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?

Chloe: Louie asked me if I’d be up for it and I thought free holiday with my bestie and business partner, why not. We also loved the chance to get dressed up every night for filming.
Louie: I was interested in the experience and the chance to win such a huge amount of money.

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

Chloe: I’d spend it on holidays, jewellery and bags and of course my daughter.
Louie: We’d absolutely blow it on having a fabulous time.

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

Chloe: Living in the hotel, no holiday will ever compare, it was out of this world. Even during the filming, I just kept thinking to myself this is the life!
Louie: I’d say the same but even getting to explore the Caribbean and meeting all the locals was incredible. I also loved the challenges as they were unlike anything you do in day to day life.

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

Chloe: There were so many big characters with people from all walks of life which naturally meant that not everyone gelled which often meant things were tense but it was all part of the game.
Louie: Daniel kept asking me questions about my career as I think he thought it was a cover up, it was either that or he wanted a consultation but I had to remind him that I charge for those.

What couples did you get on best with?

Chloe: Will and Jo-Anne were so genuine but I also loved Abbie and Tracey as they were just crazy.
Louie: Adam and Mike were so funny, we loved those guys.

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

Chloe: Daniel and Claire, I had a bit of a confrontation with them in the Lady Luck Bar which I think they took personally.

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

Gemma Collins, Rochelle Humes and Charlotte Crosby.

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

Chloe: Living the luxury life for free was amazing, the opulence and glamour was something I’ll never forget.
Louie: The not knowing what was next was a real thrill, everyday was so different and exciting.
