Channel 4 has ordered 12 new episodes of The Crystal Maze.

Richard Ayoade will return as host for six normal editions and six celebrity specials in aid of Stand Up To Cancer.

Applications open tomorrow at thecrystalmaze.com  for teams of five contestants wanting to take part in the new episodes, which will be filmed in Bristol this spring. 

The show is already due to return soon with new episodes filmed in 2017/

Channel 4 commissioning editor Tom Beck said: ‘The return of The Crystal Maze has been a huge success on 4, thanks in no small part to the brilliance of Richard Ayoade as the Maze Master and the inspired production team at Fizz. 

‘I’m particularly pleased by the number of young viewers who loved the show – and it’s nice to have finally made a programme I can watch with my children.’
