ITV have announced that Tim Vine and Joe Wilkinson will be the regular comedians in residence for the revamped Celebrity Squares.
The pair joins Warwick Davis for the game which isbased on the classic ‘Noughts and Crosses’ with a grid of nine boxes. Inside each box are celebrities who answer questions. The contestants have to say if they ‘agree’ or ‘disagree’ with the celebrity’s answer. If they are correct they win that square and if they win three boxes in a line – vertically, horizontally or diagonally – they win the round and money, before the winning contestant goes on to play the end game for the star prize.
Tim and Joe will compete alongside a host of famous faces during the course of the series.
Bob Massie, Head of Entertainment at production company September Films said: “We’re thrilled to have the talented Tim Vine and Joe Wilkinson as our resident comedians on Celebrity Squares. Joining host Warwick Davis, their irreverent and infectious humour will bring a new comedy twist to the series.”
