The celebrity incarnation of the daytime quiz hosted by Rick Edwards, Impossible Celebrities is a new, six-part quiz show featuring 18 celebrities (although don’t be surprised if a few ‘celebrity’ names fail to ring any bells…). Read on for everything you need to know about the show.
Impossible Celebrities airs on Saturdays at 7pm on BBC1.
What’s the show’s premise?
For those who haven’t seen the daytime version of the show, Impossible Celebrities will see the 18 famous contestants attempt to answer general knowledge questions, while avoiding ‘impossible’ answers on the board – and all in the aid of charity. But watch out: one impossible answer, and the unfortunate celeb is out for the rest of the episode.
