The BBC has announced a brand new entertainment show for Saturday nights called That Puppet Game Show.

The show sees the BBC’s in house entertainment section join forces with The Jim Henson Company for a programme which combines the world of puppet comedy and madcap games.

The show will be hosted by puppet Dougie Colon (pronounced cologne) and will see top-name celebrities go head-to-head in a number of games hoping to win £10,000 for their chosen charity.

They'll compete in subjects such as sport, science, celebrity, nature, music and mental agility.

That Puppet Game Show is the first gameshow to also include a backstage sitcom. It features all the puppet characters which have appeared onstage and more, like the producer Mancie and the bullish show executive, Udders McGhee.

Host of That Puppet Game Show, Dougie Colon, says: “I can’t wait to get stuck in to the new show. We have a whole host of celebs joining us and I can honestly say that they will have never have seen anything like this before!”

Celebrities that will be taking part in the show include Gary Lineker, Claudia Winkleman, Vernon Kay, Katherine Jenkins, Freddie Flintoff and Tess Daly.

Filming is currently underway and That Puppet Game Show will debut on BBC One later in the year.
