CATCHPOINT RETURNS WITH SERIES OF CELEBRITY SPECIALS ON BBC ONE

Catchpoint returns for a brand new celebrity filled run with an All Star series landing on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in 2022.




Hosted by Paddy McGuinness and made by Possessed and 12 Yard, Celebrity Catchpoint (8 x 30') will see a gaggle of well-known faces having to think fast and react quickly as they tackle the ultimate battle of brains and balls in order to land a cash prize for their favourite charities.


Famous faces will compete together in pairs in the physical gameshow. If contestants drop the ball they could lose everything - but if the celebs manage to hang onto their balls, they could walk away victorious.



Paddy McGuinness says: "I'm thrilled that Catchpoint is back bigger and better than ever! With a load of celebrities trying to catch our big and small balls it's bound to be packed with lots of laughs and some sensational diving."


Zoë Tait, Executive Producer, says: "We're thrilled to be making Celebrity Catchpoint and can't wait to see how our famous faces fare when trying to catch the balls, and with Paddy as ringmaster there's bound to be a lot of laughs along the way!"



Kate Phillips, Director of Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC, says: "They may be big talent but whether they’ve got the brains and balls to win this game is another matter!"


The series will once again be filmed at BBC Pacific Quay in Glasgow with further broadcast information and celebrity contestants to be confirmed in due course.
