Love Island star Chloe Burroughs has landed a big new job on TV with Games.
The 25-year-old, who rose to fame on a reality TV show last summer when she fell in love with Toby Aromolaran, has been drafted as a reserve and kept quiet while secretly training with other stars.
Despite not being guaranteed a main spot on the show, Chloe has to stick to the same grueling routine as the other stars.
A source said, “Khloe managed to keep it under wraps, but she was busy training and meeting all the other stars.
“It’s a big deal for her and a big TV gig – she’s excited to be a part of it.”
Television and radio personality Will Njobwu is also a standby for the show.
An ITV spokesperson said: “Chloe Burroughs and Will Njobwu are back-ups for the show and have been training hard with the rest of the team in preparation for the live performances.
“They will take part in the competition in case of any injury or illness and we are very happy to have them on board.”
The line-up for the Games has recently been revealed, and a plethora of reality TV stars and actors are ready to compete for it.
Olivia Attwood and Christine McGuinness pull on their sneakers, pull on their swimsuits and get on their bikes with 10 other celebrities.
The ITV show, hosted by Holly Willoughby and Freddie Flintoff, will also feature Mel B’s daughter Phoenix Brown, songwriter Chelsea Grimes and Harry Potter actor Josh Herdman.
The Sun previously reported that TV personality Wes Nelson and Corry’s Colson Smith would also be in attendance.
Newsreader Lucrezia Millarini, Emmerdale actor Rebecca Sarker and actor Ryan Thomas are the latest three names to go head-to-head in a series of new series sports challenges.
The Games will also feature Alex Scott as a reporter and Chris Kamara as a commentator.
Meanwhile, six men and six women compete in the track and field arena, swimming pool, gymnasium and velodrome.
Each of them will test their sportsmanship in a variety of sports, from the 100m sprint to diving, while scoring points on the medal table.
In addition to live coverage of the events, each episode will feature celebrity training as they are taught the sport from the ground up by some of the UK’s top coaches.
Following a grueling pre-competition training program, they strive to reach their peak physical condition.
As the leaderboard builds each night, the series will culminate in an exciting final showdown that will see one men’s and one women’s champion crowned.
