Set to air next year on UKTV’s Dave channel, each star is locked in an empty box for 24 hours – with only just a toothbrush and toilet.

Comedian Jimmy Carr will present the series, as the contestants battle for floor space – but the more rounds they lose, the smaller their box becomes.

And The Sun can exclusively reveal former EastEnders actor Joe Swash has signed up for the show.

He spent the night away from wife Stacey Solomon and their five children for the box’s cold floor.

The lineup also includes TV presenter and former Strictly Come Dancing star Ellie Taylor.

Expectant mum Ellie, 39, had wowed producers as she took on the challenges despite being heavily pregnant.

Made In Chelsea’s Jamie Laing also gave up his everyday luxuries and plush pad for the box.

Comedians Katherine Ryan and Seann Walsh are also taking part.

During their time in the box they’ll battle for everyday items such as a bed, table and chairs and other home comforts.

Late Night Mash presenter Rachel Parris also competed following the satirical’s axing earlier this year.

Drifters star Jessica Knappett, Friday Night Dinner’s Tom Rosenthal and Outsiders’ Fatiha El-Ghourri all make their telly returns too.

The show is awash with comics as Guz Khan, Josh Jones, Nabil Abdulrashid, Harriet Kemsley, Josh Pugh, Lara Ricote and Amy Gledhill complete the lineup.
