Dean Gaffney, Louisa Lytton, Jennie McAlpine & Keith Duffy to compete on ITV’s The Door

In this brand-new, two-part special for ITV1, six celebrities will put their bravery to the test and take on the challenge of enduring a multitude of tests, all delicately designed to instil in them a mix of emotions, from fear to total confusion, as they discover what lies behind The Door.

Actors Dean Gaffney, Louisa Lytton, Coronation Street’s Jennie McAlpine, Boyzone’s Keith Duffy join television presenter Michael Underwood and The Saturday’s singer Frankie Sandford as they compete against each other in the ultimate celebrity endeavour contest.

The anxious contestants will pass through a series of doors. Each will transport them to unexpected places where they will face challenges that will assault all their senses. They will battle claustrophobic spaces, suffer shocks, and, hopefully with a sense of adventure, cope with disorientating games as they battle it out to be the last star standing and claim a cash prize for their chosen charity.

Presiding over the entertaining thrills and spills is Chris Tarrant and Amanda Holden, who will be on hand to prepare the celebrities for what lies ahead and provide detailed commentary from their insider vantage point.

In this knockout competition, each door will claim a victim. By the end of the first episode, three of the celebrities will have made it through to the final.

For the three ‘losers’, a long and arduous ordeal awaits, during which they’ll face a series of disorientating challenges, after surviving which, one will have earned the last remaining place in the final showdown and two will have to leave.

In the concluding instalment, the four finalists take part in two head-to-head contests, before the last two remaining celebrities do battle in the final challenge until only the winner remains.

They’ll scream, we’ll laugh, but can the celebrities survive their adventure or fall victim to their fears?
