What’s the matter with me? I’m a sophisticated, urbane culture vulture, yet here I am literally shouting at the screen, desperately hoping Tom from McFly can put some boxes in a neat pile within a certain time.

That’s the magic of The Cube. It looks extremely trivial and it is: contestants play a series of games that aren’t much more complex than throwing a ball of paper into a wastebasket. But it’s deliriously exciting, thanks to the futuristic presentation, the escalating prize money and the way in which the simplicity of the games makes you feel you could do it better.
Celebrity participants bring an extra twist. Tonight’s first, Tom from McFly, has his band mates shouting funnies from the sidelines and Phillip Schofield guiding him (more than he does with members of the public – famous people get all the breaks). Tom turns out to be a bit of a classic contestant.


Charity edition featuring Tom Fletcher, who is encouraged by bandmates Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd in the audience as he faces a number of challenges inside the giant transparent box. Tom finds himself having to make a big decision as he tries to win a large cash prize for good causes. Phillip Schofield presents.
