While the celebs may not be facing Bushtucker Trials, they will instead get to compete whilst dressed head to toe “in extravagant and utterly bonkers outfits”.

They will be singing their hearts out for the panel Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan.

The judges - and viewers watching at home – will then have to try to guess who is inside the elaborate jungle-themed costumes.

One new twist will see host Joel Dommett tasked with hunting down those all-important clues for the panel.

Fans met the announcement with excitement and said they would be tuning in before watching the likes of Boy George, Olivia Attwood and Chris Moyles make their way into the jungle camp.

One tweeted: "I can’t wait. I need to watch this before I watch I’m A Celebrity."
