The cast for Sugar Free Farm series two.

The Essex star has been confirmed for the second series of the ITV series, which challenges celebrities to completely cut sugar and other less healthy foods from their diets.

The full cast for series two is:

Gemma Collins, TOWIE star
Alison Hammond, This Morning reporter
Ann Widdecombe, former MP and Strictly Come Dancing star
Peter Davison, Doctor Who and All Creatures Great and Small actor
Joe Pasquale, comedian and I'm A Celebrity star
Stavros Flatley, Britain's Got Talent stars

The cast will be living together in a farm cottage in Hampshire under the watchful eye of nutritionist Hala El-Shafie, who will be monitoring their progress as they undertake a strict new eating regime.

As well as cutting sugar from their diet, the celebrities must live without refined carbohydrates, cheap meat, bad fats and all processed food for 15 consecutive days. Instead, they'll have to put in some tough work to produce "natural, wholesome foods" on the farm.

Sounds tough, right?

Arg appeared in the first series of Sugar Free Farm earlier this year.

No doubt Gemma has been chatting to her ex Arg about his experience on the show earlier this year. He told us while the series had been exceedingly tough, he'd enjoyed the challenge and had a newfound respect for farmes.

"I loved the experience, but there were times when I found it hard, being away from home, living with people I'd never met before, that could be quite tough at times. I also found the working hours quite hard and just how tough the work was living on a farm," said Arg.

"I've got to take my hat off to farmers and show them huge respect. And doing all that work with no sugar in our body. There were times when I felt exhausted and irritable, and my moods would change. It was quite full on, but what an experience.

It was really just a great experience all round and I'm really glad I did it. I learnt a lot, met some cool people. I've now got the knowledge to know how to limit the sugar in my diet, so there are no excuses. But it's not just about the knowledge, it's about having the right mind-set to do it."

Sugar Free Farm stars January 2017 on ITV.
