The Squid-inspired reality show goes as normal as you might think

according to Hollywood ReportersThis week, a small number of contestants reportedly required medical attention as cameras panned out in the real-life version of the popular “Red Light, Green Light” game. The anomalous cold snap affecting the UK, the country hosting the reality show, appears to have caused problems for some competitors, given the sub-zero temperatures.
