The Heist (Sky One) Series begins on Friday 9 November

A show concept we have been looking forward to! The Heist is a robbery game-show where the contestants can win £250,000.

The catch? The ten contestants will have to steal the money from a security van, before hiding the sum in safe places - so it can't be found.

They will be tracked by a police team, and if captured - they'll be taken down for a talk with former Met Police detective Sue Hill. Though if the contestants manage to avoid the police, they will keep the cash!
