Talking Telephone Numbers is a British game show that aired on ITV from 28 February 1994 to 22 December 1997 and was hosted by Phillip Schofield and initially Emma Forbes, who was later replaced by Claudia Winkleman.


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.
