ROSS KEMP will return to Glasgow to film new episodes of a hit TV show.

BBC One quiz show Bridge of Lies is moving to primetime for a new series featuring teams of celebrity contestants, while a second daytime series has also been commissioned for BBC One Daytime.

The new celebrity episodes will air in early 2023, while regular episodes of the STV Studios-produced show, filmed in Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall, will follow on BBC One Daytime later in 2023.

Ross Kemp will be hosting the quiz show.

The actor has previously filmed in Glasgow for a documentary about Barlinnie, which he referred to as “one of Britain’s ‘most notorious prisons”.

He spent time in the jail for “Ross Kemp Behind Bars: Inside Barlinnie”, which was released in 2017.

Kemp also hosted the first series of Bridge of Lies, which became the BBC’s best-performing daytime quiz show.

He said: “I felt sure we hadn’t seen the last of that formidable bridge! Hosting this show, with all its jeopardy, tension and hilarious moments, was one of the most enjoyable parts of my year and I’m delighted that it’s been recommissioned by the BBC.

“The Bridge of Lies is tailor-made for a celeb version so I’m looking forward to putting teams of famous faces to the test. My main tip for them? No matter who you are or what you do, the bridge makes allowances for no one!”

The show sees teams of contestants competing for cash by crossing a bridge made up of steppingstones.

Each steppingstone has a different option, and the players must try to get from A to B by stepping on the truths and avoiding the lies, or risk falling off the bridge and out of the game.

Series two is currently looking for contestants to take part.

Gary Chippington, creative director of entertainment at STV Studios, said: “We were delighted by the reaction to the first series of Bridge of Lies from viewers and critics alike, and it’s fantastic that the BBC has so much faith in the format to not only commission another daytime series but a celebrity primetime version too.

“We can’t wait to get back into the studio in Glasgow with the incomparable Ross Kemp later this year.”
