Catchphrase could return to television for the first time in a decade.

ITV is in talks with the format's owner DRG to commission a pilot of the programme, Broadcast reports.

Northern Irish funnyman Roy Walker was the classic gameshow's original and best-known host, widely remembered for his lines, 'Say what you see', and, 'It's good but it's not right'.

Walker, who left in 1999, has previously stated his interest in hosting a revival. Nick Weir and Mark Curry fronted the programme for the last two years of its life.

Catchphrase, still repeated on digital channel Challenge, was popular for ITV on Saturday evenings during the latter half of the 1980s.

The show saw two contestants guess familiar idioms illustrated by a computer animation, often featuring an appearance from golden robot Mr Chips.

The pilot, if ordered, will be made by STV Productions.
