Keith Lemon and Joe Swash will appear on a celebrity version of 'Take Me Out'.
'Celebrity Juice' presenter Keith - alter ego of comedian Leigh Francis - and former 'EastEnders' star Joe will be joined by 'This Morning' presenter Matt Johnson on a Christmas special of the ITV dating show.
The three men will show off their skills in a bid to impress 30 single women, who have the power to turn off their lights and opt out of dating the contestants.
If they are successful they will win a date to the Isle of Fernando's - a secret destination where the show sends potential couples - if not they face the humiliation of being sent home alone.
The programme - hosted by Paddy McGuinness - has been commissioned for two further series, alongside spin off show 'Take Me Out: The Gossip'.
When the news of the renewal was announced, with the show due to return later this year, Paddy said: "I'm looking forward to warming up those winter nights with some hot dates."
As well as Keith, Joe and Matt, unlucky-in-love singer Olly Murs has also said he would like the opportunity to appear on the programme.
During a performance in Blackpool, he teased a band member about being single, then added: "We are in talks with Paddy McGuinness to get him on 'Take Me Out'.
"Obviously he's got to join the queue - I'm already at the front."
