ITV's new show The Games will see 12 celebrity contestants battle it out in athletic competitions in hopes to be named the champion. 

As the six male and six female competitors will take to an athletics arena, the swimming pool, gymnasium, and velodrome.

Hosted by Holly Willoughby and Freddie Flintoff and Alex Scott as a trackside reporter and Chris Kamara as commentator the show has a star-studded packed cast from pop icons to soap legends.

Along with live coverage of the events, each episode will feature the celebrities' preparation as they’re taught the sports from scratch by some of the UK’s top coaches.
