Superstars 'Set To Return To TV In Wake Of Olympics'
Show could return as early as next March as part of Comic Relief...
Superstars could be set to make a return to the small screen as the BBC rush to capitalise on Olympic fever following the success of the London games.
And The Sun reports that the hit 1970s and 1980s show - which saw athletes from different sports competing in a range of disciplines - could be back as early as March as one of the main features of Comic Relief.
Double gold medal winning runner Mo Farah, world conquering heptathlete Jessica Ennis and track cycling demigod Sir Chris Hoy have all been mentioned by the paper as possible competitors on the show from Team GB.
A source said: "The BBC want to harness the appeal of Team GB and has agreed Superstars is the best way to do it.
"The programme will showcase their skills but will be a bit quirky. How will Mo Farah get on in Chris Hoy's cycling shoes? Can Jessica Ennis add another skill to the seven she already has?"
Bosses at Comic Relief are claimed to have already begun talks with sports media firm IMG, which holds the rights to the show. It has even been suggested that the new show could be filmed in the Olympic Park.
The original Superstars ran in the UK from 1973 until the early 80s - and was briefly resurrected in the noughties.
