Ninja Warrior UK 3 was the third season of the ITV show: Ninja Warrior UK, featuring a redesigned course and an almost entirely new pool of competitors. Once again, the season was comprised of five Heats, two Semi-Finals and a four-stage Final. The first episode aired on the 31st of December, 2016.

The Heats

The Heats were run over five episodes with fifty contestants in each, with the top ten finishers per Heat progressing to the Semi-Finals. The competitors were ranked with a "furthest, fastest" system. Like in the first two seasons, the Heats featured no time limit.
