Mel Giedroyc, one half of comedy duo Mel & Sue, singer and So Solid member Lisa Maffia, actor Jonathon Morris, former 'Brookside' actor Philip Olivier, Liberty X's Kevin Simm, TV presenter Anna Walker and polo player Princess Tamara Czartoryski-Borbon are also lined up to star in the show.

The celebrities will be trained by professionals for three months in Olympic sports including the high dive, speed-skating, gymnastics and, for the first time this series, sumo-wrestling, rowing, water-ski jumping and trampolining.

Cameras will follow them every step of the way and four training documentaries charting their progress will be broadcast on Channel 4 and E4 in the run-up to the live event.

Last year, Lady Isabella Hervey won the women's title and former Boyzone member Shane Lynch won the men's competition.
