Alan Carr’s Picture Slam’s inaugural series maintained an impressive average of 3.3 million viewers over its eight-episode span. The penultimate episode, in particular, reached its pinnacle with an average of 4.6 million viewers, solidifying its status as the BBC’s biggest Entertainment launch of the previous year and the second most significant new Entertainment launch across the market in 2023.

Picture Slam, the game that demands knowledge about everything, unfolds with three teams of two contestants battling against the clock. Their mission: to identify as many pictures as possible and vie for the coveted £10,000 jackpot.

Alan Carr says: “I am over the moon that Picture Slam is coming back, I love the show so much and I’m bowled over by how popular it’s become. It’s manic, a little bit random and full of fun – it’s like if I was a quiz show!!! Let’s do it all over again!”
