Made by Thames, a Fremantle label and airing on BBC, Blankety Blank will return with 10 brand new episodes and will be once again be presented by Bradley Walsh.

Each episode will see a panel of six celebrities try to fill in the missing blanks over a series of rounds and help win some amazing prizes for contestants.

Fans of the show can expect lots of laughs for the whole family to enjoy and can look forward to the return of the distinctive theme tune, as well as the return of the iconic Blankety Blank cheque book and pen.

Bradley Walsh says: “I struggle to remember the last time I laughed as much as when I was filming Blankety Blank – so when they asked if I’d be up for doing a series, I jumped at the chance, I’m just so pleased I get to be a part of it. I stand on the shoulders of giants like Les Dawson and Sir Terry Wogan but I’m hoping to put my own stamp on the fantastically nostalgic show.”

Kate Phillips, Director of Entertainment at the BBC, says: “Blankety Blank has it all – ridiculous questions, unpredictable celebrities, bizarre prizes and, in Bradley a very funny and much loved host. I can’t wait for everyone to watch and start filling in those blanks!”

Amelia Brown, Managing Director of Thames, says: “To be able to team this legendary format with the legend that is Bradley Walsh in a series, is so exciting and a match made in heaven. We can’t wait to get into studio with Bradley and a host of brilliant panellists.”

Other Christmas specials are being announced with BBC confirming two Christmas specials of Call The Midwife, Channel 4 announcing The Abominable Snow Baby and Sky reveal A Boy Called Christmas will show over the festive season.
