Blue - Lee Ryan, Antony Costa, Duncan James and Simon Webbe - were set the challenge of running a bar in Ibiza for new ITV2 show 'Blue Go Mad in Ibiza'
Blue are to run a bar in Ibiza for a new TV show.
The boy band - Lee Ryan, Antony Costa, Duncan James and Simon Webbe - will appear in ITV2 programme 'Blue Go Mad in Ibiza' for which they were set the challenge to turn a relaxed San Antonio bar into one of the Spanish island's top holiday hot spots in just 14 days.
Among the challenges the Blue boys will have to deal with are awkward customers intent on making trouble, difficult staff members, including a chauvinistic head barman, and an overly flamboyant PR intent on causing havoc.
Unbeknown to the foursome while they were shooting all the problematic people were actors who had been specifically asked to make mischief.
In a joint statement, the guys said: "We thoroughly enjoyed running the bar and definitely see a potential future in this for Blue, but we still can't believe we were fooled into believing our closest confidantes in the bar were genuine!
"We've got into some unusual predicaments during our time in the band, but what the team tricked us into on the show was unbelievable. We're still shocked we didn't guess!"
The four-part series is yet to get a start date.
