BRITAIN’S blank-iest game show is back on BBC One with a new celebrity panel to help contestants win the coveted cheque book and pen.
The original start date on September 17 was postponed following the death of the Queen.
How does Blankety Blank work?
A new series of Blankety Blank will air on Saturday, September 24, 2022.
The object of the game is to match the answers of as many of the six celebrity panellists as possible on fill-in-the-blank statements.
The main game is played in two rounds, as two contestants compete.
The contestants have to write their answers first on a card in secret, the celebrities will then be canvassed to give their answers.
The first celebrity to match the answer gives that contestant the victory.
In the rare occasion where there is still no match, the round is then replayed with a new question.
Who is the presenter of Blankety Blank?
The series will once again be presented by English actor and comedian, and much-loved game show presenter, Bradley Walsh.
Bradley Walsh said: ”It’s a brilliant show to work on. I get the chance to hang out with a lovely bunch of people for a few hours, as we attempt to play a silly, fun game.
