Don't Rock The Boat

Craig Charles returns to reality TV.

21 August, 2020

Whether he's eating dog food straight from the can, braving the perilous climate of Rhyl beach, or just generally being brave in a hostile universe, Craig Charles has never been one to shy away from enduring the tougher experiences that a life in television production has to offer. In fact, it seems like only yesterday he was regaling us with stories about the hardships involved in the making of Red Dwarf.

Wait a minute, it was.

Don't Rock The Boat

But if a fully comprehensive three part retrospective documentary doesn't contain all the Craig Charles you could possibly need, you'll be delighted to learn that he is already planning his latest ordeal; this time swapping the perils of outer space for the trials and tribulations of the British coast. We'll let ITV explain it themselves:

Twelve celebrities will take part in the challenge of a lifetime, to row the entire length of Britain, in ITV's brand new, epic adventure series Don't Rock the Boat.

The 5 x 60 minute series will see twelve famous faces step out of their comfort zones and onto their sea legs as they compete in one of the toughest shows ever filmed on both land and sea.

The celebrities setting sail are British politician and author Tom Watson, sports presenter and Olympic gold medalist Denise Lewis OBE and English supermodel and broadcaster Jodie Kidd. Actor Craig Charles, singer-songwriter Fleur East, YouTuber Joe Weller and Love Island winner Jack Fincham are also confirmed. Coronation Street actress Lucy Fallon, Olympic, World and European Champion Victoria Pendleton CBE, The Chase's Dark Destroyer Shaun Wallace, actor and presenter Adam Thomas and International girl group, The Pussycat Dolls, member Kimberly Wyatt complete the line up.

Don't Rock the Boat will push the twelve celebrities, split into two teams of six, to their physical and mental limits as they battle it out to complete over 500 grueling miles. The two teams will also face a series of jaw dropping on-shore challenges to secure vital advantages over their opposition, and each will have to call on all their individual reserves and team resources to conquer this 'oar-inspiring' challenge.

We'll bring you more news when we have it, but in the meantime, best of luck Craig. We'll be rooting for you when the show airs later this year.

Make sure you follow Craig on Twitter. Rumour has it he's dropping a few clues about what he's up to. Just don't tell anyone we sent you.
