Remember The Farm, that classic early '00s reality show that saw the likes of Rebecca Loos, Vanilla Ice and Orville the Duck mucking out cow sheds?

Well, it's making a triumphant comeback and we now know which famous faces will be pulling on their wellies and heading to a coastal Sussex farm for ten days.

Celebs on the Farm will see farmer Chris Jeffery showing the ropes to eight celebrities, including TOWIE stars Bobby Norris and Megan McKenna, dancer Louie Spence and Gogglebox's Sandi Bogle.

Rounding out the line-up of stars are ex-Strictly professional dancer Gleb Savchenko, actress Lorraine Chase, British Judo Champion Ashley McKenzie and Ex on the Beach star Charlotte Dawson.

With presenter Stephen Bailey cheering them on, the celebs will get to take on a series of challenges like handling cows, sheep and alpacas, mucking out stables and carrying out the general farm maintenance.

The contestant who impresses Farmer Chris the most each day will be awarded with a coveted 'Best in Show' rosette, but after four days he'll start booting out the person whose performance hasn't been up to scratch.

And it doesn't sound like any of the contestants are all that prepared for the challenge.

Ashley, who describes himself as a "true city boy", says that he's more used to eating animal than looking after them. "When we're talking animals," he said, "I am eating these guys not feeding them."

As for Charlotte, she claims "mud and dirt is just not me", while Sandi admits that "the only time I have taken off my jewellery is if I have to look after a baby animal".

This should be a bit of a treat for them then...

Celebs on the Farm will air this summer on 5STAR.
