Viewers tuning in to watch the latest episode of Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow have called for Name That Tune to make a permanent comeback, with one person describing the edition as a ‘class show’.
Name That Tune, based on the US programme of the same name, aired for several years over the course of the seventies, eighties and nineties, last being hosted by Jools Holland in 1998.
On Saturday evening’s edition of Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow, players Rachel, Marvin, Danielle and Stuey V took part in the Name That Tune-themed competition, with Danielle eventually taking home a jackpot of £29,475.
With music accompaniment from pop sensation Sophie Ellis-Bextor, the contestants had to ‘name that tune’ for a variety of tracks, with Danielle managing to name Wham!’s Wake Me Up Before You Go Go after hearing just one note and a clue from Alan.
While watching Alan’s gameshow, several viewers said how much they would like to see Name That Tune return as a regular series.
‘We need #NameThatTune every week! Class show,’ one person tweeted.
‘They really should bring #NameThatTune back,’ another said.
Someone else remarked: ‘ITV, I hope this isn’t a one off. Make this a regular series. #NameThatTune.’
‘Let’s start a petition for Name that tune to each regular show #EpicGameshow,’ another wrote.
Other gameshows to have featured on series two of Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow include Play Your Cards Right Celebrity Special, Bullseye and The Price Is Right, with next week’s episode being based on Strike It Lucky.
Last month, Alan spoke about how following a 2016 Stand Up To Cancer special, some people believed that The Chase star Anne Hegerty was his mum.
Speaking to PA, the comedian said:’‘Did you hear those rumours, people thought The Governess was my mum? We did a jokey thing and I pretended she was my mum – and then people thought she actually was my mum…’
Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow returns next Saturday evening on ITV.
