To ensure the show remains true to its brilliant roots, the set is being designed by the original Crystal Maze designer, James Dillon.
Tom Beck, head of Live and Events at Channel 4, said: “The Stand Up to Cancer special was so brilliant and so successful that commissioning a series of The Crystal Maze was almost a no-brainer. And I couldn’t be more pleased and excited that Richard has agreed to become the new Maze Master - he’s an inspired choice.”
The show will run at an hour-long for 20 episodes later this year.
