Get ready for another spin as a new series of Michael McIntyre’s The Wheel set to air on BBC One later this year. The second half of the third series is also due to air this Spring.
From Hungry McBear Media, the show first aired in 2020 and was the highest new BBC Entertainment launch in a decade with episode one consolidating at 6.8m viewers.
Hosted by Michael McIntyre, the gameshow is packed with edge-of-your seat jeopardy, big laughs, huge stars and a colossal spinning Wheel. Filming is due to commence this Spring/Summer on the new series, and is expected to air on BBC One in the Autumn.
In each show, seven 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.
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…
The new series of The Wheel will air on BBC One later this year. Previous episodes are available on iPlayer.
