Voids are normally completely empty spaces, but good luck to ITV in redefining the English language as this void is a 520,000 litre pool of water in “one of the biggest bespoke water tanks ever constructed for a gameshow”. Look here’s the press release. Ashley Banjo (who has completely blocked hosting Can’t Touch This out of his mind apparently, and who can blame him) and Fleur East will be hosting.
This “physical gameshow with a difference” (difference to be determined) sounds a bit like The Cube meets Ninja Warrior over a water tank. And this sounds like Very Much The Sort Of Thing We Like!
However we must point out that we’ve got our “null and Void” and “A Void” gags ready prepared if it doesn’t land. FEAR ME, Gameface.
Incidentally apols for the Bar being down for most of the day (especially if you wanted to talk about the incredible episode of Belgian Mole that went out last night), it was the hosting end.
