The host city for the 2020 Olympics has been announced, along with a new way of choosing competitors - random selection.
Olympicked! follows eight members of Team GB as they discover their fates and learn their allotted sports.
Gary hopes that he won't end up in prison like his brother. The Olympics could save him from a life of crime - but only if he can learn to ride a horse.
Betty is a fun-loving pensioner who lives life to the full. But is the Olympics too much for her to handle?
Susan is desperate to have a baby and can't bear anything to stand in her way. Will the Olympics help or hinder her quest for motherhood?
A downtrodden solicitor's wife, an eternally optimistic out-of-work actress, a loving father, a partying gay man, and an alcoholic civil servant also find themselves on the path to the Olympic stadium.
But will they all make it to the competition, and can any of them achieve Olympic Gold?
