Vic Reeves and Natasia Demetriou are to present a Netflix competition series in which teams create huge flower installations.

Eight hour long episodes of The Big Flower Fight will launch on Netflix in May.

Producers say: "Reeves and Demetriou will bring a healthy dose of humour to the new Netflix original series, The Big Flower Fight. The eight-part series sees ten creative teams square off in a larger-than-life contest to create huge flower installations, with Reeves and Demetriou on hand to give the contestants some moral support.

The teams' work will be judged by florist Kristen Griffith-VanderYacht, who has been named as a Top Florist in the World by Harpers Bazaar for two consecutive years (2019, 2020) and has established himself as one of the leading creative voices in the floral design industry. Kristen will be joined by a guest judge each week to help him pick the winner.

Vic Reeves says: "I had the most wonderful summer watching immense floral sculptures emerge from nothing with my favourite co presenter Tash."

Natasia Demetrou will also be seen on BBC Two soon, in a second series of What We Do In The Shadows and new sketch show Ellie & Natasia. She comments: "Working with Vic Reeves in a beautiful English field surrounded by loads of chicken wire - it's every person's dream job."

Talking further about the format, the producers say: "Every episode will test a different set of skills and feature a unique challenge - the teams are tasked with building a larger-than-life sculpture, competing to design and build the biggest, most outlandish and beautiful works of art possible from flowers and other natural materials and staving off elimination for one more week. With a conservationist theme, the participants are encouraged to think about plants which give back to the environment - such as pollinating, insect-friendly species.

"The overall winner of The Big Flower Fight will claim the honour of designing their own sculpture to be put on display in London's Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew."

The Big Flower Fight will be available on Netflix from Monday 18th May.
