BBC One game show Catchpoint will return for a second series in 2020.

Catchpoint describes itself as "the very first physical game show" with contestants needing quick reflexes and brains in order to win a cash prize in the ultimate battle of brains and balls.

Following a successful debut series which aired earlier in 2019, the family-friendly game show that combines physical fun with a new and exciting question mechanic will once again be hosted by TV Presenter and Comedian Paddy McGuinness.

The series features contestants having to answer multiple-choice questions by catching balls.

In the so-called Catch Zone, large rectangular LED screens display the answers to each question that the players will face. Suspended above the Catch Zone are ten trapdoors - each containing a ball.

Only the trapdoor that is located directly above the correct answer screen will open and send a ball plummeting to the ground.

All the players must do is stand in front of the screen that they think is displaying the correct answer, press the button to release the ball and then catch the ball when it drops from the correct answer trapdoor.

Paddy McGuinness said: “Series one was a blast with some cracking contestants and I’m looking forward to getting caught up in the excitement once again.”

Zoë Tait, Executive Producer, added: “We’re delighted to be making a second series of Catchpoint and are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Paddy again on such a lively Saturday night show."

Kate Phillips, Controller Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC, commented: “Catchpoint combines quick wits and even quicker reflexes, making it a unique treat for the whole family to enjoy.”

Further broadcast information regarding the second series of Catchpoint will be confirmed in due course.
