More Celebrity Weakest Link For Romesh Ranganathan

TV’s favourite back-stabbing big money game show is back once again as the quick-fire general knowledge quiz The Weakest Link returns to BBC One and BBC iPlayer for a brand new series.

Made by BBC Studios Entertainment, another all-star line-up of celebrity contestants will attempt to win up to £50,000 for charity by answering general knowledge questions before only two remain and play head to head to determine the winner.

The Weakest Link returned to screens in 2021 with new host Romesh Ranganathan at the helm and proved a hit with viewers. Overall the series reached 18.4M (30%) last year (Based on 3min+), with a peak audience of 5.3m (BBC 30 Day All Screens data) watching the Strictly Come Dancing special.

Romesh Ranganathan says: “I’m delighted to be doing another series, partly because it’s a fun show and the response has been amazing, but mainly to avoid ‘Turns out Romesh was The Weakest Link’ headlines.”

Kate Phillips, Director of Unscripted at the BBC says: “Led once again by our Ringmaster Romesh, viewers can expect plenty more laughs and almost certainly loads of back stabbing too as the nation’s favourite quick fire quiz returns, I can’t wait!”

Pete Ogden, Executive Producer BBC Studios says: “I am so excited to make The Weakest Link again out of Pacific Quay in Glasgow. It was wonderful to see the last series land so well with viewers and there’s nothing we love more than putting celebrities under pressure and making them vote each other off. Romesh is a treat to work with and I can’t wait to unleash him on another batch of celebrities.”

The new series will be once again filmed at BBC Pacific Quay in Glasgow, with The Weakest Link returning to BBC One and BBC iPlayer later in 2022.

The celebrity contestants will be confirmed in due course.
