Applications for Blankety Blank‘s current series are currently closed.

Blankety Blank first started in 1979 on BBC 1 hosted by Terry Wogan before Les Dawson took over in 1984 until 1990. A revival in 1997 saw Paul O’Grady (as Lily Savage) host the show, first on BBC One and later ITV.

In 2016, David Walliams hosted a one-off Christmas special on ITV which was followed by current host Bradley Walsh taking charge in Christmas 2020 back on BBC One.

Bradley said: “I struggle to remember the last time I laughed as much as when I was filming Blankety Blank – so when they asked if I’d be up for doing a series, I jumped at the chance, I’m just so pleased I get to be a part of it.


“I stand on the shoulders of giants like Les Dawson and Sir Terry Wogan but I’m hoping to put my own stamp on the fantastically nostalgic show.”
