Celebrities Under Pressure is a Saturday night entertainment show which aired in the United Kingdom on ITV.

The show follows families allowing a celebrity to live with them for a week as they attempt to learn a new skill from their hosts. The celebrity's progress is followed through a video diary, before they are tested in a live studio situation. If successful, the celebrity will win a string of prizes for the family they stayed with, however, if they fail, the family goes home with nothing. The show relates strongly to an earlier ITV game show The Moment of Truth, which is the same concept, but with one member of the family, not celebrities.

The first two series were presented by Melanie Sykes, with Vernon Kay presenting the newer episodes.
