Set in a Torture Dome', an outrageous secret underground club, part-BDSM dungeon, part Fight Club, Apocalypse Wow is hosted by AJ Odudu alongside Hey Tracey’s Donna Preston who assumes the role of 'The Mistress'.

In each episode, five celebs will enter the dome to take on The Mistress’s terrifying Superhuman ‘Bosses’ such as Master Enormo (one of the world’s strongest men), The Horn Hunter (a back-flipping parkour master), Hot Slippy Jesus (the UK's no.1 gravy wrestler), The Mermaid (a mermaid) and more.

They must work together to defeat these extraordinary opponents taking them on in a series of ludicrous and entertaining physical challenges.

Alone the celebrities would be demolished, but united they stand the chance of overcoming a series of crazed contenders to win the day and take home a load of cash for charity.

At the end of each episode, the weakest celeb will b banished in a hilariously unique way and a new famous face will enter the Torture Dome in their place.

The celebrity competitors will be led by TV favourite Scarlett Moffatt.

Other celebrity contestants will include Reality TV star Sam Thompson, TV presenter Karim Zeroual, comedian Kemah Bob, Pussycat Dolls’ Kimberly Wyatt and Reality TV star Jessica Wright.

Scarlett said: “It’s hard to put into words how bizarre and crazy Apocalypse Wow is! The pressure was well and truly on for me as I led the celebs into battle.

"I had the most fun making the series and it's unlike anything I've ever seen on TV before so I’m super excited for everyone to see it. Trust me when I say, you’re not going to want to miss this!”

AJ Odudu commented: “I am absolutely buzzing to be hosting ITV2’s new show, ‘Apocalypse Wow’ – it’s bonkers, but brilliant. It’s full of humour, challenges and all our favourite celebrities!"

And Donna Preston added: “I've always wanted to have ownership over these celebrities and have them as my servants and with this role, the Mistress, I can do just that. The role of the Mistress is feisty and fun.
