CHANNEL 4's Who Dares Wins has signed up the ‘hottest ever’ contestant in the form of a Love Island star.
We can reveal that Ovie Soko is set to join the list of celebrities in New Zealand as they film the hit endurance show.
Ovie, 32, is best known for his stint in the fifth instalment of the hit reality programme Love Island.
But despite only experiencing the comforts of the luxury Mallorca villa on TV, sources close to the Channel 4 insist that the star is the perfect fit for the new series.
A show insider said: "Ovie jumped at the chance to take part and flew out earlier this week.
"He’s a basketball player so he’s hoping the fact he’s an athlete will give him an advantage over the other stars."

Rachel will be joined by stars including disgraced ex Dancing On Ice judge John Barrowman, and Towie's Pete Wicks who was forced to pull out early last year after a nasty accident during filming.
A source said: "Rachel is Channel 4’s star signing for SAS.
"They hope she will spill the beans about her childhood with Boris during the tough interrogations.
"Rachel is a tough woman and will give it her all. But she had a gilded upbringing and might struggle when it's freezing cold, she has barely slept and is being made to do extreme exercises."
Rachel is no stranger to reality television and previously appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2018.
The LBC presenter failed to win the public over however and was the second person to be voted out.
Dancing On Ice judge John has not appeared on a TV show since he was sacked by ITV in 2021.
