eggie Yates has quit "Release The Hounds: Famous & Freaked".

The 34-year-old TV presenter will be replaced by former "Xtra Factor" star Matt Edmondson when the horror-themed ITV2 game show returns.

Matt said: "Having spent much of last year in the presence of Simon Cowell, I'm used to finding myself in terrifying situations, so I feel fully prepared to be taking on the challenge of hosting "Release The Hounds".

"I love the show, and have enjoyed watching it both on and behind my sofa in the last few years. I can't wait to scare the living quinoa out of a load of celebrities, and I'm currently in the process of trying to convince the producers to cast my West Highland Terrier, Oscar, as one of the "Hounds"."

Asif Zubairy, ITV's Commissioning Editor, Comedy and Entertainment said: "I'm delighted to say that the scariest gameshow on television is back where none of the contestants in the forest are safe. Hooray."

"Release The Hounds" is filmed in a remote forest from dusk through to the dead of night. Each episode sees a team of three celebrities experience some of the scariest challenges ever on TV. As the darkness falls, they must face horror themed mental and physical challenges aimed to truly push them to their limits and culminates in the participants being chased by dogs in the hope of winning a large cash prize. If they manage to escape the hounds, the money belongs to them.

The fourth series of the show will air later this year.
