The show will see a mixture of great contestants, celebrity guests and laugh out loud moments.

Michael McIntyre says: “I am thrilled to be hosting a show that does reinvent the wheel! Contestants will be competing to win big money, celebrity experts will have their knowledge put the test, and I will desperately be trying to avoid too many puns. I simply can’t wait to get behind the wheel, I’m dizzy with excitement!”

Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning, says: “Michael is the perfect ringmaster for this unique game that will get celebrities in a right old spin and everyone at home playing along.”

Dan Baldwin, Managing Director Hungry McBear, says: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Michael and the BBC on The Wheel. Think of the most exciting funfair ride, put the world’s best comedian at the centre of it and throw in a collection of brilliant celebrity experts… welcome to The Wheel. Truly amazing fun, laughter and tension for the whole family.”

The Wheel will have 10 episodes with each lasting 60 minutes but will there be a Christmas special? We’re hoping so but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. We will update this page as soon as there is any further information.
