Watch: First look as the Derry Girls prepare to take on the Crystal Maze

The cast of hit Channel 4 comedy Derry Girls are set to take on the Crystal Maze.

The programme is currently in the middle of a run of celebrity specials, and this Friday will feature an appearance from Jamie-Lee O'Donnell, Louisa Harland, Nicola Coughlan, Dylan Llewellyn, and their team captain Saoirse Monica Jackson.

A Channel 4 spokesperson confirmed the crew would be "upping the 1990s nostalgia" by with their appearance in the classic game show.

The Crystal Maze originally ran from 1990 to 1995, being revived in 2016 for a one-off charity special presented by Stephen Merchant, and brought back as a full series in 2017 with IT Crowd star Richard Ayoade taking the helm as Maze Master.

In a similar style to the original programme, the contestants navigate their way through challenges in 'Aztec', 'Medieval', 'Futuristic', and 'Industrial' zones.
