What are the rules and prize in Netflix’s Cheat?

Cheat combines brains, wit, and straight-faced lying as four contestants compete in each episode, per the synopsis. Their knowledge is put to the test through three rounds, and sometimes they may have to bluff their way to the top without being eliminated. And that’s because there’s the potential to build a jackpot of over £50,000. The one thing they have to do, is not get caught.

Who are the Cheat hosts?

Taking on MC duties are British actors and television personalities Danny Dyer and Ellie Taylor. You may know Dyer from his work on coming-of-age drama Human Traffic, as well as BBC soap opera EastEnders. Taylor has appeared on a number of shows like comedy series 8 Out of 10 Cats and British reality series Snog Marry Avoid?. The talent is also known for her stand-up comedy, with one of her shows being a part of Comedians of the World on Netflix.
