Strictly Come Dancing pro dancer Brendan Cole is one of eight celebs to have signed up for ITV’s new summer-time reality show Flockstars.


It will be more of a case of Baa Baa Baa than Cha Cha Cha for budding shepherd Brendan as he partners a dog called Hoggy to take on various sheepdog trial challenges in the series, which will be hosted by Gabby Logan.


Brendan’s rivals will include DJ Tony Blackburn, partnered by Bess; Birds of a Feather actress Lesley Joseph, who’s teaming up with Gyp; Place in the Sun presenter Amanda Lamb, who joins forces with Midge; and Coronation Street star Wendi Peters, who’s four-legged sidekick is called Bill.


The celebrity line-up, who’ll have to round up flocks of sheep, ducks and even geese, is completed by Paralympic dressage champion Lee Pearson, Fazer from N-Dubz and former Eternal singer Kelle Bryan.


The eight-week prime-time series will be shown later this summer. Sadly there’s no indication that Ben Shephard will be involved in the series!
