Hook it into my veins!

The line-up for the celebrity spin-off of The X Factor has finally been revealed. HOOK IT INTO MY VEINS.

If you thought you could get away from Love Island… you’re wrong. Last year’s contestants will be forming the super-group The Islanders. Members include Wes Nelson, Samira Mighty, Eyal Booker and Zara McDermott.

There will be four other groups competing, and one will include Ben Foden who will be in a rugby group called Try Star.

As for the Overs? Journalist Martin Bashir has signed up, and Ricki Lake is also going to join in!

No official start date but if it follows Britain’s Got Talent, The Champions, then we should expect it to start on Saturday 12th October?

Ricky Martin has announced he and his husband Jwan Yosef are expecting a fourth child.

The singer spilled the beans while accepting an award during the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington DC.

Martin welcomed twin sons Valentino and Matteo in 2008, and daughter Lucia was born late last year.
