The Big Spell

Much more than a traditional spelling bee, The Big Spell is packed with jaw-dropping drama and incredible emotion as these brilliant young spellers compete in a range of challenges based around spelling, words and meanings.

Across the eight-part series, audiences will get to know all about these super-smart, funny and adorable young spellers as they experience the highs and lows of the competition with their parents looking on from backstage.

Sue Perkins will host proceedings as the children show off their impressive spelling and language prowess; Comedian Joe Lycett will be backstage with the parents balancing the tension of the competition with his own inimitable humour; whilst broadcasting legend Moira Stuart will be officiating as the show's pronouncer.
