Stephen Bailey to host Channel 5's Celebs On The Farm

First presenting job for the stand-up

Stand-up Stephen Bailey is to host the revival of Channel 5’s reality show Celebs On The Farm.

The show will follow eight personalities as they spend ten days on a Sussex farm tending to animals and carrying-out farming duties.

Taking part are Towie’s Bobby Norris, country singer Megan McKenna, Dancing on Ice judge Louie Spence, Sandi Bogle from Gogglebox, glamour girl Charlotte Dawson, ex-Strictly professional dancer Gleb Savchenko, actress Lorraine Chase and British judo champion Ashley McKenzie.

Bailey tweeted this morning: ‘I’m so so excited I could burst! But I can FINALLY tell you that I have my first presenter job - I am the new host of a brand new reality show COMING SOON called CELEBS ON THE FARM.’

The new series comes 13 years after Channel 5 last aired the format, then simply called The Farm, which implanted the memory of David Beckham’s former PA Rebecca Loos masturbating a pig into the national consciousness. 

Channel 5 say: ‘Encouraged by presenter Stephen Bailey, our ‘townies’ will face some gruelling challenges, handle cows, sheep, alpacas, chickens and get their hands dirty mucking out and carrying-out maintenance.’

The show will run over ten nights, with celebrities voted out from day 4.
