With costs and bills taken off, Gordon’s firm has a reported bottom line of £2.2million, a significant increase from £1.3million in 2018.

Books filed to Companies House are said to confirm the company has staff of eight people.  

Gordon’s firm makes ITV documentary series The Savoy about life at the luxurious London hotel where the star has a restaurant. 

Bank Balance is described as ‘a high-stakes, high-pressure, game show where contestants need both knowledge and nerves to succeed, where they can literally build themselves a fortune or see it come crashing down in an instant’.

TV bosses are said to be making strict background checks on contestants applying for the series, which will be filmed in December.  

The  show will feature two people playing together for a cash prize and contestants must reportedly prove they are from the same household with bank statements or bills to comply with Covid-19 rules. 

Contestants will also be subjected to background checks from the government’s Disclosure and Barring Service to see if any applicants have a rap sheet.

A source told the publication: ‘It’s probably not going to be an issue if someone has a conviction for shoplifting but the last thing the show needs is a convicted sex offender scooping the top prize.’ 

Profits: With costs and bills taken off, Gordon's firm has a reported bottom line of £2.2million, a significant increase from £1.3million in 2018

Gordon said of the series: ‘It is such an intense game with so much jeopardy to win big and lose even bigger, where the difference between failure and success is always in the balance. 

‘I’m so happy to be working with the fantastic team at the BBC and cannot wait to get in the studio and start stacking those gold bars!’ 

Kate Phillips, Controller of Entertainment Commissioning at the BBS said in a statement: ‘It’s fantastic to have Gordon on board hosting this new prime time game show. It promises to test nerve, accuracy and knowledge as well as entertain you.’
