Richard Osman, Endemol producer and host of gameshow Pointless, told the Metro newspaper that Hugill was the banker in a wide-ranging interview.

It has long been a rumour among fans of the quiz show that Hugill - who is best known for playing cop Alan McKenna on Coronation Street between 1996 and 1997 - was the banker.

Osman was asked how new show Two Tribes came about, and told the Metro: “[It] was an idea that Glenn Hugill - the Banker on Deal or No Deal - and I had been thinking about for a long time”.

Hugill also presented two series of Channel 5 show The Mole.
