The crystals have been polished and the tracksuits have been pressed.

Filming has begun for the 12 x 60’ order on the purpose-built set at the Studios spanning over 30,000 square feet, created last year by original Maze designer James Dillon.

Richard Ayoade will once more guide teams of intrepid explorers through four challenging zones as they collect crystals to exchange for time in the iconic Crystal Dome.

Following a call for contestants earlier this year, thousands of people applied to take part in the new series, with six teams of five making it through the audition process. The order also includes six celebrity specials with donations made to Stand Up To Cancer.
