The Crystal Maze first look at celebrity special with Stephen Merchant


Here's a first look at the revamped Crystal Maze, a celebrity special hosted by Stephen Merchant.

The show is being revived by Channel 4 for its annual Stand Up to Charity fundraiser with a one-off episode later this month.

The line up of celebrities taking part in the celebrity special of The Crystal Maze were revealed last month.

Hosted by Stephen Merchant and filmed at The Crystal Maze Experience in London, the one-off special will see five celebrities take on the Aztec, Medieval, Futuristic and Industrial zones before sending them in to face the fans in the iconic Crystal Dome.

Football legend and BT Sport presenter Rio Ferdinand, and acclaimed actress Michelle Keegan will be hoping to crack the crystal in this special edition of the legendary gameshow.

Completing the celebrity team will be Paralympics champ Jonnie Peacock, TV and radio host Sara Cox, and comedian Josh Widdicombe.
