Supermarket Sweep (changed to Dale’s Supermaket Sweep) was a UK game show. based on the American Supermarket Sweep TV show format.The game consists of three teams of two, each with a clock that starts with 60 seconds on it. The teams then attempt to add as much time to their clock by answering questions and riddles posed by host Dale Winton. The time they accumulate determines how long they have in the ‘Big Sweep’ round to run around a studio mock-up of a supermarket, collecting shopping items. The team with the shopping trolley filled with items of the most value wins the chance to enter the final ‘Super Sweep’ prize round. Within the game there were a number of rounds.
During The Big Sweep round the contestants enter the aisles, starting with the team with the most time on their clocks and followed by the other two teams according to their times. The aim of this round is to gain as much value in their trolleys as possible in order to go on to the £5,000 Super Sweep game (formerly £2,000). Various bonuses are available to boost their totals and there are penalties for dropped items. The team with the higher Big Sweep total (added with their sub total from bonuses and previous rounds) keeps their money and advances to the Super Sweep. The team have 60 seconds to find the £5,000 prize (formerly £2,000), by solving three clues. The first clue is given by Dale and time doesn’t start until the clue has been read. The team must find the item from the clue to get the next clue. The second clue leads the contestants to the final item, behind which the money is found.
