I read today that one of the hardest and most exciting games shows from the 1980’s is set to make a comeback. Â The Krypton FactorÂ 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. Â 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. Â 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. Â 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.
