oman Kemp is to host the new series of "Takeshi's Castle"

The 25-year-old presenter will be joined by one of his celebrity friends for each episode of the cult gameshow to provide commentary on the attempts of the challengers to overcome various obstacles and storm the castle.

Among those confirmed to be joining Roman on the show are his father, Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp, and his "Capital Breakfast" co-presenter Vick Hope.

Comedians London Hughes, Stephen Bailey and Lauren Pattison have also signed up, as have "Made in Chelsea" star Georgia "Toff" Toffolo, former "Love Island" hunk Chris Hughes and "The Only Way is Essex" couple Tommy Mallet and Georgia Kousoulou.

The show returns to Comedy Central next month and network bosses think the changes will make for a better show than ever.
