Meanwhile, Kalpna Patel-Knight, BBC head of entertainment, said: "The Weakest Link returns with its quick-fire questions and competitive gameplay once again.
"All of this combined with Romesh’s razor sharp wit, a fresh gaggle of celebrity contestants and themed episodes means another great series lies ahead, with something for everyone to enjoy!"
