PREPARE to go wild in the aisles as Supermarket Sweep makes a welcome return to our screens.

Last on air in 2007, the 1990s gameshow, famously fronted by Dale Winton, will return to ITV2 with a nightly show that, while paying homage to the original, will also introduce new games, challenges and a brand-new host in the shape of Rylan Clark-Neal.

“I’ve always been a fan of Supermarket Sweep. I remember bunking off school just so that I could watch it,” he says, quick to profess his super fan status.

“I’ve been so privileged to host shows like Xtra Factor, Big Brother and I’m joining Strictly,” adds Clark-Neal, 30, who rose to fame on the ninth series of The X Factor. “I’ve been so lucky with the gifts of institutions that I have been able to join and either make my own or put my stamp on it. To be able to do it all again from scratch has been amazing.

“It’s the Supermarket Sweep you know and love,” promises Clark-Neal. “I know it’s a new era and this time the show is an hour long so we have lots of time to fill, but I was adamant that we couldn’t lose the warmth and fun of the original series. In the big sweep you want to get the highest value of products in your trolley to be in with a chance of getting to the final round... the super sweep. That’s where you can win £3,000 cash by finding hidden marked products and solving clues to find them.”

While Clark-Neal is yet to take to the aisles in a competitive sense, rest assured he is taking his store manager role very seriously.

“Rather than running around I am actually taking the mickey,” he says. “Like if I get a bit peckish then I’ll just walk down one of the aisles and pick up a packet of crisps or raid the pick n mix. The store is real, the products are real, so there’s everything there that I could possibly want.

“But what’s lovely about the show is that none of the food is going to waste. Instead of chucking it out we’ve been sending all the food to a local food bank and shelters. I really love the fact we are making sure there is absolutely no food wastage. We’ve even got bags for life, and that becomes a big thing within the show. I’m really proud of the fact that when the cameras stop rolling we are making a difference in people’s lives. How amazing is it that we can do that? So, I don’t feel quite as bad when I steal the odd chocolate bar.”

Supermarket Sweep returns on ITV2 today.
