Michael McIntyre’s The Wheel will air on Saturday nights from 23 September at 8:35PM.

In the first episode, the celebrity experts are Clare Balding on dogs, Darren Harriott on gaming, Jay Blades on furniture, Josie Gibson on TV, Mollie King on 00s music, Richard Madeley on classic cars and Tom Allen on hats.

The new episodes follow the return of Michael McIntyre’s Big Show earlier this year which last aired in 2019.

Six new episodes of the variety comedy series were recorded in front of a live audience at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.

Michael McIntyre said: “Three long years of no Unexpected Stars, of me not getting my hands on a single celebrity’s mobile phone, of people sleeping soundly without fear of me sneaking into their bedrooms.

“Well the wait is over, the Big Show is back and we’ve used those three years to think of even bigger surprises and bigger laughs!

“And, as well as making stars of the unsuspecting public on the Big Show, I will be making another series of the show that literally revolves around me! Yes! The Wheel is spinning back too!

“I’m elated that both shows are so beloved and returning to BBC One.”

Kate Phillips, Director of Entertainment Commissioning, added: “We’re delighted that Michael McIntyre is bringing not one but two shows back to BBC One. As always the Big Show will be full of big laughs, big surprises and so many memorable moments.

“And we can’t wait to see more celebrities getting into a spectacular spin on The Wheel!”
