Grant Denyer is back! The host of Family Feud Australia is returning to TV after a (very) short-lived break.

The beloved presenter scored an exciting new role on Game of Games, after Family Feud Australia was 'rested' by Network Ten earlier this year.

The 2018 TV WEEK Gold Logie winner is hosting the Australian version of Game of Games, which began in the US as a spin-off of the game segments on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Grant Denyer hosts Game of Games.

The smash-hit show will see contestants answering questions under pressure, manoeuvring through obstacles and facing gigantic plunges into the unknown.

The contestants will put their bodies – and their dignity – on the line for their shot at the cash prize.

Our first look at the new series was released by Network Ten overnight, and shares a glimpse of what's in store for viewers.

Despite his sadness over the end of Family Feud Australia, Grant is excited for his next chapter.

"I'm hungry and excited about this new project," Grant, 40, tells TV WEEK.

"Something new and bright comes along in moments when doors close," he says.

"Ten has been a wonderful family to be part of. They want to continue making fun television."

Game of Games is coming soon to Ten and Win Network. Stay tuned for a premiere date!
