Applications for the new episodes are open now.

Remaining true to the original format, the new revival keeps the well-loved theme tune as well as the Blankety Blank cheque book and pen prize.

Celebrities that featured have featured in recent episodes include Rylan Clark, Emma Willis, Desiree Burch, Sue Perkins, Anita Rani, Iain Stirling, Tess Daly, David Haye, Adil Ray, Jimmy Carr, Judi Love, Sue Perkins, Judy Murray, Craig Revel Horwood and Adjoa Andoh.

The new series promises another brilliant host of stars as well as offering a whole new collection of laugh out loud moments, which have helped to make Blankety Blank unmissable Saturday night TV.

Bradley Walsh said: “I tell you what, there isn’t a show quite like Blankety Blank – it’s absolutely brilliant fun from start to finish. The celebrities will come up to me after a record and tell me how much fun they had filming, but more importantly, so do the contestants.

“These wonderful people come on to the show wanting a great experience and boy do they get it – because let’s be honest, they’re not there for the prizes are they?!”

Charlie Irwin, Managing Director of Thames (a Fremantle label), added: “It’s been a huge privilege to be part of the team in charge of bringing Blankety Blank to new audiences. We are thrilled with how it’s been received and are so excited to make more for the BBC.

“We genuinely love this show and filming it is an absolute joy.”
