A new reality show called 'Driving With The Stars' is reportedly set to air on ITV later this year

A new reality show will see celebrities teach members of the public how to drive.

TV bosses are hoping to capitalise on the popularity of celebrity-led reality shows like 'Splash!' and 'The Jump' with a new car crash viewing experience, provisionally dubbed 'Driving With The Stars'.

According to The Sun newspaper, stars including 'Coronation Street' favourite Julie Hesmondhalgh and former 'The Only Way Is Essex' stars Amy Childs and Joey Essex have been recruited to mentor "problem" drivers who have proved to be a menace behind the wheel.

A source said: "It's a definite goer. Imagine seeing Joey Essex trying to explain to someone how to do a U-turn, or Amy Childs giving a masterclass on the three-point turn - it could be comedy gold."

'Celebrity Big Brother' winner Jim Davidson, who was hit with a driving ban in 2011, is also a hot favourite to join the line-up.

Motoring experts will help the stars teach the hapless learner drivers the basics, as they attempt to get them ready to pass their driving tests.

The show is reportedly set to air on ITV this summer.
