BBC confirms the fate of The Weakest Link with Romesh Ranganathan | The Sun

THE FATE of The Weakest Link has been confirmed with a return once again hosted by Romesh Ranganathan.

The big money game show will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in a brand new series later this year.

Viewers will be entertained by another all-star line-up of celebrity contestants attempting to bag up to £50,000 for charity.

The much-loved format sees them answering general knowledge questions as a team before only two remain.

They then go on to play head to head to determine the winner.

The Weakest Link returned to screens in 2021 with actor and comedian Romesh, 44, taking the helm for the first time.

Proving a hit with the public, overall the series reached 18.4m (up 30%), with a peak audience of 5.3m (BBC 30 Day All Screens data) watching the Strictly Come Dancing special.

Romesh said: “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 added: “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 commented: “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.

Celebrity contestants taking part are to be confirmed.
