The new series of Celebrity Mastermind begins on BBC One next month, with 56 contestants taking on "the famous black chair" to raise money for charity.

Mastermind host Clive Myrie will be asking the questions when the series returns on Saturday, 5 February, and giving the answers on the night will be former England goalkeeper David James, comedian and actor Ellie Taylor, singer Antony Costa, and, says the BBC, "the most famous parish councillor in the country", Jackie Weaver.

"It'll be fun for viewers, though maybe less for our celebs," joked Myrie. "But win or lose, they'll be helping their favourite charities. So, bring it on!"
