On Channel 4. Apparently Richard O'brien and Stephen Merchant are hosting.

I hope they don't make the show crap.

I just excitedly went to add it to our planner - only to find its a special celebrity edition (I'm never overly keen on celebrity versions of normal gameshows) in aid of stand up to cancer (dh has inoperable stomach cancer and cancer adverts etc are all just a bit too depressing atm) so I haven't bothered.

Sorry Chasing flowers

If you all come back and report that it's great I'll catch up on 4-OD!

I'm so glad they've not tried to update it at all and are still using polystyrene and stuff.

Mr Peacock is quite good looking.

I've taken part in the London experience - we were much better! (We also played far more games.)

Jasonandyawegunorts Sun 16-Oct-16 21:28:23

I'd love to do that but i don't have 5 friends.

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 16-Oct-16 21:28:43

They may be celebs but not that brainy 😂

Shesgotelectricboobs Sun 16-Oct-16 21:31:22

I wanted to do the London one. But didn't have enough people interested. Apparently jason if you signed up on your own they would fine you a team.

Jasonandyawegunorts Sun 16-Oct-16 21:31:27

Want this to come back for a full series.

Jasonandyawegunorts Sun 16-Oct-16 21:31:59

Apparently jason if you signed up on your own they would fine you a team.

Being with strangers is even worse!!!

IfartInYourGeneralDirection Sun 16-Oct-16 21:32:48

We should do a mumsnet team.

Jasonandyawegunorts Sun 16-Oct-16 21:34:24

I'm not sure a short fat man is represenative of the mumsnet brandgrin

Jasonandyawegunorts Sun 16-Oct-16 21:39:28

OMG MUMSEY's back too!!!

wanderings Sun 16-Oct-16 21:48:19

Indeed they do put you on a team if you book alone. This TV programme is somewhat deadpan - the mazemaster we had bigged it up a lot more, there was a lot more "excitement". It's as if this lot have been briefed to be really quiet.

As Richard o'Brien said to one team: "There's no excitement among you, are you going to be a quiet bunch? That means I have to make a lot of noise."

LIZS Sun 16-Oct-16 21:51:11

They've tweaked the music sad

EsmesBees Sun 16-Oct-16 21:53:18

Why is Sara Cox not getting to play any games?

HairsprayQueen Sun 16-Oct-16 21:53:59

I'll be in the mumsnet team- I'm fat but quite strong but shit at maths- I'm sure there's a place for me!

Really enjoying tonight, keep finding myself with an inane grin watching it!

Did anyone play at Blackpool back in the day?
