May 7, 2024 – A thrilling and high-octane new reality entertainment event, The Fortune Hotel is produced by Tuesday’s Child exclusively for ITV and STV, the 8 episodes x 60 minutes prime-time series will invite viewers into a luxury Caribbean resort filled with glamour, opulence and deception.

Hosted by the incomparable Stephen Mangan, 10 pairs of contestants will arrive at The Fortune Hotel, where they will be given an all-important briefcase. Inside one case is the ultimate jackpot of £250,000 in cash, eight are empty, and one contains the dreaded Early Checkout Card – whichever pair is left holding that case at the end of each show will see their stay brought to a dramatic, premature end.

Every day the contestants have the chance to try to uncover who has which case through playing compelling challenges, and as the “Whogotit” mystery ramps up for the hotel guests, viewers at home will remain deliciously in-the-know throughout, witness to all of their plans and strategies playing out.

The climax of each episode is the nerve-shredding case swap in the seductive Lady Luck bar where each pair must decide whether to keep or swap their case. Have the couple with the life-changing sum of cash managed to bluff and blag their way free of suspicion? Or will their case be ruthlessly taken off them? And who will be left holding the case containing the Early Checkout Card?

Why have you chosen to visit The Fortune Hotel?

Scott: It was impossible to say no to a holiday in a 5 star resort, we jumped at the chance.
Tommy: Two best friends bluffing our way to get 250K whilst being in the sun was a no brainer.

How would you spend the 250K prize money if you won it?

Tommy: I’d pay off my parents mortgage and invest the money so I could live as comfortably as possible.
Scott: I’d think about it wisely but would definitely want to invest it.

What was the most memorable experience you had during the filming?

Scott: Every day was a different experience, we had some amazing moments in the challenges, there were so many pinch me moments.
Tommy: We really had to dig our way out of certain situations so that was always an experience.

What was the most dramatic moment you encountered whilst staying at The Fortune Hotel?

Tommy: It would have to be any time spent in the Lady Luck Bar.
Scott: I agree, you could sense everyone's nerves and no one knows who has what in terms of the money, the empty case or the Checkout card.

What couples did you get on best with?

Scott: Jae and Cherish for sure, they were like sisters to us on the show. We were both Londoners and seemed to have the same banter as them as we were all there for the same reason which was to have a good time.

Who did you have the most disagreements with during your stay?

Tommy: We only had one big disagreement and that was with Will and Jo-Anne.
Scott: I also had a run in with Daniel but there were tense moments with Will and Jo-Anne for sure.

If you could invite any three celebrities to stay alongside you at The Fortune Hotel who would they be?

Cristiano Ronaldo, Christian Bale and Wayne Rooney.

What were the biggest perks of being a guest at The Fortune Hotel?

Tommy: Being treated like a king.
Scott: The weather and getting to cruise around on speed boats!
