Show Discussion: Miranda’s Games With Showbiz Names

This is quite interesting, or at least more interesting than it might look, it’s actually a version of Celebrity Game Face, a show developed for NBC’s online operation, where Kevin Hart challenged celebs to play silly games remotely.

Now Miranda Hart’s doing it with Shirley Ballas and partner Danny Taylor, Jermaine Jenas and his wife Ellie and Robbie Williams and his drummer Karl Brazil.

Together they play a host of games – from stuffing sprouts in their mouths, and nailing viral dance moves, to dashing round their houses on a hunt for mystery items.

The competitive spirit abounds, not least because the winning team get to proudly lay their hands on Miranda’s hefty bust – a glimmering and enviable trophy sculpted in her image.

The Main Event lives! Might be mildly good fun, and only half an hour to boot. Let us know what you think in the comments.

      If ever there was a time to give The Button another go, I can’t help but think the last nine months is probably it.

    I can’t say this did much for me to be honest, like a crap version of Schlag den Brig meets I’ll Get This. Not especially much of Miranda being Miranda, the best/funniest bits were the celebs being offhand, as these things tend to be.

    However, my Mum is a pretty decent barometer and enjoyed it, so make of that what you will.

    This felt pretty weak to me. It rattled along at a decent pace, but somehow felt slow, or at least full of a surprising quantity of filler considering how much content there actually was. The last game was enjoyable, though surprisingly cavalier in terms of health and safety; the rest felt extremely familiar and bereft of interesting ideas. On the plus side, the booking of guests was a cut above what I would have expected, with Robbie Williams a fairly impressive catch.
