Characters will include North Pier comic Joey Blower, who is aiming to lose weight and find a girlfriend to take home to his mum.

D'Lovely B&B business partners and lovers Steven and Leigh, and 'King of the Slots' Chris Higgitt will also appear.

Other locals involved include bingo boss Alan Haworth, who wants to conquer a fear of flying so he can visit his internet girlfriend, and a grumpy taxi driver called Dean.

Channel 5's head of factual entertainment Steve Gowans said: "Blackpool represents the quintessential British seaside resort, and the characters we feature in the series show that it's still a place where everything and anything can happen - usually with a great big dollop of Northern humour."
