New 2015 Quiz Show ‘Rebound’ Comes to ITV.
Who hosts Rebound on ITV?
Airing in The Chase’s usual 5:00pm weekday slot and starting on ITV on Monday the 17th of August, 2015, new quiz show ‘Rebound’ is hosted by Sean Fletcher.

Prior to landing this brand-new presenting role, the 41-year-old was best known as one of the hosts of ITV’s breakfast news programme, Good Morning Britain. There he’s joined by Susanna Reid, Charlotte Hawkins and Ben Shephard. The ex-rugby union winger will be hoping his new show enjoys similar levels of success to Ben’s game show ‘Tipping Point’.
Prior to appearing on GMB, Fletcher also worked as a sports correspondent and presenter for BBC News. Born in the USA, Sean grew up partly in England and partly in Zimbabwe.
Requiring quick thinking and a good general knowledge, Rebound contestants go head-to-head as they attempt to make it to the final for a chance of winning some serious prize money. This first series is scheduled to run for ten 60-minute episodes. Presumably if the show proves popular enough, ITV will then commission a second, longer season from production company FremantleMedia.
With the popularity of The Chase and rival BBC quiz Pointless, Rebound will likely have to generate strong viewing figures if it’s to secure a second season.
