August 24, 2022

ITV has announced a raft of returning formats to kick start its Autumn entertainment schedule.

The Masked Dancer, The Voice UK and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire are all back on ITV and ITV Hub from September 3rd, with Ninja Warrior Race For Glory making its long awaited return later in the month.

The eight part second series of The Masked Dancer (Bandicoot) debuts from 6:30pm, with new celebrity detective Peter Crouch joining Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall and Oti Mabuse on the panel. Joel Dommett returns to host the compelling TV guessing game.

The Voice UK then follows at 8:00pm, as superstar coaches, Sir Tom Jones, Anne-Marie and Olly Murs reunite with host Emma Willis in the search for the next vocal superstar.

Jeremy Clarkson then presides over another series of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (a Sony Pictures format produced by Stellify Media) from 9:30pm, as contestants take to the hot seat in a bid to win a life changing seven figure sum. The series will also feature winners from brand new daytime series Fastest Finger First, hosted by Anita Rani.

Meanwhile, RuPaul Charles fronts a seven part series of Celebrity Lingo (Triple Brew Media, part of Objective Media Group) from September 4th at 6:30pm, as famous faces go head-to-head in the fast-paced word play game, vying to fill in the blanks and find the missing words.

From September 10th, viewers will then see Ninja Warrior UK Race For Glory (Potato) back in action, as the toughest series on TV gets tougher. Ben Shepherd, Rochelle Humes and Chris Kamara resume their presenting duties in this revamped, high octane eight part series.

Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning at ITV, said “We have jam packed our September Saturday night schedule with the very best in unmissable ITV entertainment, with something for everyone to get households playing along, guessing along and singing along throughout the autumn months.”
