Apocalypse Wow returns to ITV2 with new host and celebrity line-up | TV

Apocalypse Wow returns to ITV2 this summer with its second series – here’s everything you need to know!

Set in the Torture Dome – an outrageous secret underground club that’s part BDSM dungeon, part fight club – Apocalypse Wow sees a group of celebs face off against superhuman bosses in a series of insidious physical challenges.


The new series of Apocalypse Wow begins Friday 24th June 2022 and welcomes new presenter, Radio 1 DJ and Love Island: The Morning After presenter Arielle Free.

Arielle joins Donna Preston, who returns to take on the role of “Mistress.”

Arielle Free said: “I can’t wait for everyone to see us put our favorite celebs through their paces in the craziest and most brilliant challenges.

“Those who fail get beaten by their former teammates while dressed up as human-sized chicken piñata — obviously.”

Apocalypse wow line up

Celebrities joining the second series line-up include world champion boxer Amir Khan, musician Tinchy Stryder, real-life housewife Tanya Bardsley and Ibiza Weekender’s David Potts.

They will be joined by comedians Luke Kempner and Harriet Kemsley, presenter Yasmin Evans and Love Islanders Eyal Booker and Samira Mighty.

A teaser reads: “In each episode, a team of four celebrities enter the dome to take on the terrifying superhuman ‘bosses’ of The Mistress.

“As well as memorable returnees like Hot Slippy Jesus, The Belly and Pole Cat, The Mistress has crossed the ranks with Tiny Iron (owner of Britain’s largest bicep), Cupid Stupid (a surly, arrow-wielding love god), the Locksmith (a shocking escape artist) and Pandora (a wild wrestler).

“The team must unite to defeat these extraordinary opponents by challenging them in a series of ridiculous and entertaining physical challenges. Alone, the celebrities would be demolished, but together they have a chance to defeat a series of insane competitors to win the day and take home a ton of cash for charity.

“In each episode, The Mistress will decide who the weakest celebrity is and they will be placed in the human pinata covered with all the money the celebrities won in that episode. Her teammates will knock the money off their pal, who will then be banished before a new celebrity enters the Torture Dome to join the team.”


The new series starts June 24 at 10pm on ITV2 and the ITV Hub.
