Six of ITV2’s biggest entertainment shows are back for 2022 as the broadcaster announces the return of a roster of audience favourites.

Celebrity Juice, produced by Talkback (a Fremantle label) sees Laura Whitmore and Emily Atack return once again as team captains in 10 x 45 minute episodes. The unpredictable, laugh out loud panel show returns, following a successful series last year which consistently ranked number one multichannel show in the slot for 16-34s.
The Emily Atack Show, produced by Universal International Studios’ Monkey, is back for 6 x 45” episodes. Once again, Emily will be unleashing her own uniquely personal comedy and treating viewers to even more uncanny impressions, mischievous sketches and comedic skits.
Meanwhile, a raucous group of celebrities will be reaching for the microphone in another outing of outlandish music entertainment show, Celebrity Karaoke Club. Produced by Universal International Studios’ Monkey, the question is who will be following in Scarlett Moffatt and AJ Odudu’s footsteps to become the ultimate karaoke star? The Celebrity Karaoke Club format is distributed globally by NBCUniversal Formats, which is also a division of Universal Studio Group.
The most ludicrous, hilarious, physical gameshow in existence, Apocalypse Wow, is returning for a second series, from producers Tuesday’s Child. In each episode a team of celebrities will enter the Torturedome in a bid to defeat the terrifying superhuman bosses in a series of devious challenges.
Shopping With Keith Lemon, produced by Talkback (a Fremantle label), will make a comeback with an 8 x 30-minute run. Now in its third series, a whole new set of celebrities will be spending some quality time with Keith Lemon, unearthing some fascinating insights into the lives of some of the most recognisable faces.
Secret Crush, made by Naked Television (a Fremantle company) returns for a second series. Presented by Verona Rose, singletons confess their true feelings to their unknowing crushes – but how will they react and will the surprising admissions lead to true love?
Meanwhile, the ultimate Summer of love is on the horizon as Love Island makes its long awaited return, direct from a brand new villa in Mallorca. Applications are currently open for singletons looking for a long, hot Summer…
