Seann Walsh to host Netflix game show Flinch

Share article:

Seann Walsh is to host a new Netflix game show.

The former "Strictly Come Dancing" contestant - who caused controversy on last year's series when he was caught kissing his married pro partner Katya Jones - will front "Flinch", in which contestants face electrocution, or having their "fingers snapped" by mousetraps if they make a quick, nervous movement.

Kieran Doherty, the show's co-executive producer said: "There's only one rule in "Flinch": do not flinch. If you do, terrible things will happen to you.

"By "terrible", I mean you might get electrocuted, have your fingers snapped by mousetraps, or be slapped repeatedly in the face by two ginger farmhands. That sort of thing.

"Our games involved animals, water, children, washing machines, cattle prods and giant tractor tyres."

The game show is set on an abandoned farm in Northern Ireland, and the producers were confident they were onto a winner if they heard the gallery laughing at certain segments.

Kieran added to Broadcast: "The best part of the whole shoot was listening to the gallery and crew laughing as the games played out.

"That's how we knew we had something. It was too cold to make a phone call outdoors yet people were still laughing."

The show sees Seann and his fellow presenters Desiree Burch and Lloyd Griffiths pick people to represent them in a game, but if their chosen contestants flinch then both them and the hosts are forced to face the consequences.

"Flinch" begins on Netflix on May 3rd.
