Hit BBC One quiz show Bridge of Lies is moving to primetime for a new series featuring teams of celebrity contestants, while a second nail-biting daytime series with contestants from across the UK has also been commissioned for BBC One Daytime.
Bridge of Lies sees teams of contestants competing for cash by crossing a bridge made up of stepping stones across the studio floor. The first episode features soap actors Faye Brookes, Richard Blackwood, Natalie Anderson and John Partridge.
Each stepping stone has a different option, and the players must try to get from A to B by stepping on the truths and avoiding the lies, or risk falling off the bridge and out of the game. Series two is currently looking for contestants to take part.
Host Ross Kemp says: “I felt sure we hadn’t seen the last of that formidable bridge! Hosting this show, with all its jeopardy, tension and hilarious moments, was one of the most enjoyable parts of my year and I’m delighted that it’s been recommissioned by the BBC.
“The Bridge of Lies is tailor-made for a celeb version so I’m looking forward to putting teams of famous faces to the test. My main tip for them? No matter who you are or what you do, the bridge makes allowances for no one!”
Bridge Of Lies: Celebrity Specials begin Saturday 14th January on BBC One.
