The Hit List celebrity special to air next weekend


Husband and wife hosting duo Marvin and Rochelle Humes will present a very special celebrity edition of highly addictive music quiz The Hit List coming soon to BBC One.

The stars teaming up to compete in this exciting 45-minute episode, made by Tuesday’s Child Scotland, are comedian Susan Calman with BBC Radio 1 DJ Melvin Odoom; former footballer and rap star John Barnes with BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills and football pundit and presenter Chris Kamara with DJ and presenter Vick Hope.

Name that tune

The pressure is well and truly on for the celebrities, especially the DJs, to name as many hit songs and artists as possible for the chance to be crowned the champions and collect up to £10,000 for their chosen charities.

“We are so excited to have a celeb special of The Hit List coming soon!” Humes said

“Obviously Rochelle and I are on radio ourselves so to have three radio DJs on each team, Scott Mills, Melvin Odoom and Vick Hope is great because on paper they should absolutely smash it right?

“We also have Kammy, John Barnes and Susan Calman so it’s going to be an incredible show; expect loads of laughs and lots of fun!”

Celebrity edition

Karen Smith, Executive Producer at Tuesday’s Child Scotland, said: “Viewers already love playing along with The Hit List and shouting the answers at the telly and it will be even more satisfying in this celebrity edition.

“See if you can beat the DJs, after all it’s their job to know the answer but they are terrified that they won’t…”

Rachel Ashdown, Commissioning Editor for the BBC, said: “The Hit List is an addictive, cross-generational game show that brings the whole family together shouting answers at the telly on a Saturday night.

“This fun-filled celebrity edition will give BBC One viewers the chance to see if they are quicker than the stars when it comes to naming the songs under intense pressure.”

Episode two of The Hit List continues on Saturday 23 November at 6.15pm on BBC One.
