The Weakest Link is a classic BBC1 show known for its bossy host Anne Robinson giving contestants her trademark “glare”, a raised eyebrow, and cutting remark should they displease her. 

It last aired in 2017 for a Children In Need special but the game show has been revived by BBC1 in time for its Christmas TV 2021 schedule and the new host is comedian Romesh Ranganathan, so it should be a whole lot kinder and pleasant for those competing in the studio than when Anne was in charge. Although we do accept she’s not quite so scary hosting Countdown on Channel 4 these days!

So here’s all we can tell you about The Weakest Link Strictly and Christmas Specials and the new BBC1 series hosted by Romesh Ranganathan…
