    Tipping Point is set to return to screens after being replaced by Deal or No Deal earlier this year.

    However, the reboot appears to be missing from ITV's schedule and in its place is Tipping Point. The show, which will be hosted by presenter Ben Shephard, will make its comeback on Monday 18th December at 4pm.

    This will then be followed by The Chase which will air at its usual time of 5pm. ITV previously announced that Deal Or No Deal would return to screens in November.

    The previous series used to be hosted by Noel Edmonds on Channel 4, but returned on ITV and presented by Stephen Mulhern. Talking to What To Watch Stephen spoke about his new role and said: "This is the dream job.

    "I loved the original series; I’d run home to watch it every day. Deal or No Deal is the perfect game show as it’s a simple format that delivers everything: jeopardy, happiness, sadness, excitement, intrigue and, overall, it’s a very heart-warming show. It ticks every box… literally!"

    He also revealed whether or not he was nervous about taking over the show from Noel Edmonds. "Well, listen to this… I was doing one of my magic shows live on stage.

    "As I finished a trick, all I could hear was this big voice shout: 'Hello'. In the distance, I can see what looked like Lord of the Rings character Gandalf walking towards the stage. I'm literally freaked out thinking: 'What is going on?' As he got closer, the voice said: 'Let me ask you a big question. Deal or No Deal?' He then pulled off his mask… It was Noel Edmonds!"

    Stephen also revealed some words that Noel had shared with him, 'I had 10 glorious years on Deal or No Deal, I met my wife on the show and it changed my life. They've picked the best person for the job. You are one of our brightest stars, so you've got my seal of approval.'"
