Trivia

In September 2016, midway through the show's seventh series, it was announced that this series would be the last to air on the BBC. Apparently, this happened as a result of a rival broadcaster, Channel 4, that had "poached" the series. The day after the announcement, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, both announced that they would not be in agreement with the show moving to Channel 4 and would be stepping down. See more »

This is a great show!
13 May 2017 | by wideanglevisionSee all my reviews

I look forward to watching this show every week on Idaho's PBS. I love how the contestants are able to be creative with each challenge they are presented with. I hope I will continue to view future shows here in Idaho, USA. Keep up the good work Paul and Mary. I will be looking forward to the new hosts.
