New host and new channel for the returning Blockbusters. It looks as if Bob Holness put up a good fight to stop them bringing it back, unfortunately he passed away 6 weeks ago and now they’re back with new host Simon Mayo.
Of course we don’t really think that’s the only reason it was brought back, just a coincidence we hope. If you feel you want to ask Simon for a P then you may be in luck as unlike Bob’s version, which only featured students who probably weren’t smart enough for University Challenge, the new version will allow anyone over 18.
Simon Mayo has said: “Blockbusters is an iconic show and a winning format. I feel very honoured and excited.”
With the return of Blockbusters we want to know which other game shows you’d like to see back and with who as its host?
