BBC One has found the celebs for Impossible Celebrities.
Gregg Wallace, Jorgie Porter, Steps singer Ian ‘H’ Watkins, Debbie McGee Angela Scanlon, Rory Reid, TV presenter Dotty, Chizzy Akudolu, Liz Carr, Russell Kane, Rachel Parris, Imran Yusuf, Craig Hill, Iwan Thomas MBE, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Spencer Matthews, Vicky Pattison and Louise Pentland have signed up for the celebrity edition of the popular quiz show.
Impossible Celebrities sees 18 celebrity contestants compete for the chance to win £10,000 for a charity of their choice. In each episode, the celebrities must avoid giving impossible answers as they battle it out across three rounds of impossible style multiple choice questions. Every right answer takes them a step closer to a shot at that jackpot – but a single impossible answer will knock them out for that episode.
Each week one celebrity will win the prize money for their chosen charity, making way for a new contender. Joining the Impossible Celebrities line up across the weeks will be: Dick and Dom (episode two), Reverend Kate Bottley (episode three), S Club 7’s Hannah Spearritt (episode four), Anton Du Beke (episode five) and JLS’ JB Gill (episode six)
The series, which is being hosted by Rick Edwards, is produced by Mighty Productions. It was commissioned by the BBC’s Controller of Entertainment Kate Phillips and Director of BBC Content Charlotte Moore. The executive producers are Lynn Sutcliffe and Hugh Rycroft. In addition to the Celebrity edition, Mighty Production has been commissioned by BBC One to produce a fourth season of Impossible. Impossible Celebrities will be recorded at the BBC’s Pacific Quay studios in Glasgow and will be produced from the new enlarged Mighty Productions Scotland base in Union St, Glasgow.
