Catchpoint is the action packed, physical game show, hosted by Paddy McGuinness.

Catchpoint sees ten giant screens have balls hidden above them which drop from the correct answer. Contestants must think fast because if they choose the wrong screen and miss the ball falling they risk losing their place in the game.

All the players must do is stand in front of the screen that they think is displaying the correct answer, press the button to release the ball and then catch the ball when it drops from the correct answer trapdoor. If the player is standing in the right place, it should be a piece of cake but get it wrong and they’ll have to rely on fast moves and quick reflexes not to drop that ball!

As well as the third series, Catchpoint also promises some very special celebrity episodes to look forward to, featuring famous faces who will use their quick reflexes and brains to see if they have what it takes to walk away victorious.

Paddy McGuinness says: “I can’t wait to see what is caught on camera this time around, bring on the balls!”

Jo Wallace, Acting Controller Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC, says: “Catchpoint is set to return once again and with the added excitement of celebrity specials, there is plenty to look forward to. It’s great to see that the balls are back in town!”
