The new quiz show is currently filming in Belfast.

The Finish Line is due to air on BBC One later in 2023, coming from production company Potato, the same folk behind the hit quiz show The Chase.

The official synopsis of the show is as follows:

Contestants compete in quiz-fuelled races across a unique racetrack set. Knowledge equals speed; the more you know, the further you go. In each episode, hosted by Roman Kemp and assisted by Sarah Greene, five contestants battle across a series of qualifiers and head-to-head races for the chance to win a cash prize. The aim of the game is simple – make it to the finish line before your rivals.

On the new show, Roman Kemp said: “I’m so excited to be hosting The Finish Line, coming to BBC One later this year. I’m a huge fan of quiz shows and with this being my first time hosting one, I really can’t wait to get stuck in. I love that it’s a brand-new format but based on an iconic horse-racing fairground game. The show is set to be challenging and unpredictable; we know that viewers will be hooked!”

Sarah Greene added: “This will be fantastic fun and so I am really looking forward to working with Roman on this new format. It’s all about high-energy, high-drama racing and quick-fire questions, and I’ll be bringing my A-game to ensure that Roman and the contestants are kept on the straight and narrow.”

BBC have already signed up The Finish Line for 25 episodes, clearly expecting a similarly-sized hit to The Chase. Once we get an exact release date for the new series, we’ll let you know!
