Are you a Lego Master?

Do you or does someone in your house eat, sleep and breathe the LEGO bricks?

Is the LEGO MASTERS build room with over 1 million bricks your idea of heaven?

The producers of the popular Channel 4 series LEGO MASTERS are looking for a new bunch of imaginative building pairs to take part in a third series of the bold brick-building competition.

If you think you, a family member or a friend have the creativity, skill and imagination to be crowned Britain’s best amateur building team then please email

Applicants must be aged 9+ by 03/02/2019 in order to take part.
