Tumble (originally Let's Get Ready to Tumble)[2] is a British television show, featuring celebrities who take part in gymnastics to win the votes of the public. Learning sessions were given on the basics of gymnastics to the celebrities taking part. It is backed by British Gymnastics.[3] The trainers are the ones who trained Louis Smith and Beth Tweddle.[4]

The show is broadcast live on BBC One since 9 August 2014[5][2][6] and hosted by Alex Jones.[7] The judges were announced as Nadia Comăneci, Louis Smith, Craig Heap and Sebastien Stella. Tweddle will mentor the 10 celebrities during the series.[8]

Production[edit]

The television show was commissioned by Charlotte Moore and Mark Lindsay.[2] Katie Taylor, the controller of BBC entertainment and events, said: "One thing’s for certain, you can expect the celebs to be pushed out of their comfort zone in what is probably the most physically demanding show of its kind anywhere in the world."[2][9] BBC Worldwide has invested in the series. Charlotte Moore said: "Let's Get Ready to Tumble will see brave celebrity contestants sign up to the toughest live Saturday night TV challenge yet!"[2]

Couples[edit]

The celebrities taking part were announced on 13 June 2014.[10] On 25 July, it was announced that Mr Motivator had withdrawn from the programme after dislocating his knee, necessitating surgery. His professional partner Kerry Scotts withdrew as well.[11] On 28 July, it was confirmed that actor and presenter Peter Duncan was to replace Mr Motivator in the competition with his partner Kate McWilliam.[12]
