New Show Pits Lego-Lovers Against Each Other To Find 'Master Of The Brick'
| Last updated
Who doesn't love Lego? As long as you never stand on a piece barefoot, it's the ultimate toy, isn't it?
You can use the brightly coloured bricks to make whatever you want. You're only limited by your imagination - or in my case, only limited to things that are cuboid or rectangular in shape because as much as I love Lego, I'm not very good at it.
However, if you fancy yourself as a bit of a Lego expert, then Channel 4 have the perfect show for you. Lego Masters is bringing together a bunch of brick-lovers to compete for the title of 'Master of the Brick'.
The show, which has been dubbed 'Bake Off for Lego', will be presented by Melvin Odoom, as well as celebrity Lego fans including Bill Bailey, Richard Osman and Dara O'Briain.

The show will also feature Matthew Ashton, who works for Lego, and Roma Agrawal, who helped create 95-storey skyscraper The Shard in London, and will see kids pitted against adults to become the best block builder in the UK.
The contestants take part in teams of two, so get ready for some serious in-fighting. The duos range in age from nine to mid-40s - seriously, there are way more adults competing on this show than you would think.
I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see some kids have their hearts broken on national TV.
The series will have four hour-long episodes with each one covering a different theme, a bit like Bake Off, such as 'transport', 'banquet' and 'a nature walk'. If there's a 'just loads of cubes' round, then I will be happy to help.
Steph Harris, the show's executive producer said: "This playful new format demonstrates that LEGO bricks are more than just a toy - or something to step on - and will appeal to the child in all of us, showcasing spectacular builds and inspire the next generation of artists, engineers, architects and builders."
'LEGO Masters' starts Thursday 24 August at 8pm on Channel 4.
