“It’s really fun, lively, silly, slapstick but there is a real competition. And They’re Off does highlight is that we’re all guilty of believing things are going go one way when we’re actually judging books by their covers!” said Ore Oduba who added: “We’re all guilty of this, especially when you’ve five celebrities from the worlds of sport and entertainment to chose from. You think you know who’s going to win and come out on top. The amount of times we have contestants out of the game from their judgements!”
