Nickelodeon UK to Premiere 'Double Dare' on Monday 22nd October 2018


Nickelodeon UK & Ireland is bringing back the original kids’ game show Double Dare, starting Monday, 22nd of October 2018 at 4:00pm – giving a new generation of fans the chance to compete in the messiest and most physically challenging competition of their lives. With Double Dare remaining an iconic touchstone for its original millennial audiences, the new version will feature the gameplay and challenges they remember, as well as appearances from blasts from the past and stars from today. Following launch, new episodes will continue to air weekdays at 4:00pm ET/PT, with same day encores at 8:00pm.

Double Dare features two teams competing to win prizes by answering brain-bending trivia questions, completing messy, physical stunts and ultimately facing the infamous obstacle course–the human hamster wheel; the classic gigantic mouth; the wringer; and the iconic Double Dare nose.
