ITV’s premiere episode of The Million Pound Cube suffered a technical issue, as the show’s sound mysteriously disappeared.

Presented by This Morning favourite Phillip Schofield, tonight’s (October 17) opener was a special celebrity edition featuring comedians Jason Manford and Mo Gilligan.

Just as things were being wrapped up, though, the volume randomly decreased before cutting out completely for several seconds.

Over on Twitter, the viewing public shared their collective confusion as the ITV sound waves faltered.

“Oh so into the cube. But @ITV sort the sound out,” posted one individual, before two more added: “Has anyone else’s sound just gone?” and “that was so tense that even the sound has gone”.

Of course, the broadcaster managed to sort it out fairly quickly and Schofe’s voice returned to soothe everyone’s worries. The continuity announcer even apologised at the end of the show, too.

Meanwhile, Jason (helped by brother Stephen) managed to bag himself an enormous £100,000 for his chosen charities.

Mo, who cracked us up on Celebrity Gogglebox earlier this year, experienced a somewhat tense time through the competition, but still took home £10,000 for charity with the help of his friend, actor David Ajao.

Mo tweeted along with the show, saying it was “too funny” watching the Cube challenges back and that he was pleased they left with money for their chosen charities, 100 Black Men and Albrighton Community Centre.

Jason also thanked viewers for their “lovely and supportive messages” and shared his joy at hanging out with his brother, and “raising much needed money for two wonderful charities”.

The Manford brothers were raising money for the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust and the Theatre Artists Fund.
