Following complaints by two contestants over a lack of provision for their disabilities.
The contestants one of whom is blind and the other of whom is neurodivergent were promised audio descriptions for the questions which were not delivered. One minute before the show they were told there was no audio description and that their captain will instead have to explain everything. They both said this was very distressing and asked not to be named and later asked for the episode not to be broadcast. The BBC apologised to the individuals concerned.
The BBC agreed to this today.  (BBC News)
