Synopsis: CHEAT is a ground-breaking high-stakes quiz show where contestants can literally CHEAT their way to a fortune.… as long as they don't get caught! In every episode, four brave players have their knowledge put to the ultimate test, as they fight it out over three rounds to avoid elimination and build a jackpot worth up to £50,000. But there’s one crucial twist in this brand-new quiz show… if you don’t know the answer… it pays to CHEAT!
Cheat is based on an original idea by Giles Boden and developed by Laura Gibson & Charlie Bennett.
