attended tonight’s edition of the series, but decided to quit after earning $ 1 million. The money they raise will be donated to charities of their choice Children’s Adventure Farm Trust and Theater Artist Fund.
The million pound cube remains on ITV next Saturday at 9pm.
