Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming game show on Channel 4.

What are the rules of One and Six Zeros?

Players start with £1,000,000 and are tasked with correctly answering seven general knowledge questions to keep the jackpot intact.

Each correct answer locks in a digit of ones and six zeros.

If teams answer any of the questions posed by presenter Dara Ó Briain incorrectly, they will lose a zero from the prize fund, and it could drop from £1,000,000 to £100 very quickly.

However, if the team doesn’t want to risk answering a particular question, they can trade it for another – but swapping questions comes at a cost.

After three questions, the team is reduced from three players to two.

Then after five questions, there is only one player left to tackle the last two questions alone.

Who is the presenter of the show Dara Ó Briain?

One and Six Zeros is hosted by comedian and TV presenter Dara Ó Briain, best known in the UK for her roles in Mock the Week, Blockbusters and Robot Wars.

Dara Ó Briain said: “I am delighted to be hosting this new quiz show for Channel 4 and Mighty Productions. It should be funny and tense, and you at home will definitely think you could have done better than the competition.

“Besides, I can keep all the money they don’t earn!” I think that’s the deal. I haven’t read the fine print.

When is the show on TV?

The six-part series will debut on TV Sunday, March 13 at 6 p.m. on Channel 4.

The first episode will see Stella, Steve and Laura from Durham testing their general knowledge in a bid to win their life-changing jackpot.
