Drive
Drive is a brand new entertainment series for ITV which features the thrills and spills of motor racing and pitches eight well known celebrities against each other in an adrenaline charged race with a difference.
 
The five part series is hosted by Vernon Kay with UK racing legend and double British Touring Car Champion, Jason Plato, on hand with his expert advice.
 
Celebrities taking to the tracks are: rapper Professor Green; singer Ella Eyre; TV personality Louis Walsh; actor and comedian Johnny Vegas; Olympic athlete Colin Jackson; TV presenter Mariella Frostrup; weather expert Laura Tobin and broadcaster Angus Deayton.
 
This high-octane driving competition will see the celebrities take to the driving seats of old bangers, buggies, 4x4s and rallycross cars among others.  As they get into pole position, we will see who has what it takes in a host of unexpected and action packed driving challenges.
 
The celebrities with the slowest time in each challenge will battle it out in a Night Race to see who will remain in the competition.  And those that remain by the Final will burn up the tracks in an F4 car in a bid to be crowned the Drive Champion.
