ITV bring ‘revamped’ Ninja Warrior UK to screens

Ben Shephard, Rochelle Humes and Chris Kamara are back to host the newly formatted series.

Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning at ITV:

“This all new, enhanced and reinvigorated series of Ninja Warrior UK contains all the electricity, excitement and entertainment needed to make it compulsive Saturday night viewing. Let the challenges commence!”

Potato, the ITV Studios label behind The Chase, Beat The Chasers and Moneyball, has confirmed that the hit TV entertainment series Ninja Warrior UK will be back, but this time it’s bigger, faster, harder and complete with an all-new competition structure.

In a twist on the format, and for the first time in the show’s history, the hunt is on for two champions, as the UK’s top female and male competitors take on the most challenging course ever to be crowned Ninja Warrior UK Male and Female Champions.

The contestants will not only face each other but they will also have to face the ‘Ninjas’ – a team of professional Ninja Warrior athletes – in head-to-head races. Ben Shephard, Rochelle Humes and Chris Kamara will preside over the action as contestants take on new courses, new obstacles and even bigger challenges designed as the ultimate test of strength, speed, and courage.

During the eight-part series, viewers will witness and cheer on the most determined and driven batch of competitors so far, as they put everything on the line to face triumph or failure in front of family, friends, and the nation. The programme will air in hour-long slots.

Ninja Warrior UK has enjoyed enormous success both on and off the screen, with the show successfully extending into physical leisure destinations with over one million people having visited one of the Ninja Warrior Adventure Parks in the last 12 months, and 13 venues now open across the UK including most recent openings in Milton Keynes and Chatham.

Michael Kelpie, MD of Potato and Executive Producer:

‘There is no other show like Ninja Warrior UK; it’s bigger, tougher, more exciting than anything else on TV and proper Saturday night entertainment for the entire family. We’re thrilled to be back with Ben, Kammy and Rochelle, filming in front of a full audience and with loads of exciting new surprises for this year’s competitors – and, most importantly, for the viewers.”
