One of the catfish among the group is former Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby, who is playing as Mysterious Girl singer Peter Andre.

Speaking ahead of the series launch, Charlotte said: "Do you know what? I think, because I'm going into it as someone else, I think I am a little bit worried that I might slip up. I'm worried about what if I can't play the game as good as I think I can. I just don't want to be kicked out."

How does Charlotte Crosby know Peter Andre?

Charlotte doesn't know Pete well, but the pair have met a few times.

She said: "I've met Peter Andre a couple of times. I mean, we're not friends, but who doesn't like Peter Andre? He won Dad of the Year about 75 years in a row. How can you not like Dad of the Year? I'm here and I need to pick someone who everyone likes."

And when asked whether she was worried his friends might be on the show, she added: "I'll actually freak out. What am I going to do? This is my main worry. What if someone's like, 'Oh Pete, remember when we were at such and such?' What am I going to say? Like what can I say?

"I can't remember. I must have too much to drink that night."

"But I don't think he's a big drinker. I need to think of a plan."

Charlotte continued: "I think I'm just going to try and be friends with everyone. Pete is very positive, like if someone was feeling down, he'd be the one to cheer you up. He's good with his words, he's a bit of a shoulder to cry on. I think he's a big morale booster, isn't he? So I think that's what I want to try and be. I don't think I can cause mischief as Peter Andre, because people are going to suspect something's off. He’s not a mischief maker."
