Gemma Collins will become a university professor for a new MTV reality show.

"ReFreshers Week presented by Strongbow" will see eight "students" embark on a journey discovering new places and trying out some challenges laid on by a star-studded cast of celebrity guests.

"The Only Way Is Essex" star Gemma is the subject of a presentation in one of the challenges, and after filming the show she has contacted the University of Essex about them teaching a degree all about her.

She said: "As a natural diva, I absolutely love being in charge as a professor and I'm considering speaking to the Uni of Essex about launching an official degree in GC.

"I didn't go to university, but this show really gives me a flavour for Freshers" Week and all the lols that come with it."

The five-part series will document the highs and lows of university life, with each episode featuring the group in a brand new city trying to balance everything from exploring their surroundings to cramming for an important task in a bid to emerge victorious at the end with a £25,000 cash prize.

Other stars lending their expertise include Charlotte Dawson, Ed Gamble, Kim Woodburn and Jodie Harsh.

The series will be hosted by "Friday Night Dinner" actor Tom Rosenthal, and he has promised viewers will be treated to "some absolute bozos".

He added: "I was honoured to be given the position of the Dean at ReFreshers University. Taking on such an esteemed role gave me a chance to educate, to mentor and to question my professional decision-making.

"Just like Freshers" Week style this show will introduce you to some great people, some fine people and some absolute bozos."

Emma Sherwood-Smith, Heineken UK's brand director of cider, said: "Refreshment is in Strongbow's DNA. It was most people's first drink of choice and reminds us of a time when things were more open and fun. And what better symbol of a time you felt most free than Freshers" Week?

"This is exactly why we teamed up with MTV to make "ReFreshers" Week". Our ultimate goal is to get everyone involved and give people the opportunity to relive those feelings and memories from our treasured twenties whether you went to University or chose a different path."

"ReFreshers Week presented by Strongbow" launches on Monday 24th September at 10pm on MTV.
