Michael McIntyre's Big Show and The Wheel returning to BBC One

Both shows will return to Saturday nights.

Returning for a new six-part series after three years away, Michael McIntyre's Big Show will feature fan favourites such as Send to All, Celebrity Midnight Gameshow and the Unexpected Star of the Show. And once again the series will be recorded in front of a live audience at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.

Michael McIntyre's The Wheel will also return for 12 brand new episodes after becoming the highest new BBC Entertainment launch in a decade when it launched in 2020.

Hosted by Michael McIntyre, the gameshow is packed with edge-of-your seat jeopardy, big laughs, huge stars and a colossal spinning Wheel. Contestants hope to answer their way to a fortune, guided by seven celebrities but can they help them to win life-changing cash? That all depends on the spin of The Wheel.

Speaking about both shows returning, Michael McIntyre said "Three long years of no Unexpected Stars, of me not getting my hands on a single celebrity’s mobile phone, of people sleeping soundly without fear of me sneaking into their bedrooms. Well, the wait is over, the Big Show is back and we’ve used those three years to think of even bigger surprises and bigger laughs!"

"And, as well as making stars of the unsuspecting public on the Big Show, I will be making another series of the show that literally revolves around me! Yes! The Wheel is spinning back too! I’m elated that both shows are so beloved and returning to BBC One."

Managing Director for Hungry McBear Media, Dan Baldwin said "We can’t wait to bring two of the nation’s favourite Saturday night shows back to BBC One. If you’ve missed seeing Gino D’Acampo in his pants at midnight, a firefighter singing Opera or Jamie Oliver texting everyone in his phone that he loves chicken nuggets - then you’re in for a real treat as Big Show’s returning! And Michael will once again be at the centre of TV’s biggest gameshow - The Wheel. See you there!"

To which BBC's Director of Entertainment Commissioning, Kate Phillips added "We’re delighted that Michael McIntyre is bringing not one but two shows back to BBC One. As always the Big Show will be full of big laughs, big surprises and so many memorable moments. And we can’t wait to see more celebrities getting into a spectacular spin on The Wheel!"
