Sorrell will be joined by her real life partner, comedian Vic Reeves, reality TV star Ferne McCann, international cricketer Graeme Swann and comedian Susan Calman as her teammates.

The celebrity series has brought some interesting new tweaks to its original format, introducing a new themed area - the East Asia-influenced ‘Eastern Zone’ - for the first time since the 1990s.

Celebs will also have the chance to ‘supersize’ one crystal collected during the games, giving them more time inside The Crystal Dome at the centre of the maze.

When is it on TV?

The third episode of the new series will air on Channel 4 tonight at 8pm.
