We’re excited to be hosting the upcoming ITV show, The Games! Over the next couple of weeks we will see activities taking place at several Better venues.
Contestants will include TV presenter Olivia Attwood, influencer and model Phoenix Brown, ex-Strictly pro and leading man Kevin Clifton, pop star Max George, song writer Chelcee Grimes, Harry Potter actor Josh Herdman, author, model and autism ambassador Christine McGuinness, Coronation Street actor Colson Smith, newsreader Lucrezia Millarini, musician and TV star Wes Nelson, Emmerdale actor Rebecca Sarker and actor Ryan Thomas, will go head-to-head in a range of sporting challenges for the new series.
Each of the six male and six female competitors will battle it out in the athletics arena, the swimming pool, gymnasium and velodrome putting their sporting prowess to the test in events from the 100-metere sprint to diving, racking up points on the medals table.
With presenters Holly Willoughby and Freddie Flintoff, The Games will also see former professional footballer and presenter Alex Scott as trackside reporter and former professional football player and presenter Chris Kamara as commentator.
There is an opportunity to join us live for these events with tickets available on a first come first serve basis. Simply head over to the Applause Store and claim your free audience tickets whilst they last!
Audiences will see the competition kick off at the iconic Lee Valley White Water Centre where celebrity athletes will battle the white water and each other - let’s hope they’re not afraid to get their hair wet. Contestants will then dive into an action-packed evening at the incredible London Aquatics Centre where celebrities take the plunge and go head-to-head in an epic diving competition - contestants will be trying to conquer both, a fear of heights as well as the leaderboard! The celebrities will then take to the velodrome track at the world-famous Lee Valley VeloPark before the final event at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre.
As a member of the live audiences you won't miss a thing with incredible views of this sporting drama hosted at some of the UK's most impressive venues! We look forward to welcoming you at one of our venues. If you’re not able to join us at our venues then you can catch them from Monday 9th May live on ITV at 9pm.
