Meet the Trawlermen: Celebs At Sea cast - Shane, Antony and Ben!

Channel 5 is back with another reality TV series placing celebs in strange new environments and seeing how they’d fare!

We finished up with Celebs On The Ranch earlier this year, but now three celebs are heading towards some slightly fishier territory.

Trawlermen: Celebs At Sea kicks off on Monday, July 1st and sees celebrities take on the challenge of working on a fishing trawler in dangerous sea conditions.

So who is taking on this challenge?

Read on to find out everything you need to know about the Trawlermen: Celebs At Sea cast and more!


Ben Cohen

40-year-old Ben from Northampton is one of the three celebs taking on the challenge.

The ex-England Rugby Union player and MBE is no stranger to the world of TV, having taken part in many popular shows such as Pointless and Strictly Come Dancing since he retired from professional rugby.

In fact, his appearance on Strictly became notorious as he ended his relationship with his wife of eleven years, Abby Blayney, after appearing on the show. He quickly engaged in a relationship with his Strictly dance partner Kristina Rihanoff.

Ben and Kristina are still in a relationship and deny it started before his divorce was annulled.

They have a daughter called Milena who was born in 2016. But Ben also has twin daughters, Isabelle and Hariette, from his marriage to Abby.

Antony Worrall Thompson

Antony is a 68-year-old restauranteur, chef and writer from Stratford-Upon-Avon.

His career began in the late 1970s when he ventured to London to become a sous-chef at a posh West London. It wasn’t long before Antony acquired his own restaurant and in 1981 opened Ménage Á Trois in Knightsbridge – a restaurant famed for only serving starters and desserts.

Antony has also appeared on many TV shows, but mainly as a chef working on the likes of Ready, Steady, Cook and Saturday Kitchen.

He has taken on a ‘wild’ challenge before (if you will), appearing on the second series of I’m A Celebrity… back in 2003, placing fifth.


Shane Lynch

The 42-year-old is a singer, songwriter and actor who was a member of popular Irish band Boyzone.

Since Boyzone, Shane has become increasingly involved in the TV world. He has appeared on Celebrity Masterchef in 2013 and you might best know Shane after he appeared on Celebrity Big Brother last year.

But it’s also no surprise that Shane is taking on this TV challenge, as the thrillseeker is a professional drift driver and racer alongside his other work!

Skipper Alan Watt

Alan Watt is a real skipper from Newton, Aberdeenshire in Scotland.

He works on the HMS Genesis with his son Phillip Watt and the family certainly will not be taking it easy on these celebs.

They will immerse them in the dangerous world of being a trawlerman… Just see how terrifying it looks below!
