Reading the piece it seems it's the usual, let's pick someone with Jamaican heritage and send them to Jamaica, someone with South African heritage, send them to South Africa, someone with Irish heritage, send them to Ireland.   :)

frostyknight - the JLS guy is always on TV nowadays, as a presenter or similar.

He must appear on progs I don't watch so. Though I've not been looking at much tv lately. Looking forward to all the episodes.

He seems quite a nice guy.  Married to Rochelle one of the Saturdays (a female singing group).

When I look back at the series participants, I think there has been a good coverage of genuine celebs, hardly 'a weather man, eight small parts and a widow twanky' in sight, as Fletcher once described a visiting team of 'celebrities' to play soccer with the Slade inmates in Porridge:

Looking back at the names in previous series, sad that Brucie (S7 / 2010) is no longer with us and that Barbara Windsor (S3 / 2006) has gone downhill in recent weeks. 

But I'm definitely looking forward to this new series, hopefully it will engage the old grey matter in the otherwise lazy UK summer TV schedules.

Looking forward to it even though the only ones I know are Olivia Colman and Boy George.  :)

Yawn! I've heard some of the names but, if you showed me their photographs, I doubt whether I'd be able to name any of them. That said, if you showed them a photo' of me, I'm sure they'd have no idea who I was and, just like me, wouldn't care.

As a format, it's getting a bit dated and it's perhaps as well that, at last, they're getting round to ordinary people nobody's heard of. I just hope that they don't try to appear famous.
