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?

Adam: It’s a once in a lifetime experience to share with your best friend which isn’t something that comes around very often.
Michael: I couldn’t resist a free holiday in the Caribbean and also getting the chance to meet new people and have some fun.

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

Adam: I’d want to go on an amazing family holiday with my girlfriend and my little boy. I’d then want to book another holiday where I could relax, unwind and work out what else to do with the money.
Michael: The first thing I’d do would be to take my daughter to Disney and spoil her with whatever she wanted. We’d also like to put the money together and buy some property.

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

Adam: Having an opportunity to just be yourself with your best friend and soak up every second was quite something.
Michael: Being able to switch off from the world and immerse yourself in the experience was amazing. Arriving and pulling up to the hotel was also a pinch me moment for sure.

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

Michael: The case swapping often caused lots of drama.

What couples did you get on best with?

Adam: Will and Jo-Anne we got really close to. We got on with everyone really, Jae and Cherish are amazing and we really liked Daniel and Claire.
Michael: Will and Jo-Anne are our best friends from the show.

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

Michael: Tommy and Scott but I’d say that was purely just a male ego thing.
Adam: They were our strongest competition for sure which is why we wanted to try and eliminate them once we met them.

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

Micky Flannagan, Jimmy Bullard and Marilyn Monroe.

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

Adam: Having an unforgettable experience with your best pal.
Michael: We sat on the plane on the way home and looked at one another and just said to have the experience was just surreal in the best possible way.
