Fans of traditional television gameshows have been given a boost with the announcement the classic series Mr & Mrs is being revived.
The programme relied on the simple format of watching a husband and wife interact, and sometimes disagree, on screen - in contrast to today's quizzes which feature dramatically lit sets or intimidating presenters.
The show attracted nine million viewers during its heyday in the 1970s and is being reworked by the the production company Celador who make Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Mr & Mrs was first broadcast in the Border region of ITV in 1967 before being picked up nationally in 1973 and running until 1988.
Derek Batey was the show's original presenter and responsible for bringing it to screens as a director of programmes at Border Television.
Mr & Mrs tests how much, or how little, couples know each other, by separately asking each partner three multiple-choice questions about their spouses' everyday habits or their married life, while that person is sitting in a booth unable to hear. Six out of six correct answers earned the couple the jackpot prize which rolled over by ten pounds with each unsuccessful couple. Losing couples walked away with just a carriage clock.
It was revived in 1999 with comic Julian Clary hosting the series but was dropped after a few screenings.
A number of classic game-shows are also making a comeback with Joe Pasquale presenting the 1980s series The Price Is Right, and Family Fortunes reportedly being remade for ITV.
