Weakest Link Celebrity Special for BBC Children in Need

The celebrities taking part in the return of The Weakest Link have been revealed.

The Queen of Mean, Anne Robinson will return for a Special Celebrity Edition of the Weakest Link for BBC Children in Need later this month.

Seven brave celebrities including Actor John Thomson, Love Island winner Kem Cetinay, Chef Rosemary Shrager, Actress Chizzy Akudolu, Columnist Giles Coren and Presenters Rylan Clark-Neal and Maya Jama have been confirmed for the line up.

They will face the wrath of Anne as they work as a team and attempt to answer a series of general knowledge questions to win up to £15,000 for the charity. However, only one can win, six will leave with nothing as round by round their teammates vote them the weakest link.

Ahead of the episode, John Thomson said: “I’m thrilled to be doing The Weakest Link and never thought I’d have the opportunity.

"I relish general knowledge game shows and have a pretty impressive track record, plus it’s all for BBC Children in Need, win win! “

Maya Jama added: “Looks like I’ll be spending my weekend cramming in some last-minute revision as I’ll be joining Anne Robinson next week on The Weakest Link… goodbye”

Kem Cetinay commented: “I can’t believe I will be part of the Weakest Link Special for BBC Children in Need.

"The money raised will be going to such a good cause so I was honoured to be asked to take part.

"I’m not sure I will be very good, but I am going to try my best and hope I’m not the weakest link!”.

Giles Coren said: "I am super excited to be taking part in the Weakest Link although it will be a bit boring for me from a competitive point of view as I know everything and therefore can't possibly lose."
