Gassed Up: Celebrity line up revealed for new high octane BBC Three series


Celebrities will face off against rapper Mist in a series of high octane challenges for a new BBC Three show.

Mobo award winning musician and Brummie petrolhead Mist will star in new six-part series Gassed Up.

Each episode will see him go head to head in a high octane challenge against a celebrity – supported by expert driver and Drift Queen Becky Evans and pro BMXer, prankster Ryan Taylor and Supercar Dealer Rob Kelly.

Mentored and judged by specialists from the scene, Mist and his guests will learn the tricks of the trade, equipping them to create and commandeer crazy vehicles, leading to an ultimate head to head track challenge.

Celebs stepping up to the plate will include double Olympic gold medallist boxer Nicola Adams OBE, comedian and TV presenter Joel Dommett and Grammy nominated songwriter and footballer Chelcee Grimes.

They’ll be joined by TV personality and entrepreneur Spencer Matthews, grime MC and TV presenter Big Narstie and actor Ryan Thomas.

A start date for the new series is to be announced. BBC Three returns to TV on 1 February 2022.

Nicola Adams OBE said: “I am a big adrenaline junkie so becoming a drone expert and taking on Mist and Ryan in the ultimate game of hide and seek for this episode of Gassed Up was epic! Watch out BBC Three…you’ve never seen a show like this!”

Chelcee Grimes commented: “Gassed Up is something so different, and for me such a great experience. From where I started to where I finished it was worlds apart and I’m excited to see all the other celebrities to see how they got on.

“Also the viewers should watch just for Bex and Mist because they are just the best duo to be around and I learned so much in such a short time! I can definitely say after the whole experience I’m now well and truly, GASSED UP!!!!”

Spencer Matthews quipped: “Vin Diesel wasn’t available for BBC Three’s Gassed Up so naturally I stepped up.”

Big Narstie enthused: “If you like cars, this is the show for you. If you don’t like cars, that’s your business.”

Ryan Thomas said: “I loved getting the opportunity to take on Mist in Gassed Up for BBC Three, and on his home turf no less! Audiences can expect drifting, donuts and general chaos as we go head to head – I can’t wait for everyone to see this brilliant new series. Expect big stakes, big energy, big competition and big laughs.”

Speaking about fronting the series, Mist said: “Cars and driving are a passion of mine and it’s a privilege to be working with the BBC on Gassed Up. I’m letting everyone know, you’re about to experience something you’ve never experienced before.

“Forget whatever gassed up you think you’ve done in your lifetime because I’m about to take it to a new level. Gassed up business.”
