The Big Call was a game show that was created as a response to the National Lottery on the BBC.


Six members of the public challenged it out, with the help of the celebrity of their choice.

Main GameEdit

To start, each contestant would be asked a general knowledge question for their celebrity choice. Afterwards, each celebrity had to answer two questions correctly to get them and their punter to the next round. Once five celebrities managed to make it to the next round, the remaining team was eliminated. If any celebrity failed to give the required two answers, that team was automatically eliminated, and the remaining teams automatically advanced to the next round.

This process then repeated itself with one less team, and the contestants and celebrities alternated answering the questions in each new round.

When two teams were left, they were asked questions in a sudden death fashion similar to The Weakest Link. The winning team's contestant would advance to the final round.

Final Round: Pressure PointEdit

The winner had to choose between a guaranteed cash prize of £20,000 or 100,000 Lottery tickets chosen at different risk levels by the Big Call Professor. If the contestant chose the £20,000 cash prize, a phone-in viewer had the opportunity to win the 100,000 Lottery tickets by answering one final question, in which a correct answer won the tickets.
