The format was launched by Beeb bosses in 2022 and became an instant hit with fans.

A group of participants take turns crossing a digital floor on which both correct and incorrect answers for a specific category are gradually displayed.

Participants try to only step on the correct answers during the game to avoid falling off and potentially going home empty-handed.

Stars competing in the celebrity edition of the daytime series include Dion Dublin, Sam Quek, Melvin Odoom and Joanna Page.

Sinitta, Ian “H” Watkins, Ritchie Neville and Una Healy will also appear later in the race.

Daytime and soap fans are also treated to a TV crossover featuring Gethin Jones, Dr. Morning Live’s Ranj Singh, Anna Haugh and Briony May Williams will appear.

Taking part from the soap world are Chris Bisson, Lucy-Jo Hudson, Simon Gregson and Danielle Harold.

Speaking about the celebrity special, Ross Kemp said: “I had so much fun filming the daytime version of Bridge of Lies, but there’s something about the celebrity series that takes the dangerousness up a notch.”

“Maybe it’s because the celebs are doing it for charity…or just because they need to maintain their reputation!”

The 59-year-old added: “This year’s series is full of big personalities and the competition is tougher than ever.

“The usual rivalries between pop stars, soap stars and comics are left aside because, as we learned on this show, the only way to conquer the bridge is through effective teamwork. But remember celebrities: It’s Saturday night – so let’s have some fun too!”

Celebrity Bridge of Lies arrives on BBC One and iPlayer at 5.40pm on Saturday April 6, while Bridge of Lies continues weekdays at 4.30pm.
