A cult Japanese series in which Spandex-clad contestants in hard hats try to hurl themselves though a series of holes in a wall is being adapted for the BBC.
The BBC said a production company, Talkback Thames, has bought the rights and was creating a series based on the original.
The adapted show, Hole in the Wall, involves two teams of celebrities in shiny, skintight catsuits attempting to contort their bodies through a moving hole in a wall.
A BBC spokeswoman added that if they failed, “they will fall into water”.
The British show is aimed at a family audience and its launch follows a successful pilot episode made last year.
The physical challenges change with each episode in the Japanese version, with guests being asked to take part in ever-more outrageous pranks. (see clip below)
