Originally a hit in the 1970s, and having returned for a stint in the 90s, game show Celebrity Squares has recently returned for its second revival, and is set for another series to be aired next year.
Presented by film and TV star Warwick Davis, the show has seen a plethora of famous faces sat behind the noughts-and-crosses game board, albeit of varying degrees of celebrity status. Bigger names have included James Corden, star of upcoming movie musical Into the Woods, and Barry Humphries, better known as alter-ego Dame Edna Everage. Among other celeb guests have been comedians Joe Vine and Tim Wilkinson, presenters Charlotte Hawkins and Andi Peters, and comedy actors Sara Pascal and Tom Rosenthal.
The game itself is simple; nine celebrities behind nine squares in a grid resembling a game of noughts and crosses. With each square comes a trivia question for the contestant – but they don’t have to answer it themselves. Instead, they see the celebrity’s answer and decide whether they think that answer is right or wrong. Three celebrity squares in a row, and the contestant wins a big cash prize.
ITV are currently looking for contestants to take part in the next series, which will be shot sometime next year. To find out more about getting involved, click here.
