The Crystal Maze Wants You!


Show the rest of the country what Putney’s made of and sign up for the legendary Crystal Maze before it’s too late!

That’s right, the 90’s hit game show is back for 2017 and the producers are looking for new contestants, but do you have what it takes?

In case you’ve forgotten how it all works, contestants will compete as a team of five, venturing through the Aztec, Medieval, Industrial and Future zones of the maze to reach the Crystal Dome. Of course all the challenges you remember are back, testing contestants’ prowess through physical, mental, skill and mystery tests, rewarding the worthy with crystals used to boost the timer in the Crystal Dome.

It wouldn’t be the Crystal Maze without the host though, who could forget the eccentric stylings and attire of Richard O’Brien and Ed Tudor-Pole? Well this revival comes with a cracker of a host in the form of Richard Ayoade, star of The IT Crowd and a comedian, director and writer in his own right.

We don’t know what kind of prizes will be on offer, nor can we confirm that Mumsey will be back (fingers crossed she is in some form!), but we’re happy to see this silly but beloved sitcom back on Channel 4 as of later this year. Make sure you sign up soon (a 6th ‘stand-by’ team member is required), as applications close on February 13th 2017.

Who would you take into the Crystal Maze?
