Do you have what it takes to complete TV’s toughest obstacle course?

TV producers are searching for contestants to take part in the UK-version of Ninja Warrior.

The prime time Saturday night ITV series challenges contestants to complete a super sized obstacle course.

Now, producers are looking for people from across Norfolk, to take part.

The format is a smash hit in USA, Sweden, Malaysia and Japan and the UK Version, hosted by Ben Shephard, Rochelle Humes and Chris Kamara has been on ITV since 2015.

A spokesman for the show said: “No contestant so far has conquered the whole course, so we’re looking for people who really love taking on a challenge.

“The entertainment series is the ultimate test of strength, speed and courage and viewers will watch as contestants are pushed to their limits trying to complete TV’s toughest challenge.

“Contestants from all walks of life ranging from ‘Have a Go Heroes’ to ‘Superhuman Athletes’ are invited to take on the challenges of the course. Viewers will be entertained by both those who can superbly execute the course to those who spectacularly fail, crashing out of the course into the water below. Each part is laden with jaw-dropping challenges, heart-stopping excitement and adrenaline-fuelled action as the contestants attempt to complete three punishing and potentially hilarious stages.”

Applications are open until June 2. To enter go to:
