During the segment, eight players from the audience were invited to “come on down” to guess the prices of totally random items.

Some viewers were overjoyed by the nostalgic remake, which was previously hosted by Bruce Forsyth between 1995 and 2001, however, others couldn’t quite help but question whether the items were priced correctly.

What did viewers say?

Subsequently taking to Twitter, one wrote: “#AlanCarrsEpicGameshow where the [bleep] are you getting an LED kettle for £26? I want one at that price?!!”

Another said: “No way is cheap tin foil more expensive than own brand cereal – where are these people shopping?! #AlanCarrsEpicGameshow.”

Following their victory, Ruth revealed their winnings would be donated to the Alzheimer’s Society and broke down in tears.

Addressing the real reason behind Ruth’s tears, Eamonn later revealed: “Ruth got very emotional at the end of this and there are a number of reasons why she got very emotional. But let’s just say the overriding reason is that her father died from this awful condition, this awful disease.”
