Top Trumps

Top Trumps is a brand new series hosted by actor and presenter Robert Llewellyn and presenter Ashley Hames that brings the classic card game to life.

Top Trumps is a 10 x30min series, transmitting in the autumn, that offers a unique take on the timeless card game. Each week the two presenters go head-to-head as they look to outsmart each other in their personal fact finding missions.

Within each show the presenters immerse themselves in everything they’ll ever need to know about their chosen topic and then, as in the card game, they try to get one over each other with their incredible new found facts.

Through high octane experiences and credible experiments each presenter goes into every detail of their extreme machine to try and work out which facts will out-trump the other.

The series will see a whole host of extreme machines, including: Fire Engines; Rescue Rigs; Super Ships; Luxury Cars and Extreme ATV (All Terrain Vehicles).

Others being put to through the Top Trumps test are Super Helicopters; Super Yachts; Super Jets; Mammoth Earthmovers and Warships.

Five’s Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment, Ian Dunkley said: “It’s a really inventive and fun way of looking at some of the biggest and fastest machines around.”
