The family favourite Saturday night quiz show, The Weakest Link, hosted by Romesh Ranganathan for the fourth time, will return to BBC One and BBC iPlayer later this year.

Another star studded line up of celebrity contestants will battle it out in one of the world’s most iconic quizzes, where the celebrities work as a team to build a cash prize for charity whilst trying to avoid the walk of shame and being voted ‘The Weakest Link’ by their fellow contestants.

Only one player will be crowned The Strongest Link and secure the prize for charity. The new series, due to launch later this year, will feature a number of special themed episodes including Strictly Come Dancing, comedians, Gladiators, and duos.

Aiming to be voted the weakest link next series will be Gladiators Giant, Apollo, Bionic, Athena, Sabre, Fire and Diamond. The Traitors Series 2 winner and runner-up Harry Clark and Molly Pearce will also take part in an episode together.

Across the series will be Big Brother host Will Best and its latest celebrity winner David Potts, Naked Attraction's Anna Richardson, Spice Girl Mel B, GB News Breakfast host Eamonn Holmes, presenters Tyler West, Arielle Free and Nella Rose.

Plus comedian Aisling Bea, EastEnders' Mollie Rainford, drag performer La Voix, The Great British Bake Off's Briony May Williams. Also hoping to win for their charity will be actors Ben Bailey Smith, Shobna Gulati and Nick Pollard.

Also appearing on the series will be Jacqueline Harvey, Robert Bent, Samantha Kinghorn MBE, Andy Day, Wendi Peters and Kirsty Mitchell, with further names to be confirmed.

Romesh says: “It’s really a delight to be part of the BBC One Saturday night experience. I once again look forward to taking the credit if it goes well and blaming the format if it doesn’t.”

The Weakest Link (14 x 60) is a BBC Studios Entertainment production for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
