CelebAbility arrives on ITV2



ITV2 has commissioned CelebAbility, a brand new 6 x 45 physical comedy entertainment show from Potato, makers of Ninja Warrior and The Chase from an original idea devised by Mor or Les Productions.
 
Hosted by comedian Iain Stirling, this new entertainment show will feature a group of 5 friends who will go head to head with 5 celebrities in a series of hilarious rounds.  All rounds are based on the unusual skill or ability that the celebrities believe they naturally possess.
 
All the games build up to a final prize winning game in which the remaining friends must answer questions about the remaining celebrities.  Fewer celebrities mean fewer possible answers so the greater the chance of winning and the more questions answered correctly means the greater the cash prize!
 
"I'm absolutely buzzing to start the show and find out how truly talented our British celebrities are. Are celebrities fundamentally better than members of the public? It's about time someone found out!" says host Iain Stirling.
