But they're not doing it alone, because a twist sees them partnered up with their family members during the sex-part series.

Former Strictly champ Harry is travelling with his mum Emma, Alex is partnered up with his dad Noel, Mel joins her mum Helene and Billy with his sister Bonny.

The group star in Marrakech, Morocco, the most north-western country in Africa, and the final destination is Tromsø in Norway, known as the Arctic capital.

The celebs and their family members will have to make it through 24 countries and over 10,000 km.

Speaking about signing up to the show, rockstar Harry said: "I never travelled when I was younger. I travelled with the band, but I never properly did backpacking and I always wanted to.

"I think the same applies for my mum, she always wanted to but started a family when she was 22."

Alex said: "I thought it was a fantastic opportunity to do something that we've never done before. Neither of us have ever backpacked, so it's a new experience. And, also, just to see some amazing places!

"Across continents and across countries, and you’re getting to see everything at ground level, so it’s completely different to just flying over – getting to immerse yourself in different cultures and communities."

Mel said: "For the experience, to be out of my comfort zone, to do something that I wouldn't necessarily choose to do on my own. I’m definitely up for challenges and pushing myself… And this is what mum does all the time!"

Billy added: "We’ve spoken about travelling before, but it would probably be a little bit different to what I imagine this is going to be like – in terms of doing everything on such a budget and staying in hostels and being tight on money for food.

"With this opportunity, I spoke to Bon about it, and she said it could be quite cool. So, we sat down and watched the previous series and got more and more into it and then decided why not!"

Celebrity Race Across The World will air later this year.
