One of the most popular TV shows of the 90’s is set to make a comeback!
There are so many classic TV shows that deserve to make a comeback in this day and age. During the 90s’ we were blessed with legendary shows like; The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, SMTV Live and Live And Kicking to name a few and all of which have yet to make a return for the millennial market.
However, some classic shows have returned to our screens, including The Crystal Maze, now hosted by the brilliant Richard Ayoade, and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, again with new host Jeremy Clarkson taking Chris Tarrant’s place in the hot seat.
Well, now there is another show to add to the list and without giving away too much, it takes place in the rarest of TV studio settings: a supermarket!
Yes, the legendary Super Market Sweep is making a much-needed comeback and will be hosted by TV Presenter, Rylan Clark-Neal.
Fans of the original will know that Rylan has some big shoes to fill, with the classic show originally hosted by the one and only, Dale Winton, who sadly passed away last year at the age of 62.
Winton possessed the rare ability to truly make the show ‘his’ and hosted the family game show for 8 series, from 1993-2001, with Dale, and the show also making a brief comeback in 2007.
Rylan announced the show would be making a return to our screens on his Twitter, sharing the good news to his 1.5m followers.

The all-new Super Market Sweep will return to ITV2 and speaking of the show’s comeback, ITV’s Paul Mortimer said: “We’re so pleased to be working with Thames on this re-booted version of the ITV classic game show,”
It’s an exciting time for Rylan, 30, as he also announced yesterday that he will be hosting the new fashion makeover show, You Are What You Wear, on BBC1.
The return of Supermarket Sweep follows more good news for fans of classic TV shows, with news of the new reboot coming only a few weeks after Ainsley Harriot announced that he was in talks to bring Ready, Steady, Cook back to our screens.
It’s not just classic game shows that are making a comeback either, as James Corden also recently announced that the beloved British sitcom, Gavin & Stacey will be making a return for hour-long Christmas special.
