Even though he’s not hosting the show, Richard O’Brien will return to ‘The Crystal Maze’ later this week, when Channel 4 air a one-off special.
Stephen Merchant has already been announced as the programme’s presenter, but producers have found a way for Richard to still be involved.
As reported by Digital Spy, Stephen will show the celebrity contestants a message on a retro machine at the start of the episode, and it will be Richard’s face that appears on the screen.
The one-off show will see celebrity contestants take on the Crystal Maze in the hope of winning money for charity, Stand Up To Cancer.
‘The Crystal Maze’ is returning after a 21-year absence from our screens, having originally aired from 1990 to 1995.
It was previously rebooted as a live immersive experience in London earlier this year.
The project was the brainchild of three ‘Crystal Maze’ fans who raised funds to build it thanks to donations from the public.
