Ninja Warrior UK To Return To ITV And ITV Hub

News Image
Ninja Warrior UK is about to get tougher as a revamped, high octane new season returns to ITV and ITV Hub.

Potato, the award-winning 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 this new 8 x 1 hour 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.

Michael Kelpie, MD of Potato and Executive Producer, said: "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."

Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning at ITV, said: "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!"

Ben Shephard said: "Ninja Warrior is a global phenomenon and one of the most fun and physically demanding shows on TV. The new format on ITV will see our daredevil contestants racing over challenging obstacles like you've never seen before. The Lycra and Ninja headbands are back - and that's just for me and Kammy! Seriously, I can't wait to be back alongside Kammy and Rochelle - it's going to be epic."

Rochelle Humes said: “This new series of Ninja Warrior UK is going to be incredible. We have such a wonderful passionate fan base, and we just can’t wait to show them what we have in store – I think they'll be surprised and thrilled in equal measure as they discover the new challenges. And with Ben and Kammy by my side, I know it’s going to be great fun!"
