Let’s get to know the cast of Don’t Rock the Boat – ITV’s brand new show!
It seems that competitive TV shows are getting more and more challenging these days as celebrities are put through their paces.
Whether it’s because viewers like to see them squirm, or producers are simply running out of ideas, shows such as SAS: Who Dares Wins, I’m A Celebrity, Hunted and The Jump are all the rage.
Now, new five-part series – Don’t Rock the Boat – is here and AJ Odudu and Freddie Flintoff are set to present the show!

Most recently, Fleur was a contestant on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2018. She almost made it to the end of I’m A Celeb, so it’s safe to say she’s a good member to have on your team!
YouTuber Joe Weller has a huge 5.4m subscribers on YouTube – so, if you haven’t heard of him already, then you have now!
Speaking of the show on his YouTube channel, Joe said: “…basically we were rowing from Cornwall to the top of Scotland“. He added: “It took me to a place that I would not wish on my worst enemy.“
Don’t Rock the Boat cast: Jack Fincham
Up next, we have the Love Island legend himself, Jack Fincham!
He rose to fame by winning a slightly different ITV show (Love Island) along with his then-girlfriend Dani Dyer.
Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon is the next celebrity up for a challenge.
Lucy has around half a million followers on Instagram, @lucyfallonx, where she often posts her ‘outfit of the day’!
Victoria Pendleton CBE is a two-time Olympic champion and nine-time world champion. She’s a British jockey and former track cyclist.
Victoria was awarded an MBE in 2009 for her services to cycling. You can find her on IG @victorilou.
Shaun Wallace, AKA The Dark Destroyer, is best known for being a Chaser on daytime TV show The Chase.
Brains, as well as brawn, are said to be of equal importance on Don’t Rock the Boat, so whichever team ends up with Shaun should think themselves lucky.
Don’t Rock the Boat ITV cast: Adam Thomas
One of the three Thomas brothers, Adam Thomas is set to be part of the cast for Don’t Rock the Boat.
The actor is best known for his roles in Waterloo Road and Emmerdale.
He was a contestant on series 16 of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, so with any luck, he’ll be slightly prepared for Don’t Rock the Boat!
What would a celebrity lineup be without a Pussycat Doll? Kimberly Wyatt has appeared on many other shows including Celebrity MasterChef, Got to Dance, The Jump and more.
