Dubliners wanted for new BBC quiz show Bridge of Lies hosted by Ross Kemp

By Brian Dillon

Ross Kemp is on the hunt for “fun and determined” people in Dublin to apply to take part in The Bridge of Lies, a brand new game show coming to BBC One.

Promising high drama and high stakes that will "keep contestants on their toes", the series is due to start filming in Glasgow later this year and will broadcast in Spring 2022.

Hosted by the BAFTA Award winning actor and presenter, contestants will compete for cash by crossing a bridge made up of stepping stones across the studio floor.

Each of the stepping stones has a different option and players must step on the 'truths' to get from A to B. If they step on a false, they risk falling off the bridge and being knocked out of the game.

Speaking about the new show, host Kemp said: "It’s fair to say I’ve found myself in some dangerous situations in recent years, so I reckon I’m well-prepared for the jeopardy of The Bridge of Lies – but the big question is, are you?

"We’re looking for fun and determined contestants to join us in the studio for this exciting new quiz show. There’s even a chance you could head home with the cash jackpot, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it – literally.

"This show is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, and it’s sure to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for anyone taking part."

Producers are on the hunt for teams of four to get in tough and take part.

They said: "Whether you’re family, friends or colleagues – if you have bags of personality and can think outside of the box, apply now."

Any interested parties can apply by sending an email to TBOLCasting@stv.tv. Applications close on November 5th, 2021.
