Celebrity Tattletales was based on the American format Tattletales, where three celebrity couples competed to win money for their rooting sections. The show was axed after just three months on the air.


The game was played in two halves: in each half, ½ of the couples (all of the same sex) wore headphones and sat in an enclosed room on the left of the set, being viewed by television monitors while the other half sat behind the playing desk in front of the audience.

Each spouse in turn answered a multiple-choice question about their relationships. After all three spouse gave their answers, the isolated mates gave their own answers and if they matched, they won money for their rooting section. Each question had a pot of $60, with the money split between two or all three couples if they matched. If all three matched, they each scored $20; if two of the couples matched, they each scored $30; but if only one couple matched, that couple won the entire pot. If no couple made a match, the money was carried over into the next question. Six questions (three in each half) were asked with the roles reversed after the first round, and the final question was worth double ($120 to the only couple who matched, $60 for two couples, and $40 for all three).

All three "rooting sections" (one-third of the studio audience, divided into the colours of red, yellow and blue) divided the money their respective couples won for them. The couple with the most money at the end of the show won the game. Unlike in America, there was no bonus for the winning couple.
