POPULAR television game show 'In for a Penny' has been filming in Chester city centre today (September 29).

Well-known host Stephen Mulhern and his crew were spotted on Eastgate Street this morning where they have been filming for the latest series.

The Saturday night ITV show sees Mr Mulhern visit cities and towns across the UK to find people to complete a variety of challenges.

At the end of each episode, members of the public are invited to take part in the segment 'In for a Penny, In for a Grand', but they can only be ‘in’ if they have a penny on them.

The pop-up game show was based on the original 'Ant ‘n’ Dec `Saturday Night Takeaway' feature and it was first broadcast in 2019.
