The 16th series of the NTA and Bafta award-winning entertainment show produced by BBC Studios will return in the autumn on BBC One putting the sparkle back into Saturday and Sunday nights.
Dr Ranj said: “I'm so overwhelmed and excited to be part of this wonderful show. It's an absolute dream come true for me! I've been a massive fan for so long, and I can't quite believe this is happening, but I'm going to give it my best shot. Anyone that knows me knows that I love a bit of sparkle... so bring on the glitter! I can’t wait!”
Inspiring, fun and engaging - not words often associated with science and medical experts, yet Dr Ranj combines all three with infectious enthusiasm. Dr Ranj is one of the resident doctors on ITV’s This Morning, specialising in the wellbeing of young people, and still works shifts in A&E and the intensive care unit at his local NHS hospital. He is also the co-creating host of Bafta award-winning CBeebies series, Get Well Soon and co-presenter of ITV's brand new prime-time series Save Money: Good Health. As well as these shows, Dr Ranj can regularly be seen on other programmes as wide-ranging as: BBC's Pointless Celebrities, Inside Out, Celebrity Eggheads and Watchdog; ITV's Good Morning Britain and Tonight; Channel 5's Big Brother's Bit On The Side and 5 News.
The news was revealed this morning on ITV’s This Morning presented by Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.
The remaining celebrity contestants joining the new series will be announced in due course.
