Celebrity 5 Go Barging cast and start time

The line up of celebrities on Celebrity 5 Go Barging have been revealed.


The new Channel 5 show will see some familiar faces sailing through France as they live together on a narrowboat.

They’ll learn how to navigate (and avoid sinking) as they trade their usual life of luxury for the cramped conditions of a cabin on the water.

The cast will board their boats on the River Lot in South west France before heading on a journey along France’s most picturesque waterways.

As they sail, they’ll stop off at some famous tourist destinations such as the city of Cahors, known for its deep red wine and medieval architecture.
