How to apply for Moneybags on Channel 4 | The Sun

CHANNEL 4'S Moneybags is back for another series, with host Craig Charles at the helm.

As the show offers a HUGE cash prize, viewers often wonder how they can apply to be on the show themselves.

How to apply for Moneybags

To be eligible to take part in Moneybags, contestants must be over the age of 18 and have the legal right to live in the UK for the duration of filming.

Sadly the show has stopped taking applications at this time, as the closing date for season 2 was June 14, 2022.

Filming for the new series took place back in July 2022.

Moneybags kicks off on Channel 4 TODAY (August 15, 2022) at 5pm, and continues at the same time on weekdays.

What can you win on Moneybags?

Moneybags is a high-stakes quiz that tests contestants’ ability to think quickly as they answer each question by grabbing the moneybag with the correct answer as it passes along a conveyor belt in front of them.

Those who get the right answer earn that bag’s value, which can be anything from £1,000 to £100,000.
