The Crystal Maze to return with David Tennant as host?

Crystal Maze

Reports in The Sun are claiming that classic game show The Crystal Maze will return TV as part of Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer night.

It is being claimed a celebrity edition of the show will form part of a special night of programming in October, with the possibility of a full series if the ratings are good. At the show’s height it attracted between 4-6 million viewers.

Although nothing has yet to be confirmed, a TV insider told The Sun that they are hoping that former Doctor Who star David Tennant will be host, following the footsteps of Richard O’Brien and Ed Tudor-Pole.

The insider said: “Even two decades after it last aired, there are very few shows that have been as magical and action-packed as The Crystal Maze. It is still remembered extremely fondly today. Channel 4 are hoping to tap into that nostalgia and believe viewers will jump at the chance to finally take on the show’s adventurous challenges themselves.”

It will not be the first revival of the show. Last year an interactive Crystal Maze experience was successfully crowdfunded (full story).
