"Loose Women" star Saira Khan revealed earlier this week that she has signed up after being "shamed" by her 10-year-old son Zachariah when she initially turned it down.

Saira - who also has seven-year-old Amara with husband Steve Hyde - said: "They asked me to do it and I refused, "No, no, no, I'm too old, I'm going to fall, I'll injure myself and I haven't got the time# and my little boy said, "Have you heard yourself? What if I said I couldn't do my homework, it's too hard, I'm busy" - he shamed me into doing it, so I am doing it for my kids.

"I'm not doing it for the money, I'm doing it for my kids."

Brian McFadden, James Jordan, Gemma Collins and Richard Blackwood have all also confirmed they will be taking part in the next series.
