Once again, Richard Ayoade will guide teams of 5 new celebrities through four very demanding zones. For the first time the show is set to debut ‘The Eastern Zone’, the first new games area since the show’s original run which began back on 15 February 1990.

A Christmas special has also been announced, although dates and times have not been confirmed, if we go by last years show it’s likely to air boxing day at 8pm.

Alongside the Futuristic, Aztec and Industrial Zones, the Eastern Zone is reportedly influenced by the historic art, architecture and monuments of East Asia. Featuring a lily pond, cherry blossom trees and ornate vases, the zone is made up of five games rooms featuring eight challenging new games for celebrity contestant teams.

Will these intrepid contestants find their way through a selection of imaginative games and complicated challenges to win a prize in the Crystal Dome?

We’re all looking forward to this year’s 12 new episodes especially the six celebrity specials in aid of Stand Up To Cancer and we can’t wait for more crystal collecting chaos again this year!
