Alfonso Ribeiro will front new BBC game show "Money Tree".

The 47-year-old star is set to film a pilot of the show next week, and the programme has been compared to "Family Fortunes".

A show insider told The Sun's Bizarre TV column: "Alfonso is a TV icon and was a real hit in the UK when he appeared on "I'm A Celeb" back in 2013.

"He's got that real sense of comedic charm and effortless banter that is needed in a game show presenter, so BBC bosses thought he would be the perfect signing.

"He's filming a pilot next week but they are really hoping that it will hit the ground running and be turned into a full series.

The new programme will see families go head-to-head in seven rounds of general knowledge trivia and the first episode is being filmed next Thursday (18.10.18).

Last month, the "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" star - who portrayed Will Smith's nerdy cousin Carlton Banks on the long-running series and was known for his iconic dance in the series - reunited with his co-stars more than 20 years after the show went off the air.

He was joined by former castmates, Will, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Daphne Maxwell Reid and Joseph Marcell.
