'Twas the run up to Christmas
And up in the snow
Celebrities compete in a brand-new show
For three days and nights
Skilled teams by their side
These warmly wrapped stars
Compete…. for pride.
It is Christmastime!
But who will do best
At building an igloo in this wintery test?
Who will emerge
As an ice artisan
And win the crown
For The Greatest Snowman?
Channel 4 and Southshore will bring some frosty cheer to screen this Christmas. Hosted by Sue Perkins The Greatest Snowman is a special one-off following a pack of celebrities as they travel to an Alpine resort to compete in an epic snow building competition.
With thousands of tonnes of snow and giant blocks of crystal-clear ice at their disposal, the celebrities will go head to head across three tough rounds that will test both their brain and brawn.
Supported by a crew of seasoned sculptors, engineers, and snow builders these stars will have to design and create some of the most extraordinary snow creations ever seen on TV.
Judged by experts, all will risk chilblains as they attempt to carve and construct incredible structures made from snow and ice. The competition will culminate in the ultimate snowy challenge where the famous faces will use all they have learned in each round to attempt to construct The Greatest Snowman!
