DareDevil CBBC Programme

BBC CBBCA team from CBBC have been onsite for a couple of days at the National Diving & Activity Centre to film for a new TV Show called DareDevils.

The brand new CBBC show DareDevils puts families to the test to see what they are prepared to do to win unique prizes.

The DareDevil will research his contestant’s family and friends thoroughly, digging deep to uncover their passions, likes, dislikes, phobias and fears and will then craft a devilish dare for each individual. This is chaos and calamity with heart, testing whether contestants’ families will go that extra mile and face their fears to help them win a once-in-a-lifetime prize.

You’ll have to wait and see to find out what the ‘devilish dares’ were at the NDAC. However we’ll be sure to post on our Facebook Page and Twitter feed when the programme is screened.
