Beat The Star Series 1 was hosted by Vernon Kay. Each episode features one very physically fit contestant battling against a celebrity athlete in a number of disciplines. The games include sports contests such as climbing, motorsport and ice hockey, puzzles and various other challenges. The contestant can make £50,000. If the celebrity wins, the jackpot rolls over to the next episode. IMPORTANT: Each episode begins with a recap of the previous episode showing the winner. Best to watch them in order.
The Series 1 celebrities are (1) Amir Khan, (2) Darren Gough, (3) Mark Foster, (4) Martin Offiah, (5) Kelvin Fletcher, (6) Greg Rudeski, (7) Martina Navratilova, (8) I'll leave this one as a surprise.
Only the first two episodes came for certain from TheBox. These are also the only two which remain on the tracker.
If you have them and can help seed, please put them into a folder called Beat The Star Series 1 and run a forced recheck against the new torrent. If you have others and believe they are the same, you'll need to change the name to conform to this torrent. Be sure to keep a copy elsewhere; if anything goes wrong, they are likely to be overwritten and corrupted.
Technical specs: Eps 1-4 are 640x368. Eps 5, 6, and 8 are 640x352. Ep.7 is 560x320. I've watched them all on a standalone player.
