Krypton Factor to Return

Posted by Big Boo on November 26th, 2008

I read today that one of the hardest and most exciting games shows from the 1980’s is set to make a comeback.  The Krypton Factor was great fun to watch and a real test for the contestants as it stretched them most mentally and physically.

Whether the new show will be as tough remains to be seen, but I certainly hope that today’s penchant for lowest common denominator television doesn’t tarnish the name of the show.  So long as they don’t do a “Celebrity” version we’ll probably be OK.

The original host of the show, Gordon Burns, will not be returning.  Instead taking his place is Ben Shephard (pictured), one of the presenters on GMTV Today and host of the BBC’s Lottery tie-in show 1 vs. 100.  The new show is apparently set to appear on our screens in January, so it won’t be long to see what the new version will be like.
