Former ‘Coronation Street’ star Michelle will be joined on the show by ex-England footballer Rio Ferdinand, Paralympics champ Jonnie Peacock, Radio 2 DJ Sara Cox, and comedian Josh Widdicombe.

The one-off special will see the five celebs taking on the Aztec, Medieval, Futuristic and Industrial zones, before they face the fans in the iconic Crystal Dome.

It was announced last month that Stephen Merchant will host ‘The Crystal Maze’, succeeding previous hosts Richard O’Brien and Ed Tudor-Pole.

The show is returning after a 21-year absence from our screens, having originally aired from 1990 to 1995.

The project was the brainchild of three ‘Crystal Maze’ fans who raised funds to build it thanks to donations from the public.
