What is LEGO Masters?
The new season of the hit LEGO-building show starts on Tuesday and once again follows eight teams of two through a series of creative challenges.
Take a look at the trailer for the new season here:
Melvin Odom returns to host the LEGO battle, as well as Head Judge Matthew Aston, LEGO Group’s Vice President of Design. This year there’s a new judge, as scientist and engineer at heart Fran Scott joins the panel.
Each week will also see a celebrity LEGO fan join in the fun, with guests including Johnny Vegas, Paddy McGuinness, Chris Ramsay, Rob Beckett and more.

LEGO Masters: The Details
In the first episode, the teams must each construct a 1.3m long bridge – without any prior planning. Will the bridges be strong enough for Melvin to drive a weighted remote-controlled dumper truck across each one? Will any (or all!) come crashing down?!
Once the bridge build is complete, the teams will then have to construct their own floor of the LEGO Masters skyscraper – before stacking each floor on top of each other in a nerve-wracking reveal.
