As we reported a few weeks ago, The Crystal Maze is back! The revival of the epic ‘90s TV show will even have a brand new presenter, the hilariously funny Richard Ayoade. And we can’t wait for the new 20-episode season to land on Channel 4.
But before all the Crystal Maze drama kicks off for realsies, we have a celebrity special kicking off the new show on Friday 23 June at 9pm. Check out the trailer:

The first entrants into the Crystal Maze will be Alex Brooker, Louie Spence, Vicky Pattison, Ore Oduba and Lydia Bright. How will they fare? (we bet we could kick their be-hinds…) and we’ll also get our first look at the new custom-made Crystal Dome – all 30,000 square feet of it! Once the celebrity special is out of the way, there will be 20 hour-long episodes with all of the excitement and adventure of the old 80s and 90s game show. While there are several changes from the original format (such as slightly smaller teams, a new futuristic zone, and Adam Buxton taking over from ‘Mumsie’), there’s no denying this Crystal Maze is going to be just as epic as its predecessor.
