CelebAbility will return to ITV2 for a second series in 2018

CelebAbility will return to ITV2 for a second series later this year.


After a successful first series last year, the second run will be an extended run of 8 episodes.

Hosted by the voice of Love Island, Scottish stand-up comedian Iain Stirling who is joined again by his trusted adjudicator Marek Larwood.

Hoping to win £5,000, a group of friends will go head to head with celebrities in a series of uniquely crazy rounds. All of which are based on the unusual skill or ability that the celebrities believe they naturally possess.

CelebAbility highlights from the first series included MiC’s Stephanie Pratt reading a dog’s mind, Olympic Medal winning gymnast Louis Smith attempting to eat a poppadum as quietly as possible and “always lucky” Joey Essex picking the right pigeon to be pooped on.

Other guests included Laura Whitmore, Vicky Pattison, Pete Wicks, Maya Jama, Keith Duffy, Ed Gamble, Vogue Williams and Megan McKenna.

Saskia Schuster, ITV’s Comedy Controller said: “We are delighted that CelebAbility is back. This time round it’s going to get even more silly and definitely more competitive, so good luck to Iain Stirling and Marek Larwood as they try to keep order in the studio…let the battle begin.”

“CelebAbility is back and I cannot wait! Celebrities doing tasks against the members of the public – who will come out on top?” added host Iain Stirling.

Michael Kelpie, Managing Director of programme makers Potato said: “We had an absolute ball making CelebAbility last year and then it turned out to be ITV2’s highest rating new series of 2017. Hurrah!


“We can’t wait to discover what hidden talents can be unearthed through extensive, in-depth and probing research of our nation’s best-loved celebrities, get them in the studio with Iain & Marek and let the fun begin.”

CelebAbility will air on ITV2 later this year.
