Grant Denyer has officially signed on to host gameshow Game Of Games coming to TEN and WIN later this year.
The US version of the show is currently hosted by Ellen DeGeneres and includes 'super-sized' versions of games that have appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Audience members are pulled from the crowd and must go through massive obstacles while answering questions within a time limit to score a cash prize.
Denyer said he was thrilled to be part of the Aussie version.
"Ellen is an idol of mine, so to land this opportunity makes me so excited I’m dizzy! Game Of Games is a smash hit in America. It’s wildly fun and something completely brand new and different for Australia. I can’t wait to step on set and run amuck with this," he said in a statement.
"Of course Ellen is famous for causing havoc with her crazy studio games, and Game Of Games is the mother of them all. A next level stadium spectacular, with the ridiculousness cranked up to eleven. Think, the game ‘Mousetrap’ but with real humans. That level of crazy! It’s super fun & Aussies are gonna love it.”
Game Of Games will premiere on TEN and WIN Network later this year.
