Lingo is the word guessing game that got the whole nation on tenterhooks with its hit daytime format, and now audiences are about to get a brand-new celebrity version.
Hosted by the inimitable Emmy award-winning US entertainer RuPaul Charles, Celebrity Lingo will see famous faces pair up and go head-to-head in the fast-paced word play game as they vie to fill in the blanks and find the missing words.
Celebrity pairings for the first show are Joel & Hannah Dommett, Alan Halsall & Andy Whyment and Andi Peters & Laura Tobin.
On hosting the first inception of the celebrity series, RuPaul Charles said “Now, more than ever before, people want to have fun, and Celebrity Lingo is here to serve it up generously.”
ITV Head of Entertainment Commissioning Katie Rawcliffe said “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome the phenomenal RuPaul to ITV as a host of a peak time celebrity version.”
Produced by Triple Brew Media, part of Objective Media Group, the 7 x 60” series will launch on Sunday 4th September on ITV.
