The Weakest Link | Series 3 Preview (BBC One)
TV’s favourite back-stabbing big money game show is back once again as the quick-fire general knowledge quiz The Weakest Link returns to BBC One and BBC iPlayer for a brand new series.
Made by BBC Studios Entertainment, another all-star line-up of celebrity contestants will attempt to win up to £50,000 for charity by answering general knowledge questions before only two remain and play head to head to determine the winner.
The Weakest Link returned to screens in 2021with new host Romesh Ranganathan at the helm and proved a hit for BBC One. Overall the series reached 18.4m (30%) people. The second series then aired late last year, which proved as successful as the first.
Romesh Ranganathan previously said: “I’m delighted to be doing another series, partly because it’s a fun show and the response has been amazing, but mainly to avoid ‘Turns out Romesh was The Weakest Link’ headlines.”
Kate Phillips, Director of Unscripted at the BBC previously said: “Led once again by our Ringmaster Romesh, viewers can expect plenty more laughs and almost certainly loads of back stabbing too as the nation’s favourite quick fire quiz returns, I can’t wait!”
The first episode of the new series is an EastEnders special with Brian Conley, Danielle Harold, Kellie Bright, Delroy Atkinson, Romesh Ranganathan, Natalie Cassidy, Ross Boatman, Lorraine Stanley.
The Weakest Link returns Saturday 18th November on BBC One and iPlayer.
