Hungry Bear Media has been asked for clarification on whether the new show features McIntyre. Update to follow.

In the comedian’s latest creation The Wheel, contestants work with seven celebrities elected as experts in a certain field to answer questions.

The celebrities sit in chairs mounted to 13-metre wide wheels on the main stage, while three contestants sit in chairs on a smaller wheel. These are spun to choose a contestant and expert at random.

The show is currently in its fourth-series and the remaining five episodes will air on BBC One from February 24 to March 23.
