Amazing Greys sees young contestants take on some of the country’s most talented pensioners.
Hosted by Paddy McGuinness, this family show proves that age is just a number.  And on hand to encourage and represent the Greys as they battle the young pretenders is Angela Rippon.
Each of the Amazing Greys has an incredible talent which they have spent a lifetime perfecting.  Be it physical, mental or something completely unique to them, each will give their all as the contestants take them on.
The contestants will face a maximum of three Amazing Greys.  If they can beat two of the three, they’ll leave with £10,000.  If they don’t, they leave with nothing.
Paddy McGuinness said: “Amazing Greys proves that appearances can be deceptive as our contestants take on some of the UK’s most talented pensioners.  Be it sport, general knowledge or something completely unique our ‘golden oldies’ will give their all as the younger contestants take them on.”
Angela Rippon added: “The show will celebrate some of our most talented senior citizens and I’ll be there to cheer them on as they take on the younger contestants.”
