Simon Cowell London, Feb 16 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Simon Cowell is planning a new game show in which the winner can walk away richer by 1 million pounds.

According to reports by The Sun, the new game show would be inspired by a lottery-style programme. The venue of the show would be in London’s Wembley Arena in which the participants would have to pay out of their own pockets 1 pound to enter the game show.

After the draw, the lucky competitor who is chosen out of the competing players would participate in a number of live challenges and could also walk away with the top prize of 1 million pounds. The name of the show is yet to be finalized but at the moment it is being called ‘Roulette’. And Simon Cowell has already thought about who would host it – the interesting Britain’s Got Talent’ duo – Ant and Dec.

According to The Sun, a source said that, “It is a big gamble for Simon as it could be telly’s biggest ever turkey if it goes wrong. This will be one of the most ambitious TV shows ever stage. Details are under wraps for now but the idea is that people will pay a small price - say £1 - to get a ticket which will give them a chance of taking part. Simon is confident that because millions vote for the X Factor every week they will be prepared to pay.”
