If they push their luck too far, they’ll crash out of the game and lose it all.
Speaking about the limitless prize money, Ant told MailOnline: ‘We did worry that we were going to bankrupt ITV.’
The dynamic duo say they have completely reinvented the rule book when creating the gameshow and it is unlike any other on the television.

Dec explained: ‘The great thing about this show is that the questions can’t really get harder because the answer to every question is a number, with a lot of TV shows, the further it goes on, the harder it gets.
‘And I find as a viewer, I can’t play along any more because I don’t have any idea, but the thing with Limitless Win is that all of the answers are numbers, so you can have a good stab at most of them. You might not get it exactly, but you might stay in the game.’
Contestants will have a limited number of lives which they can use if they get a question wrong.
