The Chase star Paul Sinha has reportedly landed his very own primetime quiz show.

The quiz genius, 50, is said to have signed a new deal with ITV to host Paul Sinha's TV Showdown, which will see teams of celebrities go head-to-head over their knowledge of the small screen.

The broadcaster already has four shows - Tipping Point, The Chase, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? and Tenable - on its books, but according to The Sun, they are looking to add one more.

A source told the publication: 'There's an abundance of quiz shows on ITV already, but one just about telly hasn't been done in a while. This is a fresh take on a familiar format. 

'It’s like Telly Addicts meets Celebrity Juice, with the popular Paul Sinha at the helm. It won’t be as mad and crazy as Celebrity Juice, but it will have two teams of celeb guests going head to head.'

The TV insider went on to add: 'It’s being worked on at the moment and they hope it won’t be long before it’s on air. And it will be on the main ITV channel in a primetime slot.'

MailOnline have contacted representatives of Paul and ITV for further comment. 

Paul, aka 'The Sinnerman', has been part of The Chase line-up since 2011.

He joins other brainboxes Mark Labbett, Shaun Wallace, Jenny Ryan and Anne Hegerty, while Bradley Walsh is the host. 

Back in May, Paul declared 'f**k Parkinson's' as he shared a defiant post amid his health battle.

What is Parkinson's?

Parkinson's is a condition in which parts of the brain become progressively damaged

The three main symptoms are: involuntary shaking (tremor), slow movement, stiff and inflexible muscles

As the condition progresses, the symptoms of Parkinson's disease can get worse

Parkinson's disease doesn't directly cause people to die, but the condition can place great strain on the body
