The Crystal Maze: Christmas special details confirmed

Richard Ayoade Crystal Maze

The revival of The Crystal Maze on Channel 4 is going down really rather well, and it’s thus little surprise that the channel has ordered up a Christmas special. A celebrity special, as it happens.

Richard Ayoade will be hosting the show, as per usual. Adam Buxton and Jessica Hynes are reprising their usual roles, too.

As for the new visitors to the maze itself? Taking on the challenges this time will be Mollie King (of The Saturdays), Ollie Locke (Made In Chelsea), Tom Davis (Murder In Successville), Paralympics gold medallist Ellie Simmonds, and Olympic gold medallist Nicola Adams. Simmonds will be the team captain.

We’ve now got confirmation too as to when to expect the special. Channel 4 has scheduled it for December 31st at 8pm.
