ITV viewers have flocked to a new game show that many are comparing to BBC’s hit series The Traitors.

Hosted by Stephen Mangan, The Fortune Hotel is set at a luxury hotel in the Caribbean and starts with 10 couples all being given a briefcase.

Eight cases are empty, one contains an early check-out card, and another contains a jackpot cash prize of £250,000.

During the series the contestants can bid and deal among each other to swap cases after undertaking various challenges.

The first episode hit screens on Monday night, and while many couldn’t help but compare the two shows, some said they were excited to see how this new concept played out.

‘I feel like I can see myself checking in for the duration. It’s a hit!’ one viewer posted on X.

‘Ooh Fortune Hotel is a bit like The Traitors in the Caribbean. Even the music is similar,’ Karen shared.

‘Yes, it’s similar to The Traitors but I enjoyed that – nicer surroundings (too),’ another added.

Meanwhile Dylan said the show was ‘giving me a mix of The Traitors and Deal or No Deal’.

Although the show did have its critics who said it had a lot more to do in order to measure up to the hit BBC series, some said they would be giving it another chance.

‘Did I just sit and slate this whole episode? Yes. Will I watch again? Ofc,’ Rhi explained.

Taking on ITV’s answer to The Traitors, actor and comedian Stephen, 55, previously spokeabout the difference between this game show and Strictly star Claudia Winkleman’s.

‘First of all, we are in the sunny Caribbean. We’re not in a gloomy Scottish castle. That brings a whole different feeling to it. It just feels lighter and funnier,’ he said.

‘It’s a game of bluff, intrigue, forming alliances, all that good stuff, and it gets more and more gripping as the series goes on.

‘But what I love about this show is that it’s not just an hour of tension and drama. It’s funny and it’s fascinating how people behave. They ask each other blunt questions. Some people can’t lie and some are scarily good at it.’

The Fortune Hotel continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV1.
