The British version of the popular American GameShow ''FamilyFeud''. It is very similar in format to the American version, and almost as long-lasting. It was re-named because BobMonkhouse thought that "feud" sounded too aggressive.
It was originally presented by Bob Monkhouse from 1980-83, when Max Bygraves took over. After taking a hiatus in 1986, the show returned in June 1987 and gained its most famous host, Les Dennis, who would host until it ended in 2002. Andy Collins hosted a short-lived daytime version in 2002 as well, and Vernon Kay has hosted the CelebrityEdition since 2006.
One of the most famous bloopers from this version is the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2AWKfMvDtw "turkey" incident]], where a contestant gives "Turkey" for three consecutive answers in the show's equivalent of Fast Money.
!!GameShow Tropes in use:
* BonusRound: "Big Money", played identically to the ''Feud'''s Fast Money round, but with one addition: any family that claimed all five #1 answers won a car. Reaching 200 points wins the top cash prize; anything less won £2 a point.
* LosingHorns: The distinctive "EHH-''URHH!''" sound when a wrong answer is given, which has achieved MemeticMutation in the UK and is often imitated when someone makes an EpicFail in a conversation. [[invoked]]
* CelebrityEdition: ''All-Star Family Fortunes''.
** TheAnnouncer: Steven Rhodes (1987-99), Peter Dickson (2000-01/2006-Present), and Roger Tilling (2002).
** GameShowHost: Bob Monkhouse, Max Bygraves, Les Dennis, Andy Collins, Vernon Kay.
** StudioAudience: Surveyed for the questions.
* ProgressiveJackpot: From series 2 through 7--Series 2 and 3 had the Big Money start at £1,000, and increased by £500 each week until it was won or it reached £2,500. In Series 4, 5, and 6, the Big Money limit was £3,000. In series 7, Big Money started at £1,000, and increased by that much until it reached £3,000.
* SoundProofBooth: As in the American version, the second contestant wears noise-canceling headphones while the first one plays Big Money.
!!This show provides examples of:
* BrianBlessed: Appeared as a contestant on the CelebrityEdition.
* CatchPhrase: "(Our) survey said", as in the American version.
** If a contestant gave a particularly stupid answer, Les Dennis would sometimes say "If that answer's there, I'll give you the money meself!" Humorously, this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sqq9zZR0fHI&t=1m16s backfired]] at least once.
* ClipShow: "Family ''Mis''fortunes"
* CompanionCube: The computer that ran the show's electronic board was named Mr. Babbage. It was replaced with a more traditional scoreboard when Les Dennis took over, but quickly reverted to Mr. Babbage after only a few episodes.
* DeadpanSnarker: Les Dennis.
* DifficultyByRegion: In some versions, in order to win the top prize in Fast Money, not only do the two players have to collectively score at least 200 points, they need to also get all of the top answers.
* EpicFail: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdwOyT9Erso This]] poor bastard somehow managed to get zero points on all five questions in the fast money round.
* ForeignRemake: One of the more notable instances.
* LongRunners: The show ran uninterrupted from 1987-2002.
* RearrangeTheSong: The theme song has had several arrangements.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: "Name a way you would toast someone." The buzz-in response given was [[FromACertainPointOfView "Over a fire."]] Les promised to give the contestant the money out of his own pocket if it was up there. It ''was'' (though it came up "Grill" and was worth 12), and he promised to pay her £12.
* UnCanceled: The show ended in 1985 and was brought back in 1987.
** Arguably, the current reincarnation as ''All Star Family Fortunes'' after a few years' hiatus may also count.
