BBC One's Blankety Blank: How does the game show work and who is presenting?

BBC1 has ordered a full series of the rebooted game show Blankety Blank following on from its Christmas special in 2020.

Here’s everything you need to know about the game show…

What is BBC One's Blankety Blank about? 

Blankety Blank first aired on BBC1 back in 1979 to 1983, and was hosted by broadcasting legend Sir Terry Wogan.

The iconic game show reboot will see six celebrities try and fill the missing blanks over a series of rounds and help win some amazing prizes for contestants.

The contestants would have to write their answers first on a card in secret, the celebrities would then be canvassed to give their answers. The first celebrity to match the answer gives that contestant the victory. 

In the rare occasion where there is still no match, the round is then replayed with a new question.

Last year’s Christmas special celebrity panel included Jimmy Carr, Danny Jones, Emilia Fox, Anita Rani, Sue Perkins and Amir Khan.

The celebrities for this new series are yet to be confirmed. 

Who is presenting Blankety Blank? 

The 10×35’ series will once again be presented by English actor and comedian, Bradley Walsh.

Bradley Walsh said: “I struggle to remember the last time I laughed as much as when I was filming Blankety Blank – so when they asked if I’d be up for doing a series, I jumped at the chance, I’m just so pleased I get to be a part of it."

“I stand on the shoulders of giants like Les Dawson and Sir Terry Wogan but I’m hoping to put my own stamp on the fantastically nostalgic show,” he explained.

Director of Entertainment at the BBC, Kate Phillips said: “Blankety Blank has it all: ridiculous questions, unpredictable celebrities, bizarre prizes and, in Bradley a very funny and much loved host. I can’t wait for everyone to watch and start filling in those blanks!”

When does Blankety Blank start and how can I watch it?

The series will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

The nine-part series begins on Saturday, Oct 2 at 9pm on BBC1.
