A new balloon art reality series, Blow Up, is coming to Seven and 7plus, and the network has shared a first look at what’s to come.

Hosted by acclaimed actor Stephen Curry and comedian Becky Lucas, alongside resident balloon expert Chris Adamo and a host of celebrity guest judges, Blow Up will see the nation’s greatest balloon artists, decorators and twisters go head-to-head across a variety of challenges to turn ordinary balloons into works of art.

When the series was announced at Seven’s 2023 upfronts in August last year, Seven’s chief content officer, entertainment programming, Angus Ross, said: “Blow Up is a breath of fresh air for Australian television. It has the wow factor, heart and humour that we know will captivate families around the country as they discover the astounding world of balloon artistry.”

Endemol Shine Australia’s chief executive officer, Peter Newman, said: “Blow Up will take Australian families into a brilliant new world bursting with joy, fun and supersized balloon sculptures that must be seen to be believed.”

Stephen Curry said: “Blow Up is a celebration of artistry, skill, design and unbridled imagination. I’m so incredibly excited to be embarking on this bonkers adventure with Becky and these exceptionally talented artists, which is sure to remind me once again of my distinct lack of any discernible skills whatsoever.

“Rest assured, this is not ‘balloon animals and pirate swords’ – this is full scale, high-art balloon sculpture. These artists are the Thoroughbreds of the Inflatable Arts.”

Becky Lucas said: “There is something very exciting about being involved in showcasing the talents of these balloon artists. I can’t wait to platform the insanely talented people who dedicate their lives to a fairly unknown art form purely for the joy of it. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen.”

Blow Up is an Endemol Shine Australia (a Banijay company) production for the Seven Network.

Blow Up is coming soon to Seven and 7plus.
