Love Island stars Chris and Kem are returning to ITV2. The digi-net has given the green-light to a new social-media directed reality series fronted by the duo titled You Vs. Chris And Kem, which is in a similar vein to Dave’s Ross Noble Freewheeling.
The series sees the duo put their teamwork to the test as they’re taken out of their comfort zones by ITV2 viewers provoking their competitive spirit in a series of ludicrous challenges. Travelling across the country in a specially pimped up “Bro Mobile”, Chris and Kem see the challenges from viewers appear on their social media channels in real time. They could be inspired by a job, a hobby or a party piece, but Chris and Kem have to decide quickly whether to accept them – without knowing the full extent of the challenge or their competitors until they arrive at their destination to meet them.
You Vs. Chris And Kem is being produced for ITV2 by Twenty Six 03 Entertainment – the entertainment and formats joint venture founded by Duncan Gray and Cineflix Media. Former Sky Living boss Antonia Hurford-Jones will executive produce alongside Duncan Gray. “Like the rest of the country, all of us at Twenty Six 03 fell in love with Chris and Kem last year”, Gray said in a statement. “You Vs. Chris And Kem will see the boys continue their bromance as they tour the country together competing against the ITV2 viewers who have lured them into spontaneous, absolutely anything goes, toe-to-toe challenges.”
