Alan Davies, Roisin Conaty, Guz Khan, Judi Love, Chris McCausland and Laura Smyth have all been confirmed to take part in the outdoor survival challenge series David Mitchell's Outsiders, airing on Dave and UKTV Play later this year.
Teaming up in pairs, they join David Mitchell as he challenges them to demonstrate if they will survive, thrive or epically fail, as they fend for themselves in the wild for a week to prove they have the skills to scratch together a new society in the wild.
David Mitchell's Outsiders comes to Dave and UKTV Play later this year and joins an array of returning UKTV Originals for the channel including Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, Meet the Richardsons and Big Zuu's Big Eats.
