Goldie and Les Dennis are among those reported to be taking part.

According to reports, they will be joined by Caprice, former Take That star Mark Owen and Mel Giedroyc, one of half of the comedy duo Mel and Sue.

Producers are thought to be looking for a replacement for former Coronation Street star Denise Welsh, who had to pull out when her son fell ill, reports Media Guardian.
