Why this is a great opportunity for your brand

Well Established Format

First appearing on our screens in 1986, Catchphrase is a long running family favourite and a well recognised game show format on British television.

Having been a huge hit on ITV for 18 years, the show was rebuilt and rebooted for a new generation in 2013. The show received a brand new set and new animations, but still had the familiar format and well-loved mascot Mr Chips at the heart of the show.

This is the perfect opportunity for a brand wanting to associate with a well established and known format, in order to build brand fame.

Trusted Talent

Stephen Mulhern is a well loved household name, hosting some of the nation’s most popular entertainment shows.

With over 1m followers across his social media accounts, his loyal fanbase makes Catchphrase Celebrity Specials the perfect partner for brands looking to increase trust and brand warmth.

Saturday Night Family Entertainment

Saturday evenings are one of the very few times that families get together in front of the TV, and they seek content that enables these special moments.

Catchphrase Celebrity Specials appeals to the entire family, with 52% of viewing taking place in a co-viewing environment.

This makes Catchphrase Celebrity Specials the perfect opportunity for brands wanting to reach families during a key entertainment slot on the weekend.
