The legendary game show Blankety Blank has been renewed for a brand-new series for BBC One.
The long running programme, which sees six celebrities helping contestants to fill in missing blanks, will return once again with the incomparable Bradley Walsh as host, for a 10-episode run.
Bradley Walsh says: “I absolutely love recording this show. We have some of the funniest comedians and some of Britain’s most well-known faces join us on the panel, and they’re incredible, but for me, it’s the players that steal the show. I’m looking forward to getting back into the studio and having a blast filming.”
Kate Phillips, Director of Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC says: “It’s been so brilliant having Blankety Blank back on the Beeb. And Bradley really is the perfect host for this very funny family show, dealing with unpredictable celebrities, contestants, and prizes!”
Charlie Irwin, Director of Programmes at Thames (a Fremantle label) said: “It’s astonishing to think that Blankety Blank has been a part of our lives for 43 years and we’re honoured to be able to continue entertaining audiences – particularly those who don’t remember the original series!”
Celebrity guests and further broadcast details will be confirmed in due course. For members of the public wishing to take part in the new series, they can apply to be on the show by clicking here.
