The 5 x 60-minute series will see 12 famous faces step out of their comfort zones and onto their sea legs as they compete in one of the toughest shows ever filmed on both land and sea.
British politician and author Tom Watson, sports presenter and Olympic gold medalist Denise Lewis OBE, supermodel and broadcaster Jodie Kidd, actor Craig Charles, singer-songwriter Fleur East, YouTuber Joe Weller, Love Island winner Jack Fincham, Coronation Street actress Lucy Fallon, Olympic, World and European Champion Victoria Pendleton CBE, The Chase's Dark Destroyer Shaun Wallace, actor and presenter Adam Thomas and International girl group, The Pussycat Dolls, member Kimberly Wyatt were in Bangor Marina this morning to start the N.Irish leg of the race.
At 0930 they boarded their rowing boats and started to row from the Long Hole to Glenarm.
Taking the helm are sporting legend Freddie Flintoff and The Voice's AJ Odudu as they present the series and guide the celebrities through each leg of the race on the water and preside over the colossal coastal challenges on land.
