LEGO Masters: Channel 4’s game show based on LEGO back tonight
Channel 4’s new game show LEGO Masters continues tonight with contestants competing in rounds of difficult build challenges.
Eight competing pairs of all ages will have their design, originality and construction skills put to the test in a battle to be crowned LEGO MASTERS.
Hosted by DJ and TV presenter Melvin Odoom, each programme tests a wide array of disciplines from the playful to the technical to the unexpected and judging is led by Matthew Ashton, Vice President of Design for the LEGO Group.
Joining Matthew in each round will be an array of expert judges from the fields of engineering, art and design and guest celebrity LEGO fans including Richard Osman, Bill Bailey and Dara O’Briain.
In each programme, the teams who impress the most will progress to the next round until the finale, where just one pair will be crowned winners.
In the third episode tonight, nature is the theme this time as the remaining five teams take their construction skills into the great outdoors. The challenge is to create and install a spectacular brick display for a nature walk that will be transported to a woodland in Essex.
From plants, animals and insects to mythical creatures, the teams can create whatever they want, but it must be full of character, wow the judges, and fit seamlessly into the environment. So how do you integrate a Madagascan crocodile into the Essex countryside? And there’s a frantic hunt on for a missing chrysalis.
There’s also a quick-fire round to make as many miniature insects, birds and wild animals in 45 minutes, using no more than 15 bricks.
Joining The Lego Group’s Matthew Ashton as guest judges is one of the world’s leading brick animal artists Sean Kenney, and comedian Bill Bailey. Only three pairs will make it through to the final and continue their fight to be crowned Lego Masters.
Who will be on their way to becoming LEGO Masters?
LEGO Masters airs tonight at 8PM on Channel 4.
