UK network ITV is reuniting with London-based production company Twenty Six 03 Entertainment for the reality competition format You vs Chris and Kem.

The series (4 x 60 minutes) will air on ITV2 in 2019, and follows best friends and Love Island stars Chris Hughes and Kem Cetiney, better known as Chris and Kem, as they compete with the viewing public in outlandish challenges meant to test their teamwork skills.

It’s a direct follow-up to the summer’s successful one-off special of the same name, in which challenges included camel riding, gravy wrestling (pictured) and speed-eating donuts.

The duo will travel across the country in their ‘Bro Mobile’ receiving cryptic challenges via social media, taking on their fans with little information on what they have to do or who they’re up against.

You vs Chris and Kem is executive produced by Antonia Hurford-Jones and Duncan Gray for Twenty Six 03. It was ordered for ITV by Amanda Stavri and Paul Mortimer.
