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.
1990s nostalgia: The top 10
1990s nostalgia: The top 10
1/9 Number 10: Not being able to change plans using mobiles
Don't you miss the time when plans never changed at the last minute because they were made on a landline? 22 per cent of people agree with you.
2/9 Number 9: Renting videos from the local shop
A quarter of people surveyed said they missed renting videos from the local shop. So much more of an event than going on Netflix.
3/9 Number 8: 90s toys
Troll dolls, Beanie Babies and friendship bracelets were among the toys that 27 per cent of people want back.
4/9 Number 7: Saturday night television
Gladiator's, Noel's Houseparty and Blind Date were among the classics of Saturday night television. 28 per cent of people said they missed watching it with their families.
5/9 Number 6: Waiting for photos to be developed
We're taking more photos than ever but the hundreds of pictures are rarely printed. Almost 30 per cent of people missed waiting for their holiday snaps and making an album.
6/9 Number 5: Hand-written thank you notes
Almost a third of people miss sending and receiving hand-written thank you notes.
7/9 Number 4: Buying singles on cassette or vinyl
Records might be fashionable again but the humble cassette never made a comeback. 32 per cent of people missed buying singles on cassettes or vinyl.
8/9 Number 3: Top of the Pops
Cancelled in 2006, TOTP was an institution for more than 40 years. 34 per cent of people would still rather watch it than trawl YouTube for music videos.
9/9 Number 2: Having pen pals
Pen pals from school could last for years, especially with the time it took to actually write and post letters. 35 of people think email just isn't the same.
“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?Reuse content
