Also joining the line-up are EastEnders actor John Partridge, Lucy Mecklenburgh from The Only Way is Essex, Wolfblood actor Bobby Lockwood and Emma Samms, who starred in Dynasty.

Mr Motivator

Last week one of the competitors, exercise instructor Mr Motivator, had to drop out of the competition after dislocating his knee in rehearsals.

The 61-year-old, whose real name is Derrick Evans, landed awkwardly after performing a straddle vault during preparations ahead of a trial run of the show.

The One Show presenter Alex Jones is to host the Saturday night series.

Olympic champion Beth Tweddle will act as a mentor to those competing, fellow London 2012 Olympic Games medallist Louis Smith will be on the judging panel.

The other judges are Olympic gymnast Nadia Comaneci, Commonwealth Games gymnastics champion Craig Heap and cirque artist Sebastien Stella.

Ahead of the first show, the 10 celebrities have been training with professional partners and coaches to learn how to perform aerial and gymnastic skills.

The BBC has said they will use the to skills to provide "breath-taking performances that you'd expect from the department that also produces Strictly Come Dancing".

Tumble will start on BBC One from 9 August.
