Quirky ITV gameshow The Cube – now known as The Million Pound Cube – made its big comeback after several years off-screens. The series hosted by This Morning and Dancing On Ice presenter Phillip Schofield sees contestants trying to complete a series of seemingly simple tasks in the hopes of winning a large cash prize. The Cube also featured a couple of celebrity episodes including one with comedian Jason Manford – but how much money did the actor manage to bag?

How much did Jason Manford win on The Cube?

Jason and his brother Stephen appeared on the launch show which aired on October 17.

They initially started off doing well but the pressure started to mount as they went further into the competition.

Among the tasks they had to do complete included one where they had to stand inside the outline of a shape while blindfolded.

Their family members nervously watched on as they took part in the show.

Jason and Stephen managed to get £100,00 which went to the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust and the Theatre Artists Fund.

Stephen said he wanted to stick with the amount they’d won rather than risking losing the lot.

However, the decision was ultimately down to Jason who was given the option to take on another task for £250,000.

The brothers deliberated but eventually, Jason said he was going to call it quits.

He said: “I’m still shaking from the last round. I don’t think I’ve got the dexterity to do it.”

Later, speaking about their performance, Jason: “We did it to the best we could do it.

“I guess if I could do it again there was one of the games that maybe I could have done instead of my brother but he probably feels the same.

“It’s like when you watch it on telly you always think you can do better than the people who are doing it.”

While Stephen added: “I hate saying this, but in my solo game I should have listened to Jason sooner. His strategy for the game was better than mine.”

Jason said he wanted to take part in The Cube because it was his “favourite show” and both he and sibling Stephen loved it.

He said: “It felt like something I could do, without requiring general knowledge, and it was for such a huge amount of money that could help a charity at this very difficult time.”

Stephen revealed he and his family had even recreated games from the show in their background, such was their love of The Cube.

ITV has been airing episodes of The Million Pound Cube all this week as members of the public taking part in the show.

Other stars participating in the series include stand-up comic Mo Gilligan and his actor friend David Ajao.

This evening (October 24) will see documentarian Stacey Dooley and her boyfriend and former Strictly Come Dancing professional Kevin Clifton taking part.

The Million Pound Cube made its return after six years and was shot during the pandemic in a largely empty studio without an audience.

The show features seven challenges with contestants having nine lives which they can use to complete these rounds.

The Million Pound Cube airs tonight on ITV at 9pm
