Does he know what he’s letting himself in for, though?

The former soap star, who was a big deal in the 80s with his band Spandau Ballet, will be joining 10 other brave celebrities who will be left to fend for themselves on a remote island.

While Martin’s recently appeared in the odd TV series including Murder In Successville and Father Brown, he’s also no stranger to reality TV – he appeared on Celebrity Big Brother 2012 and this year’s Great Celebrity Bake Off.

For four weeks, the famous faces will tear themselves away from their luxuries and loved ones and attempt to survive on a desert island with nothing but the clothes on their back, basic tools, medical supplies and enough water to last for 24 hours.

Who’ll last the four weeks? Only time will tell!

Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls will air on Channel 4 this autumn.
