I TALK TO Sam & Mark

15 years on from meeting on Pop Idol, I caught up with Sam & Mark to discuss their new BBC One gameshow, Ready or Not, their friendship and whether or not a return to music is on the cards.


From the supermarket to the seaside, Blackpool Tower to Birmingham city centre, Ready or Not brings a hilarious twist to the traditional gameshow. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, a crack team of quiz show hosts will be ready to surprise unsuspecting members of the public with their crazy games.


Paddy McGuinness provides the voiceover for the show and Sam and Mark’s section of the show takes place in a South London shopping centre car park! Once someone calls for a lift, what they don’t know is that Sam & Mark will be there waiting for them and all they have to do is answer a general knowledge question right and guess correctly which floor either Sam or Mark are waiting on to claim their prize. Simple.
