While ITV bosses have remained tight-lipped on the star lineup, it seems the secret has already been revealed.
EastEnders Jessica Plummer, Strictly’s AJ Pritchard and presenter Victoria Derbyshire were among several stars pictured attending a top-secret photoshoot in footage obtained by The Sun.
The stars were joined by presenter Vernon Kay, tenor Russell Watson as well as Paralympian Hollie Arnold, actress Ruthie Henshall and actress Beverley Callard.
According to the publication, the eight stars are part of the cohort that is expected to travel to Wales next month.

While 10 stars are expected to appear on the show, so far only eight have been identified according to the photos.
It is not clear if other contestants can enter the show later.
The post goes on to reveal that the celebrities arrived at a location in Kensal Green, north London, where they were scheduled to appear in a promotional session ahead of the ITV show.
They were apparently going to be pictured in their official IAC costumes for the first time.
The stars all arrived in blacked-out cars and many tried to hide who they were with face masks, but their identities have since been scolded.
The reported photoshoot comes before the stars head to a two-week isolation period ahead of the upcoming series.
An ITV representative has been contacted by MirrorOnline for comment.
According to The Sun, a TV insider has confirmed that this year’s lineup offers a wide variety of talented stars.
“This year’s celebrity collection is shaping up to be nothing if not eclectic, with the latest signings,” the source said.
For the first time in 20-year history, the entire series will be shot in the UK instead of the typical Australian jungle.
Numerous security measures have also been put in place to ensure the safety of the actors and the team during the current pandemic.
