Simon Cowell is returning to British TV with a talent show with a difference.

Walk The Line is a new format being described as a “high octane musical game show”.

It will feature Simon on a judging panel giving away “life-changing” sums of money.

The top two acts in each show must choose whether to take a cash prize or risk playing on.

If they play on and top the leaderboard, they will progress to the next show, where they will face a different set of performers. The prize gets bigger the longer the series goes on.

Simon, 61, has been absent from UK screens since breaking his back in August last year.

He said: “I am thrilled to be working with Lifted Entertainment and ITV on this new project… It’s the kind of decision that will have viewers on the edge of their seats – real event TV.

“I’m excited at giving musical talent the opportunity to transform their lives like never before.”

The six-episode series is due to be screened this year. It will feature all kinds of musical acts from soloists and duos to bands and choirs.

Simon hopes to sell the new format around the world.
