A real-life Squid Game is reportedly coming to the UK and, apparently, challengers will have to ‘sign a medical disclosure’ if they want to enter.
The popular Netflix show is now being turned into an event that will see up to 40 people compete in a series of challenges inspired by the hit drama – all without the threat of death at the end.
To make it as authentic as possible, competitors will be kitted out in overalls, compete in both physical and mental challenges, and be in for the chance of winning a cash prize of around £500.

It’s believed that all contestants will be picked up in a coach somewhere around the northwest of England. They will then be driven to a remote spot.
The event, which is being hosted by Universal Ents, promises an experience as ‘riveting at the games’ with an entry cost of £45.
Creative director, Max Fox, commented: “We want to make sure our experiences are safe, but still as riveting as the games seen on the Netflix smash Squid Game, but due to the violent nature of the hit show, we want to be cautious that the events don’t attract unstable people.
“This is a pain-free experience. There will be no paintballs, guns or otherwise, but don’t be afraid of getting wet.
“We want to make the games as realistic as possible, without the risk of injury. Some of our games you won’t have seen before, but there needs to be an element of surprise and mystery so people really don’t know what they’re letting themselves in for.”
