Ross Kemp will front brand new BBC One day time game show The Bridge Of Lies.

The new series promises both high drama and stakes that will keep the contestants on their toes and their eyes on the prize as they risk losing it all with each step they take.

The Bridge Of Lies will see teams of contestants compete for cash by crossing a bridge made up of stepping stones across the studio floor.

Bridge of Lies begins on BBC One and iPlayer at 4:30PM on Monday 14 March and continues daily.

Each stepping stone has a different option, and the players must try to get from A to B by stepping on the truths and avoiding the lies in order to cross the floor safely, or risk falling off the bridge and out of the game.

Ross Kemp said of the show: “It’s fair to say I’ve found myself in some dangerous situations in recent years, so I reckon I’m well-prepared for the jeopardy of The Bridge Of Lies!

“This is something a little different for me, and after a challenging year, we’re all crying out for a fun new show to kick back and enjoy.

“I’m delighted to be working with STV Studios again and can’t wait to be back on BBC One in 2022, having a giggle with all the contestants and helping them win some cash in the process. Bring it on!”

Explaining what sets Bridge Of Lies apart from other quizzes, he continued: “Firstly, it’s very physical. The contestants are not just standing behind a podium answering questions; they have to physically make their way across the Bridge, and that’s no easy feat.

“We also get to watch contestants reacting to how their fellow team members play the game.

“We see inside the various group dynamics and get an insight into how these people interact with each other. It can all get a little bit soapy actually.

“You don’t have to be a massive quizzer to get into it – it’s as much about following the journey of the contestants as it is about knowing or not knowing the answers.”

But he warned: “The further across the Bridge you get, the game gets harder. When you’re halfway across, you’ve still got a long way to go, so don’t get too impressed with yourself!

“The Bridge can be kind, but it’s a formidable beast.

“The game relies on knowledge, strategy, and a little bit of luck. It’s loads of fun, but there’s also a lot of jeopardy involved.”

Bridge of Lies begins on BBC One and iPlayer at 4:30PM on Monday 14 March and continues daily.
