This summer sees the return of Apocalypse Wow to ITV2 and ITV Hub.

The epic and hilarious physical game show set in the ‘Torture Dome’ - an outrageous secret underground club, part-BDSM dungeon, part Fight Club - welcomes new host Arielle Free alongside Donna Preston who returns to assume the role of ‘The Mistress’.

The famous faces signing up are former world champion boxer Amir Khan, musician Tinchy Stryder, Real Housewife Tanya Bardsley, Ibiza Weekender’s David Potts, comedians Luke Kempner and Harriet Kemsley, presenter Yasmin Evans and Love Islanders Eyal Booker and Samira Mighty.

Every episode a team of four celebrities enter the dome to take on The Mistress’s terrifying superhuman ‘Bosses’.

Alongside memorable returners such as Hot Slippy Jesus, The Belly and Pole Cat, The Mistress has reinforced the ranks with Tiny Iron (owner of Britain's biggest biceps), Cupid Stupid (a grumpy arrow-wielding god of love) the Locksmith (a shocking escapologist) and Pandora (a fierce female wrestler).

The team must unite in a bid to defeat these extraordinary opponents taking them on in a series of ludicrous and entertaining physical challenges.

Alone the celebrities would be demolished, but together they stand the chance of overcoming a series of crazed contenders to win the day and take home a load of cash for charity.

Each episode The Mistress will decide who is the weakest celebrity and they will be placed inside the human pinata which is covered in all the money the celebrities have won in that episode. Their teammates will bash the cash off their mate who will then be banished before a new celebrity enters the Torture Dome to join the team.

Arielle Free says: “Can’t wait for everyone to see us put our favourite celebs through their paces in the most bonkers and brilliant challenges. Those that fail, face being bashed by their former teammates whilst dressed as a human sized chicken piñata – obvs.”

Apocalypse Wow is a Tuesday’s Child production. The new series starts 24th June, 10pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
