Two families of four participate in a series of rounds for the chance to win prizes, including a family holiday. The children take the lead in the show rather than the parents. The rounds feature family members nominated for routines, dressing up as TV characters and trying to guess phrases based on clues given by grandmothers.[2] Celebrities appear in the show and may be dropped down a trapdoor depending on the prizes chosen by the contestants; these celebrities include those known for The X Factor, Coronation Street, and Britain's Got Talent.

Walsh described the show as "the most fun [he has] ever had on TV".[2] Christopher Stevens of Daily Mail gave the show 2 out of 5 stars, saying that the programme was "a disjointed mess" due to "Bradley, who is playing the part of spangly-suited gameshow host too hard."[3] The Guardian said that although the show "shouldn't work", it was well-suited to the presenter, calling Walsh "a virtuoso of amiable schtick".[4]
