The new show is ITV’s answer to The Traitors, offering a copycat game show format, and promising to be just as entertaining.

It launched this week (May 13th 2024) and saw 10 pairs of contestants checking into ‘The Fortune Hotel’ in sunny Grenada.

As the contestants check in, each is armed with a briefcase, one holds the coveted £250,000 jackpot, and eight are empty, while another contains the dreaded Early Checkout Card.

Fronting the show, and doubling as hotel manager is Stephen Mangan, who is trying to figure out who covets the life-changing briefcase for himself.


It hasn’t gone unnoticed just how similar the show format is to rival The Traitors on BBC, with some calling it “Traitors with briefcases.”

That said, it’s shaping up to be just as tense, with host Mangan confirming not all contestants got along, with the show full of drama and friction.

Some familiar faces joined the lineup too, as Fortune Hunter Louie has a previous TV past on another reality show.

If you missed the launch show, don’t worry. Catch-up episodes are available on ITVX, but you’ll run into problems trying to access them abroad.

ITVX content is restricted to the UK and blocked overseas. But there’s a simple fix: use a VPN like ExpressVPN or NordVPN to stream the new gameshow anywhere.

VPNs can be easily downloaded online and essentially give you a UK-based IP address, allowing you to bypass content-blocking restrictions. And rest assured, using a VPN is completely legal.
