Meet the contestants on Rise and Fall: From semi-professional footballer to GB News regular and Four Rooms expert

Sydney, Matt, Connor, Sophie, Prince, Joanna, Jefrey, Ramona, Cheryl, Edmund, Rishika, Jack, Ali, Rachel, Marina, James on Rise and Fall

A gripping new gameshow is hitting our screens in a matter of hours, produced by the team behind The Traitors and fronted by Greg James.

Rise and Fall sees 16 contestants from all backgrounds starting off as equals, but soon finding themselves in positions of power as Rulers or as part of the powerless, the Grafters.

While those in charge live in a lavish penthouse, their workers must survive in basic conditions in the basement, but anyone can rise and anyone can fall.

Although the Grafters are trying to increase the prize pot, it will be one Ruler who walks away with all the money at the end, and who changes status will all be down to the other players.

Hooked already? So are we, and here’s everything you need to know about the contestants taking part.
