Talking Telephone Numbers was a British game show that was produced by Celador and Carlton and aired on ITV from 28 February 1994 to 22 December 1997. It was originally hosted by Phillip Schofield and Emma Forbes, and later by Claudia Winkleman. Cash Peters also appeared in filmed inserts during the first series.


The programme featured five games, each designed to generate a number. These numbers were combined towards the end of the programme to form a five-digit code. Viewers with telephone numbers where the last 5 digits matched the code could then phone in to try to win a cash prize.
