Fun House is back. After 16 years off air, the ITV children’s game show is set to make a minor comeback, with original cast members Pat Sharp, along with twins Melanie and Martina Grant, returning as hosts.

Family pub and restaurant brand Fayre & Square has teamed up with children’s play centre Wacky Warehouse to bring back the 90’s TV sensation for one day only.

The event won’t be televised but will be a day of challenges, including the classic gunge tank quiz, taking place in Lichfield on 13 June.

Four families, chosen by the companies, will compete for a holiday worth £1,000.


“It’s been a dream of mine to bring back Fun House for over a decade, so I’m over the moon that (in some shape or form) it’s finally happening,” said host Pat Sharp.

“The Family Fun House day looks set to be extremely exciting and Melanie, Martina and I can’t wait to get out there and do what we do best – host Fun House.”

Families can nominate themselves and a child to enter the competition by visiting the Fayre & Square website, applications closing 30 May. 

With TV reboots happening left, right and centre, would it be any surprise if the TV show was scheduled for another season at some stage?
