Ten celebrities have been training for weeks and the stage is now set - BBC One’s brand new Saturday night show, Tumble, kicks off this Saturday night.

Host Alex Jones presents a night of breath-taking performances by 10 brave celebrities. The judges are world-renowned Olympic gymnast Nadia Comăneci, London 2012 gymnastics medallist Louis Smith, MBE, Commonwealth Games gymnastics champion turned sports broadcaster Craig Heap and world-renowned aerial performer and choreographer Sebastien Stella.

Celebrities Carl Froch, Sarah Harding, Peter Duncan, Lucy Mecklenburgh, Amelle Berrabah, John Partridge, Ian ‘H’ Watkins, Emma Samms, Bobby Lockwood and Andrea McLean have been put through a gruelling training process and are ready to show the great British public what they can do. Each celebrity has been guided through the techniques of gymnastics and circus arts by a coach and pro partner. The pro partner will join their celebrity in each performance that they give, live on the show.

In this first episode of six, all 10 celebrities will perform show-stopping routines with their pro partners - five celebrities will do acrobatic floor routines and the remaining five will perform on the ‘aerial hoop’. The judges will score the celebrities on the quality of their performances and out of a maximum of 10.

Viewers will also be treated to an exclusive gymnastics performance, led by Louis Smith. Louis will be joined by five Team GB male gymnasts, including his London 2012 team mates, with whom he took the bronze medal in the men's artistic all-round competition.
