Stop everything! The Crystal Maze could be back with David Tennant as the host

The Crystal Maze is rumoured to be returning to our screens - with David Tennant as the host.

The classic game show will be rebooted with a celebrity special next month, 21 years after it was last on, reported The Sun.

And TV bosses apparently want former Doctor Who star David to take over the position formerly filled by Richard O'Brien and Ed Tudor-Pole.

A source said the series - which sees contestants taking on challenges in order to win "time crystals" - is still "remembered extremely fondly".

"Channel 4 are hoping to tap into that nostalgia and believe viewers will jump at the chance to finally take on the show's adventurous challenges themselves," added the insider.

And there is a massive thumbs up to having the former Time Lord as host.
