Celebrity Crystal Maze

Celebrity Crystal Maze

Series 6



I’m ashamed to say it’s taken me this long to realise that the arrival of the new, East Asia-inspired Eastern Zone had meant the retirement of the Medieval Zone, and as much as I’m enjoying the new-look challenges it’s sad to see such a classic element of the 1990s series left (appropriately, to be fair) in the past. And does this mean no more quests for Jessica Hynes’s Knight character?

Anyway, doing their best with the zones that do remain this week are actor Sunetra Sarker, Brexit Party MEP Ann Widdecombe, Hollyoaks star Nikki Sanderson, broadcaster Matthew Wright and Love Island’s Wes Nelson, all a powerful example of the bizarre casting sheet this series seems to draw from.


Richard Ayoade guides five more well-known faces around the four zones of the Maze, tackling a range of skill, mystery, physical and mental challenges in a bid to secure elusive crystals as rewards for success. Actor Sunetra Sarker pilots plucky broadcaster Matthew Wright, seasoned politician Ann Widdecombe, Hollyoaks actor Nikki Sanderson and reality TV personality Wes Nelson. The outcome can only be described as one of the most breakaway entertaining - not to mention surreal - Crystal-based Maze outings to date.
