Adam Adler, creator and executive producer for Objective Productions, said: "We've been fascinated with the idea of doing a slow motion gameshow based on human reactions for some time, so we're delighted to be making Reflex for the BBC."

EastEnders star Richie will guide contestants through games ranging from having to react as quickly as possible when fired into the air and falling through balloons, to diving through glass panels.

The most successful team will go into the final, where they can win up to £20,000.

Adler said: "We're creating a fun and entertaining test of human reactions times, covered by bespoke, state-of-the-art super slow-motion technology as well as new techniques which will allow viewers to see things never before captured in a gameshow."
