Michael McIntyre doesn't want A-Listers on The Wheel

The 46-year-old comedian has fronted the BBC One game show - which sees six famous faces, all experts in their chosen field, take a seat around a giant spinning wheel while helping members of the public answer questions for cash - since 2020 but explained that the show would "not work" if Hollywood stars like Daniel Craig were to sign up to appear.

He said: "The celebrities have to be of a similar standard. I don't know if the show would work with an international A-lister on it. If you had someone like Daniel Craig, I'm not sure it would work. It would be like when they have a big American star on a chat show and you have to hope they're having a good time."

The BAFTA winner has welcomed television favourites such as 'This Morning' presenter Alison Hammond, former 'TOWIE' star Gemma Collins and newsreader Dan Walker onto his programme and explained that he enjoys having people who television audiences "wouldn't expect" to see on a game show and revealed that guests often want to come back for a second turn.

He is quoted by The Daily Star newspaper as saying: "We get a really good cross-section. I like to have people who you wouldn't expect to see on a game show. The celebrities we've had really love it. They all want to come back."

Saturday's (12.11.22) episode of 'The Wheel' will feature BBC Sports host Clare Balding and TV chef Rustie Lee.
