Three contestants hope to answer their way to a fortune, and are helped by the seven celebrities around them. Can the famous faces help one of them to win big? That all depends on the spin of The Wheel!

In each show, seven fantastic celebrities are strapped to the circumference of the giant wheel. Each celebrity has brought one area of expertise to the show – and it is on these areas that the contestants must answer questions.

The contestants themselves are underneath The Wheel, on another smaller wheel! This Contestant Wheel is spun, and whichever contestant is randomly selected, rises up on their chair, to take their place at the centre of The Wheel and begin the game.

The contestant at the centre of The Wheel is in control – if they can stay there until the end of the show then they could win a life-changing sum of money. However, one wrong answer or spin of The Wheel and they’ll be back down to the Contestant Wheel, and they might never return…

Celebrities appearing on the upcoming series (in no particular order) include: Claire Balding, Darren Harriott, Jay Blades, Josie Gibson, Mollie King, Richard Madeley, Tom Allen, Big Narstie, Kay Burley, Stacey Dooley, Ed Balls.

Also appearing across the series are: Oti Mabuse, Jamie Laing, Josh Widdicombe, Ellie Taylor, Kate Wiliams, Ranvir Singh, Paddy McGuinness, Jonathan Ross, Richie Anderson, Nick Knowles, Mollie King, Alex Jones, Rachel Riley, Will Mellor and Fred Sirieix.

The Wheel returns later this month on BBC One and iPlayer.
