The Sun is reporting that The Weakest Link is being revived for a Children In Need special this November, with talks of a full-time return in 2018 for Saturday nights (a celebrity version rather than civilian). Anne Robinson is due back also.

I used to enjoy The Weakest Link back in the day, so wouldn't mind seeing it back!

Would you like to see it back?

Omg YES, I was saying to my housemate earlier we need more quizzes like that and The Chase. The fast paced ones you can play along with that feel really rewarding but easy to watch and get hooked on laugh.gif I love the format, I think it's the sort of fun entertainment we need on a Saturday night now that talent shows have somewhat burned themselves out and it's hard for new ones to get off the ground. It would 100% have to be Anne back though, she IS the show.

definitely. they should axe Tipping Point and replace it with The Weakest Link (I know they're on different channels but let me dream).

I always enjoyed the Weakest Link,one of the best quiz shows. Ann was legendary on it with some of her comments.

I think celebs suit a Saturday night quiz show a bit more, it makes it more light hearted and it's nice they compete for charity etc., whereas daytime is a bit more tense and something to escape to after work or school or whatever.

Exactly this!!! Especially in the 1st round if they get to 1000 and the person forgets. Happened once and they got it right and it was ok but another time it happened and they got it wrong. drama.gif

THIS! Nobody is here for Babushka or Red or Black or (to a lesser extent) Tipping Point, I just want a show like The Chase and this where you can shout out the answers laugh.gif I don't know WHY they think a complex format is going to draw in viewers when literally people only watch it to play along (and a bit of banter with Anne and the contestants laugh.gif)
