What Is The Splat! Show?
The Splat! Show was launched in September 2004 and has grown steadily over the years into what it is today. We have worked with countless participants over the years and we hope you join us for a shoot.
The Splat! Show is staged as a messy game show with our Gunge Tank. This format was popular on mainstream TV during the 90’s and early 2000’s but has since faded off our TV screens. We decided to bring the format back for the modern, internet focused era and world wide audience.
The Splat! Show content is highly influenced by the following TV shows which aired during the 1990s and early 2000s.
- Noel’s House Party (BBC late 1980s to early 2000s)
- Get Your Own Back (BBC 1990s to early 2000s)
- Tiswas (ITV late 1970s)
- Ministry Of Mayhem (ITV early 2000s)
- And many more (just “Gunge” or “Gunge Tank” on YouTube).
All of the shows mentioned and highlighted above could be viewed by any age group and is what we base the Splat! Show on.
We have worked with some high profile guests including X-Factor’s Sam Callahan (pictured below), TV, Film Producer, Director and Actor Marc Zammit and most recently Megan from the 2023 season of the BBC Apprentice. You don’t need to have a high profile to work with us but we wanted to show that we have been trusted with guests who hold a public image.
Our shows would be nothing without our guests and their unique personalities. If you take yourself too seriously, then you can stop reading now. This shoot is not for you. But if you want to experience a different and very fun shoot and connect with our wide audience then we would love to work with you.
Please continue to read this page for more information about our shoots.

The short answer is that The Splat! Show and our content can be enjoyed by anyone.
We try to make sure our show is accessible to as many people as possible so this means we have strict content policies when producing The Splat! Show as not to offend of alienate anyone.
There is no explicit adult content, excessive bad language (brief use is fine) or content that would be considered vulgar or offensive to the viewer or participant portrayed in our content which you will find on this website.
Our content and website is targeted to as many people people as possible through various promotional activity on our website and through our social media channels. It is in our interest to grow and build on our audience.
We are now approaching our 20th year of operations. We would have not lasted this long if we did not look after our participants.
Our content is distributed via our website to people all over the world and we cannot control who views our content. We have found that some of our audience may have a fetish for certain elements featured in our content. Our content is not created just for these audiences and people can enjoy our content for many different reasons which is unique to them.

Tell Me About A Typical Shoot
If you agree to take part in a Splat! Show Shoot (and we hope you do) and work with us then our shoots mostly follow the same format.
We have an extensive duty of care framework in place that covers pre-shoot, shoot and post-shoot so we are doing right by you at all times. This has already started if you we have made contact with you about working with us. We document every stage of our casting process with each potential participant to make sure we are doing our best by our them and that they have all the information about us and our shoots.
When you arrive you will be greeted by Pete, Rob or James who will then show you around the shooting environment. Our shoots take place in a residential property with a room converted into studio space where the shoot takes place.
A shoot normally features 5-7 segments that vary in length, normally between 10-20 minutes per segment. If this is your first shoot with us we will talk you through our health and safety protocols and then ensure you are ok with everything before we start shooting. The shoot will consist of an interview segment followed by game segments such as quizzes and maybe a few physical challenges.
The Gunge: The gunge we use at our shoots is made for what we use it for, we do not make it ourselves and is the actual stuff used on TV shows from all those years ago. It’s non toxic, safe and completely odourless. It washes off with ease and will not stain skin or hair. The Gunge is warm too for your comfort.
Cleaning facilities are on site and are secure for your privacy. No cameras or phones are permitted in the bathroom under any circumstances. You are welcome to inspect the changing area and bathroom before a shoot if you wish to ensure it meets your privacy standards. We take the wellbeing of all our participants seriously. The only cameras used for shoot production are located in the studio room. There are two security cameras that are always running downstairs for security. No other cameras are on the property.
We kindly ask that you do not store or use your own phone or camera in the bathroom for privacy reasons. Please store them with your belongings which will be stored securely in another room while the shoot takes place. The room where you store any personal belongings is covered by our security cameras mentioned above.
Shoots last three to four hours on average but can vary.
We have been running our shoots for over 20 years now and we always make sure you are taken care of and treated with respect at all times. We encourage questions at all times. Our shoots are run and in an open and relaxed manner and our participants wellbeing is our top priority at all times.

How Much Do We Pay & Other Benefits
All our shoots are paid. We don’t ask you to work for us for free or anything else in return.
Our pay rates will be discussed with you during the casting process but we offer good rates for your time.
If you connect with our audience and your content is popular then we might ask you to come back for another shoot. This is where we can look into increasing our standard pay if it matches the demand from our viewers.
There is also the chance of regular work with us if you are really popular. Our Splat! Stars are an example of this. Guests who perform and connect well with our viewers can get regular work with us and pay may increase with each shoot, this again is discussed on a case by case basis.
Appearing on The Splat! Show may increase your profile, whether it be on social media or by other means. It is entirely up to you if you want to publicise your time on The Splat! Show but generally we don’t offer payment for you to do this. It may increase your chances of coming back for other shoots and projects with us if you promote your own content via your social media channels.
If you are a social media influencer or star and make your own content then appearing on our show will give you the opportunity to introduce your content to our audience and grow your own following and audience.
Finally, we want you to have fun! Our shoot are completely different to what you may have done before.
Our Duty Of Care To You
We pride ourselves on maininting good relationships with all participants who appear on The Splat! Show. Before, during and after a shoot.
We encourage questions and feedback at all times throughout a shoot. We will also check in with you before we shoot anything to ensure you completely understand what is happening. If at any point you are feeling unsure about something, don’t feel comfortable about something then please let us know. We will understand and we will do our best to sort out any issues raised.
You will be required to sign a release form at the end of the shoot so we can legally release any content in which you appear. This is a legal document which states you have given us legal consent to release the content in which you appear on our website. We never ask you to sign a release before the shoot has taken place. We keep all release forms secure and on file and you can ask to see these at anytime after a shoot.
You do not have to use your real name. We generally only display first names in our content unless you want us to use your real name. Some of our higher profile participants (such as our celebrity participants) want us to use their full names for example. This is up to you but generally we only use your first name or a fake name. This will be discussed with you as part of our duty of care procedures.
We document our duty of care procedures. These are mainly for our benefit so we make sure we are doing our best by you. These are also kept secure and on file and are regularly review and updated.
We never hold participants to contract. While our release forms allow us to release any content in which you may appear, we understand that your life can and does change. If you want to have any content removed from our website, you can let us know and we will start the process to remove any content in which you appear. If your content is new and has just been released, you may have to wait a few months for your show to be removed so we can recoup costs associated with content creation.
Our Duty Of Care extends post shoot. You are free to contact us at any point after you have finished a shoot with us for any reason.
You will be treated with respect at all times. We want you to have fun and enjoy your time with us.
