Len Goodman’s Partners In Rhyme a play-along family show all about rhyming, premieres on BBC One on Saturday 19 August at 6.45pm
The first episode in this brand-new series sees contestants Winston and Yve joined by four celebrities hoping to help solve a range of rhyming rounds. In the first team are Strictly’s Anton du Beke and BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ Dotty, and in the second team are EastEnders actress Laila Morse and comedian and radio presenter Matt Richardson.
Yve and Winston first go head to head in quick fire animated rhyming round, at the end of which the one with the most points gets first pick of the two celebrity teams, and then it’s on to three rounds of hilarity!
In Mime the Rhyme, Dotty and Matt describe a celebrity whilst Anton and Laila mime a rhyming action – and with Anton putting his can-can skills to use, the competition is tough. But the real question is, who would win rear of the year in a contest between him and Len?
Next, it’s on to Rhymewatch where the teams attempt to identify all the rhyming pairs within a short film starring Mr Motivator. Finally, it’s time for News At Len, where the teams must guess the rhyming headline in four fictional news stories.
The contestant with the most points after these rounds goes on to play Rhyme Against Time, where they must solve six 3-part rhymes against the clock in order to win a holiday. The losing contestant doesn’t go home empty handed though, they leave with the coveted consolation prize of a Pen from Len.
The question is, who will be rhyming masters and who’ll be rhyming disasters?
Len Goodman’s Partners In Rhyme Episode 1 (of 6) airs on Saturday 19 August 2017 from 6.45pm-7.20pm on BBC ONE.
