Strictly star signs up terrifying new TV show with Max George and Gazza | The Sun

A STRICTLY Come Dancing star has signed up for a terrifying new TV show with Max George and Paul Gascoigne.

Former Olympic boxer Nicola Adams – who took part in the BBC dancing competition in 2020 – is due to join a host of celebrity faces in new Channel 4 show Scared Of The Dark.

A TV insider has confirmed that Nicola, 39, has been signed up after "wanting to push herself" in the terrifying new show.

The brainchild of Channel 4, Scared Of The Dark will see celebrities have their mettle tested by being denied light for days on end.

A source told The Sun: "As an athlete, Nicola is always wanting to push herself but living without daylight will be the ultimate test of nerve, endurance and willpower.

"If she thought the boxing ring or the Strictly dance floor was tough, this will take things to a new level she won't have experienced before."

Channel 4 declined to comment when approached by the Sun Online.

Nicola is set to join former Newscatle footballer Paul, 55, in his first entertainment series since The Weakest Link in 2009.

An insider said: "Despite the scale of the challenge, Gazza passed all his assessments with flying colours and filming on the programme will start shortly."

While another boxer, Chris Eubanks, has also signed up for the terrifying new show to survive in the pitch black darkness.

A source told The Sun: "Chris is always up for new challenges, so when he was approached about this new reality series, he was well up for it.

"He's a tough guy from his years in the boxing ring, but this show will test even the strongest of characters. Not only is it physically tough, but living in complete darkness will be a massive mental challenge too."

Max George has also signed up to take part – alongside former I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here! winner Scarlett Moffatt.
