BBC have announced the one-off return of their cult TV show 'Superstars' and a host of Team GB heroes have signed up to take part.

The multi-sport event was a television staple on the Beeb in the 70s and 80s and all 16 of the competitors in this latest incarnation won medals at the London Olympics

Household names such as Mo Farah and Christine Ohuruogu will take part as the contenders have to negotiate a series of tricky events.

There will be eight disciplines in total ranging from running to swimming to archery and the event will conclude with the famous Superstars 'gym tests.'

The event will be broadcasts on the BBC over Christmas and is being hosted by Gabby Logan.

"Superstars is going to be a lot of fun. I'm really looking forward to it. After a hard season it will be nice to compete in a different environment," said double Olympic champion Mo Farah.

"Some of the events are quite new to me which will make it all the more interesting."

The eight events are: 100m, 800m and javelin on the track; swimming (50m); archery;kayak racing; cycling hill climb and the gym tests.
