Episode one sees 48 pairs of teams take part in auditions to select the eight teams who will take part in the competition. The final pairs range from 9-year-old friends, to a pair of adult fans of LEGO (aka AFOLs), girl cousins, mum and son, father and son, uncle and nephew, Cambridge University engineering students and 12-year-old pals. They all compete in one supersized challenge where teams are given the design brief in advance. For this week’s Planned Build, Brick Feast, the teams must create a spectacular LEGO banquet, which must include one seat and at least one supersized masterpiece for the table. The seat is judged equally on its aesthetics, scale, and its ability to take an adult’s weight which is put to the test by Melvin before the judges decide which two pairs will leave the competition. The first guest judge is multi-award winning structural engineer Roma Agrawal, best known for her work on The Shard.
