Soap star Malique Thompson-Dwyer revealed he only said yes to taking part in Celebs on a Farm because he needed the money.
The MTV show, which begins tonight, will see Malique and a number of other famous faces being put through their paces by farmer Chris, as they learn all about the agricultural way of life.
Sounds easy, right?
Joining Malique on his mission to become the best farmer is Shaun Williamson, Lady C, Kerry Katona, Duncan James, Montana Brown, Cheryl Hole, Linda Robson, Harry Aikines-Aryeetey and finally, Holly Hagan.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk ahead of the series, the former Hollyoaks actor explained that the programme came at the right time because ‘work had slowed down’.
‘I was just taking jobs as they come because obviously work had slowed right down,’ he told us.
‘So, be completely honest, this job came along and I thought I need the money.’
‘What I wasn’t expecting was it to be such a good time,’ he added.
‘I wasn’t expecting it to be as amazing as it wasn’t I wasn’t expecting to meet so many amazing people.’
Malique is famous for his role as Prince McQueen in Hollyoaks.
His other TV appearances include I’m A Celebrity…get Me Out Of Here! and Celebs Go Dating.
The reality show will see the celebs spending two weeks learning the ropes on the Sussex coast as they attempt to shovel poo, feed calves and even try to herd sheep.
But, who will impress Chris?
The first series, which originally aired on 5Star, saw the likes of Bobby Norris, Charlotte Dawson and Gogglebox’s Sandi Bogle taking part.
However after their two weeks was complete, it was Strictly dancer Gleb Savchenko was crowned the winner.
Celebs on a Farm begins tonight at 9pm on MTV.
