Aston Merrygold and J.B. Gill are to star on 'The Million Pound Drop Live'.
The JLS singers will team up on the Channel 4 game show - which is hosted by Davina McCall - in an attempt to win money for their charity, the JLS Foundation, which is in conjunction with Cancer Research UK.
Former 'Dragons' Den' star Hilary Devey and Radio 1 DJ Greg James will also join forces on the programme for their chosen charities the Stroke Association and the Carers Trust.
The celebrity pairings will aim to keep hold of £1 million by betting the cash on the correct answers to seven questions, but it is going to be tougher than ever to reach the final question this time around.
In a new twist players can risk their money on one last question for a chance to double their winnings and walk away with a life-changing amount of cash for their charities.
Teams of four are also permitted to take part in the programme for the first time ever.
What's more, viewers are also able to play with a virtual £1 million alongside the contestants with the online game or with 'The Million Pound Drop' mobile app.
