The first of two new entertainment series for BBC One is Let’s Get Ready To Tumble, a series involving celebrities and gymnasts.
The show will be a live, Saturday night competition featuring some of the nation’s best-loved celebrities vaulting, tumbling and flipping head-over-heels to try and win the public’s votes. The complete amateurs will be given a crash course in the basics of gymnastics before teaming up with the highest-flying, gravity-defying gymnasts from across the globe to tackle never-before-seen, new-to-TV disciplines.
With the full backing of British Gymnastics, the trainers who helped take Louis Smith and Beth Tweddle to Olympic glory are ready to turn the nation’s pop stars, actors, newsreaders and chefs into heroes of the high bars and titans of the tumble track.
One thing’s for certain, you can expect the celebs to be pushed out of their comfort zone in what is probably the most physically demanding show of its kind anywhere in the world. – Katie Taylor, Controller of Entertainment and Events
Let’s Get Ready To Tumble was developed by Leon Wilde and BBC In-house Entertainment’s Format Development Team. BBC commissioner is Mirella Breda. The second series from BBC Entertainment is a make-over series for primetime BBC One.
