Review

The ever-entertaining Crystal Maze reboot returns with a new series full of celebrity contestants and some interesting tweaks on the format, introducing a new themed area for the first time since the 1990s (the East Asia-influenced “Eastern Zone”) and a new format to “supersize” one crystal collected during the game.

Breaking in these changes this week are reality stars Gemma Collins (aka The GC) and James Argent, presenters Rick Edwards and Carol Vorderman and The Mash Report’s Ellie Taylor, all of whom make for a lively bunch from the off.

“I really feel this has the makings of an absolute trainwreck,” deadpan host Richard Ayoade notes happily at the start of the hour and he’s not wrong – though surprisingly, the notoriously accident-prone Collins does fare better than you might expect in the usual challenges of Skill, Mystery, Mental and Physical.

Summary

Richard Ayoade guides a team of well-known faces around the four zones of the Maze, tackling a range of skill, mystery, physical and mental challenges. Gemma Collins assumes the roles of captain, alongside team-mates James `Arg' Argent, Carol Vorderman, Ellie Taylor and Rick Edwards. As usual some self-congratulatory highs, lock-in lows and some semblances of redemption lies in store for all concerned.
