Gassed Up sees MOBO award-winning musician and Brummie petrolhead Mist take on six celebrities in some of the biggest challenges the UK scene has to offer.
Stepping up to the plate will be: double Olympic gold medallist boxer Nicola Adams OBE, comedian and TV presenter Joel Dommett, Grammy nominated songwriter and footballer Chelcee Grimes, TV personality and entrepreneur Spencer Matthews, grime MC and TV presenter Big Narstie and actor Ryan Thomas.
Each episode will see Mist go head to head in a high octane challenge against one of his celebrity guests – supported by expert driver and Drift Queen Becky Evans, pro BMXer and prankster Ryan Taylor and Supercar Dealer Rob Kelly.
Mentored and judged by specialists from the scene, Mist and his guests will learn the tricks of the trade, equipping them to create and commandeer crazy vehicles, leading to an ultimate head to head track challenge.
Nicola Adams OBE says: “I am a big adrenaline junkie so becoming a drone expert and taking on Mist and Ryan in the ultimate game of hide and seek for this episode of Gassed Up was epic! Watch out BBC Three…you’ve never seen a show like this!”
Big Narstie says: “If you like cars, this is the show for you. If you don’t like cars, that’s your business.”
Ryan Thomas says: “I loved getting the opportunity to take on Mist in Gassed Up for BBC Three, and on his home turf no less! Audiences can expect drifting, donuts and general chaos as we go head to head – I can’t wait for everyone to see this brilliant new series. Expect big stakes, big energy, big competition and big laughs.”
Spencer Matthews says: “Vin Diesel wasn’t available for BBC Three’s Gassed Up so naturally I stepped up.”
Further transmission details for the series will be announced in due course. BBC Three returns to TV on February 1st 2022.
