The Crystal Maze – non-celebrity version – returns this month

Ayoade Crystal Maze

Channel 4’s successful revival of The Crystal Maze, hosted by Richard Ayoade, has thus far solely sent celebrities into the four assorted zones on the hunt for crystals. However, us mere mortals are now finally getting our chance.

Following 30,000 applications for the chance to take part, Channel 4 has whittled down the contenders, and the full new series of the show will now start on Friday 25th August. It has an 8pm start time. First up amongst the civvies to try will be a family from Scotland called The Watsons. We wish them all the best in their quest.

Start the fans…
