Ross Kemp will return to host ‘Bridge of Lies’ season two.

The BBC game show, which debuted in 2021, will once again put contestants through their paces by testing their knowledge.

Ross, 58, said: “I bet we didn’t see the last of that formidable bridge! Hosting the show, with all its pitfalls, tension and hilarious moments, was one of the happiest parts of my year and I am glad it has been recommended by BBC.

“Bridge of Lies is geared for a celeb version, so I’m looking forward to putting teams of famous faces to the test. My main tip for them? No matter who you are or what you do, The bridge doesn’t make allowances for anyone!”

The show sees a team of contestants fighting for the prize money by crossing a bridge made of stepping stones.

Players must move from A to B by stepping on the truth, avoiding a lie or risk of falling off the bridge and walking empty-handed.

The show, which has been commissioned for BBC One Daytime, will also feature a celebrity special that is scheduled to air in early 2023, with regular episodes arriving later in 2023.

BBC Commissioning Director Kate Phillips said: “‘Bridge of Lies’ was a huge hit with daytime audiences, so it’s very exciting to bring it back for a second series and commission a primetime version.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing our competitive celebrities deal with the pressure of the bridge and the pressure of being in the witty and formidable company of our illustrious host, Ross.”
