1000 Heartbeats was a British daytime game show that aired on ITV which ran from 23 February 2015 to 15 January 2016 and was hosted by Vernon Kay. 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_0

Format 1000 Heartbeats_section_0

Wearing an electronic heart-rate counter and standing on a lighted circular platform known as "The Plate," a single contestant answers questions in order to win money over a total of seven rounds. 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_1

While a round is in progress, the contestant's heartbeats are continuously counted and deducted from an initial total of 1,000. 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_2

If the total reaches zero, the game ends immediately and the contestant is defeated and leaves empty-handed. 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_3

During gameplay, the contestant's heart rate is displayed on a monitor and relayed to a live string quartet playing the show's musical score; they adjust their tempo (beats per minute) to match the heart rate and maximise tension. 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_4

The contestant must give seven correct answers to complete Round 1, and the required number decreases by one for each subsequent round (six in Round 2, five in Round 3, etc.). 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_5

Each incorrect answer deducts 25 heartbeats (50 from Series 3 to present). 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_6

The contestant may change out a question by stepping off the Plate, at a cost of 100 beats (50 in Series 1). 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_7

Any correct answers given prior to stepping off are counted toward the number required to complete the round once play resumes. 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_8

Each completed round increases the contestant's winnings as follows: 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_9

  • Round 6 – £10,0001000 Heartbeats_item_0_5
  • Round 7 – £25,0001000 Heartbeats_item_0_6

At the start of each new round, the contestant is shown an example of the game to be played and may choose to "Cash Out" with the money banked to that point rather than play on. 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_10

In order to win the money, he/she must complete one final "Cashout Game." 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_11

The contestant is shown a series of true/false statements and must give five consecutive correct answers before running out of heartbeats. 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_12

Any incorrect response breaks the chain and deducts 25 beats (50 from Series 3 to present). 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_13

Completing the Cashout Game allows the contestant to leave with the accumulated money, but failing to complete it forfeits the entire bank. 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_14

The contestant may not step off the Plate during this game. 1000 Heartbeats_sentence_15
