Bobby Norris and Louis Spence to star in Channel 5 show The Farm revamp

The dancer will get his hands dirty in the ten-part series to be aired on 5Star along with the Essex favourite.

Celebs on the Farm will see ten celebrities edure daily challenges of agricultural life.

A TV source told the Sun’s Bizarre TV column: “Everyone loves Bobby.

“And he’s a familiar face for Channel 5 having been on Celebrity Ghost Hunt. So he’s a guaranteed hit.

“Louis, well everyone knows what Louis is like. He’ll be dancing around the farm, getting muddy and will be as hilarious as ever.”

Earlier this month the Sun revealed Channel 5 was reviving the infamous show.

The 2004 and 2005 hit featured the likes of Vanilla Ice, Paul Daniels, Keith Harris and Orville The Duck.

And most notoriously it saw David Beckham’s former secretary Rebecca Loos had to "collect semen" from a pig for a task.

A TV source said: “Channel 5 is trying to distance the old show from this one but there will be a few viewers who tune in just to see if it’s similar. It’ll be a new ten part series on 5Star this year.

“They’re hoping for some top names to do team and individual challenges to see who can most closely replicate the characteristics of the best farmers — patience, passion, resilience, adaptability and, most importantly, hard work.

“They’ll have to impress two of the UK’s top farmers to win the show.”

Celebrities will sport wellies and waterproofs as they are woken up early ready for a day's hard work battling wet weather, unpredictable animals and long hours over ten programmes.

They will battle it out in team and individual challenges that will replicate the real life of a farmer.

It comes after Channel 5 launched its version of Countryfile, Springtime On The Farm last month.
