The new trailer released by Channel 4 is our first opportunity to see new presenter Richard Ayoade in action since he took over from Stephen Merchant.

We also have a taste of his sarcastic nature as he comments on the challenges of the maze, saying ‘In short, it’s nothing like real life – which is frankly a relief.’

The series kicks off with a celebrity special, with stars Vicky Pattison, Louis Spence and the other contestants looking extremely anxious under pressure.
