Review

Still preferred the Crystal Maze in its 90s heyday? Richard Ayoade hears you loud and clear.

“Yes it did used to be better, we know that,” he tells contestant Kara Tointon when she unwisely mentions her “nostalgic” love for the old series. “Don’t bring it up – it’s painful.”

Still, perhaps he’s being too harsh. The rebooted version of the puzzle game has definitely brought in some truly devious challenges including a virtual reality maze that made for hysterical TV when faced by Gemma Collins and Susan Calman in earlier episodes this year.

Now, Al Murray tries his luck in the digital challenge – but can teammates Tointon, Melvin Odoom, Olivia Attwood and Ashley Taylor Dawson steer him to success?

Summary

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. DJ Melvin Odoom takes on the role of team captain, alongside comedian Al Murray, actor Kara Tointon, reality TV stalwart Olivia Attwood and Hollyoaks actor Ashley Taylor Dawson. As usual self-congratulatory highs, lock-in lows and some semblances of redemption lie in store for all concerned.
