TOWIE star Joey Essex will be put through his paces as he attempts a series of physical and mental challenges on the new series of The Cube.

Joey will be starring on the first episode of the celebrity special and will be hoping to beat the Cube in order to win a quarter of a million pounds for his chosen charity.

Former I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star Joey will be guided through the process by Phillip, who recently provided the voiceover for his reality show, Educating Joey Essex.

Also joining Joey will be Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh, who will be taking a break from pulling pints to face a series of challenges in front of a studio audience.

The format of The Cube sees each player start with nine lives, in which they have to complete seven tasks to win the jackpot.

If they accept the challenge and lose all their lives during the game, then they will leave with nothing.

So far, Olympic champion Mo Farah has been the only person able to beat the Cube, so viewers will have to see if Joey and Kym can follow in his footsteps!

The Cube: celebrity special airs Friday 11 April at 9pm on ITV1.
