The Old ITV.com Competitions Format

NOTE that the information below is for historical reference only and is now out of date.

Back in the day, it was all about the telephone. Contestants were shortlisted to 10 who joined the show live on the phone. During an immensely exciting moment – as a child it really was very exciting, Lorraine Kelly would ask the computer to select a winner. And so the phrase “computer, pick a winner” was born.

“Computer, pick a winner!”

Things soon evolved and the internet was born…

As such, the format changed in the late 90’s or early noughties, with the live “computer pick a winner” format ceased — telephone and postcard entry were the options. This was soon followed by premium rate sms and eventually online entry being introduced as a free alternative to the premium rate numbers. The only real “difficulty” in entering these earlier itv competitions was making sure you are watching the TV at the right time in order to get the question….because they did not publish the question on the itv.com website, nor did they repeat the question on the phone lines or online. Sometimes the competitions were ran as prize draws and there was no question/ answer.

Similar to today, ITV competitions run for various lengths of times, ranging from a few days to a few weeks, there are no instant win games however they did publish lists of winners.

ITV Competitions Questions

The questions were always very easy and multiple choice A simple example would be What is the capital city of France? A) Paris B) London C) Dublin.

The difficulty was rarely knowing the answer, but rather knowing the question! Basically, if you missed any of your favourite itv shows you would miss the question and you wouldn’t be able to answer for your chance to win money and great prizes.

If this system ever returns, TVComp.UK will always make sure we share the question with you.
