The final two contestants for new Holly Willoughby-fronted Netflix show, Bear Hunt, have reportedly been revealed as TV presenter Steph McGovern and The Inbetweeners star Joe Thomas.

According to The Sun, the pair flew out to Costa Rica earlier this month where filming is taking place for the new show, which is hosted by survival expert, Bear Grylls, 49, as well as former This Morning star, Holly, 43.

There, they joined a whole host of other celebrities who are taking part in the show, including former Spice Girl Mel B, Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas, and ex-tennis pro, Boris Becker.

A production insider said to The Sun: "Signing up Steph and Joe have made this one of the most diverse and unusual celebrity line up ever seen on a show like this.

"The dozen celebrities come from incredibly different backgrounds - whether it's ballroom dancing, singing, sport or interior design. They'll each bring something to the mix.

"None of the choices are obvious - particularly not Steph and Joe, neither of whom have been on our screens in some time."

The show, which is billed as being similar to I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! is set to launch on Netflix, and will see a group of British celebs being dropped into the jungle to face survival expert Bear. The working title of the show is 'Bear Hunt' and will see Holly, 42, journey into the jungles of Central America.

Here is the full line-up for Bear Hunt...
