The former Coronation Street actor joins Alex Reid, Dale Howard and Marcus Patrick in the show, which has been described as 'Benidorm meets The Full Monty'.
With the foursome playing exaggerated versions of themselves, Young told Digital Spy that the production will mock the current celebrity culture.
"You get so many people now who go on Celebrity Coach Trip and they're suddenly a celebrity, and you think, 'f**king hell'. I've been working since I was 14. And then you've got these people coming out of certain shows taking jobs," he said.
"I like that it's taking the p*ss out of yourselves. You can't take the play too serious. If you take it in the spirit it's meant, it'll be very, very good and a great night out."
With only a script for the pilot shows to go on, Young said that he is looking forward to getting involved with the writers to inject some of his own personality into the script. "I don't want to go on stage with dialogue that doesn't flow for me. I want it to be familiar," he said.

Young admitted that he knows most critics will be "focused" on the flesh on show each night, despite the cast insisting that the stripping is only one aspect of the show.
"All of us want great reviews. We all want them say, 'Great show, great acting - and flesh involved!'. But I know, it's going to be focused on the stripping," he said. "So yeah, we'd love the press to say what a lovely bunch of people we are, but it's not an ideal world. We'll take the rough with the smooth and do the best we can."
The 24-year-old was the first castmember - in his pink underwear - to be paraded on stage for photographers at the show's launch. Despite his experience of being topless on Dancing On Ice, he confessed that he was apprehensive about his appearance.
"I was more nervous doing this because you're walking out like a f**king idiot in a pair of briefs. I was nervous - and I don't usually get nervous. I'm a bit of an exhibitionist, I usually don't give a f**k," he said.
Young added to DS that he expects his own gay fanbase to enjoy the performance.
"I get a lot of stuff from the gay community," he explained. "I've got a lot of gay friends. Whenever I go out, I probably get more attention from gay men than I do women. It's cool."
With the cast insisting that there will be "no competition" between them on stage next year, Young said: "It's about us all turning up, doing a good job, and looking like we could be a stripper. It's not about who looks the best."
He added of the possibility of extending his time in the show beyond the 18 announced dates: "If it's well respected, gets a good response and sells tickets - then I can't see it not going for more dates. Whether I'll be a part of that... if all is going well, then great. But at the same time, as an actor, you like to do things, move on and increase your CV. "
Tickets for Wildboyz, which kicks off next April, are on sale now.
