Krypton Factor to make a comeback?

"The Krypton Factor, which put contestants through rigorous physical and mental tests, was a fixture in the ITV schedule from 1977 to 1995. Wayne Garvie, head of the BBC's Entertainment Group, described it as "one of the great shows"...[and] is credited with successfully reinventing Come Dancing."
