Vernon Kay's new game show has revealed its celebrity line-up, including an I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! reunion.

Airing on Saturday (April 10), Game of Talents features a number of incredible performers with contestants having to guess what their talent is to scoop a big cash prize, with a helping hand from some celebrity guests.

The Masked Dancer duo Oti Mabuse and Joel Dommett will be appearing on the show, as will RuPaul's Drag Race judge Michelle Visage and Spice Girl Mel B, presenter Jonathan Ross and comedian Katherine Ryan, presenters Emma Willis and Stephen Mulhern, and Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw and Clara Amfo.

Vernon's wife Tess Daly will also take part with Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood, and I'm a Celeb winner Giovanna Fletcher will join campmate Jordan North.

Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy about the show, Vernon said: "It's a great format, a brilliant show and I'm not just saying that because I'm hosting it!

"It really is a fun, interactive, subversive gameshow and I couldn't turn it down. If someone else hosted it I'd be gutted because it's just so good.

"It's definitely play-along. It's one of those where people will be commenting on social media and guessing what the talent is.

"But also the reaction of the celebrities and our contestants – because some of them are pretty obvious and some are far from obvious – and I think it's some of those reactions that are just as entertaining as the reveals of the talents. There's so much to talk about."

Hinting at the talent that can be expected, he continued: "Because there's loads of them, the best thing for me to say is think of all the weird, the wonderful and the wacky from Britain’s Got Talent and every holiday camp act that you’ve ever seen – that's what we've got on the show.

"We've got circus acts, we've got end of the pier acts, we've got people that do things for a hobby, part-time acts, bizarre acts, strange acts, there's absolutely everything that comes through those doors.

"If you're stood at a bus stop, you wouldn't guess that someone is a sword swallower, a ventriloquist or a contortionist just by looking at them in their daywear, and that’s what makes the game show element so good."

Game of Talents starts this Saturday (April 10) at 7.30pm on ITV.
