Superstars 2012

6:45pm Saturday 29 December on BBC ONE

Gabby Logan hosts this special revival of the popular sporting entertainment show, as 16 of Team GB’s medal-winning athletes from London 2012 compete for this legendary sporting accolade.

The Olympic heroes taking part are Alistair Brownlee, Jonathan Brownlee, Mo Farah, Robbie Grabarz, Michael Jamieson, Anthony Joshua, Andrew Triggs Hodge, Peter Wilson, Nicola Adams, Lizzie Armitstead, Laura Bechtolsheimer, Gemma Gibbons, Helen Glover, Katherine Grainger, Jade Jones and Christine Ohuruogu.

The athletes’ versatility and determination will be pushed to the max as they participate in eight different disciplines: on the track in the 100 metres and 800 metres, on the field in the javelin, in the pool in a 50-metre swim, and with a bow to test their archery skills. The sporting contestants will tackle a kayak race and use their cycling skills in a hill climb. Their efforts will culminate in a grand finale featuring the classic Superstars event – the gym tests.

Gabby will be joined by former Olympians Denise Lewis and Iwan Thomas as pundits, and London 2012 bronze-medallist swimmer Rebecca Adlington will act as a mentor to athletes in the swimming event.

Superstars 2012 is being produced for the BBC by IMG Media, part of IMG Worldwide. The Producer for IMG is Kate Robinson. The executives producers are Mirella Breda, Executive Editor Entertainment Commissioning for the BBC, Bob Massie for Massive TV and Rick Thomas for IMG.
