Keep It In The Family, 2014

Perhaps one of the best game shows TV has produced in recent years.  Keep It In The Family (not to be confused with the sitcom of the same name) was the perfect family game show and it’s a real shame it didn’t last longer,.

First aired in 2014 on a Sunday night it fast became popular enough to warrant a primetime Saturday night slot for series two.  Sadly 2 series and a special meant we only ever got 13 shows, like the Generation Game, I always felt it could have kept going for longer.


Contestants comprise: two families of four participate in a series of rounds for the chance to win prizes, including a family holiday.

The children take the lead in the show rather than the parents. The rounds feature family members nominated for routines, dressing up as TV characters and trying to guess phrases based on clues given by grandmothers.

For the final round celebrities appear on a raised stage and may be dropped down a trapdoor depending on the prizes chosen by the contestants.
