ROB Beckett is unleashing his brand new BBC show, Unbreakable.
The new BBC One reality show sees six celebrity couples take part in a series of emotional, mental and physical challenges designed to prove their devotion to each other.
Which celebrities couples are taking part in the BBC’s Unbreakable?
Denise Welch and Lincoln Townley
Lincoln is her second husband, and is a contemporary artist and former PR manager.
Speaking about why they signed up for the show, the couple told the BBC: “We wanted a fun project to do together after a really tough year.
“We’ve always seen ourselves as an unbreakable couple and it was nice to show that to other people, as many in life have doubted us.”
Denise added: “We learnt that Lincoln can sometimes play well with others!
“The show reinforced that we prefer to do things together, and that now includes working.”
Charlie Mullins OBE and RaRa
Together with his partner RaRa – who is a Katy Perry lookalike – they will prove they are Unbreakable.

Speaking about why they signed up to the show, the couple told the BBC: “We thought it would be a great challenge to do together.
“We have so much fun together on a daily basis, working and living together.
“It was a good opportunity to take part in a new experience and make some more memories.”
Simon Weston CBE and Lucy Weston
Falklands war hero Simon Weston teams up with his wife of xx years, Lucy.
Speaking about why they signed up for the show, the couple told the BBC: “We took part as it was something so far out of our comfort zone. We’d never done anything like this before.
Simon added: “We don’t think we struggled with any aspect of the challenges. The physical side of things was a bit tough mostly because we’re old!
“At times, especially for Lucy, things were emotional.
“There were topics she hadn’t spoken about in public before.”
Stephen Bailey and Rich Taylor
Stand-up comedian Stephen Bailey and his man Rich Taylor have teamed up for this challenge.
Stephen is best known for being the presenter on Channel 5’s Celebs On The Farm.
Speaking about why they signed up to Unbreakable, the couple told the BBC: “We wanted to take part because normally, due to our hectic work schedules, we only get to spend a bit of time with each other here and there, and we normally end up slobbed on the sofa in front of a box set.
“So when presented with this opportunity we thought it would be nice to spend some quality time with each other and actually do some activities!”
Shirley Ballas and Danny Taylor
Like Shirley, her man is a trained dancer in ballroom, tap and waltz and even released an album in 2015 called The Party Is Over.
Speaking about why they signed up to Unbreakable, she told the BBC: “I took part as I wanted to see how well I knew my partner. All the nitty-gritty of a relationship.
“Seeing how well we could work together – and mostly I loved the idea of us doing something together.”
Danny added: “Well, firstly I loved the idea of Shirley and I doing something like this together – it seemed like a great opportunity to do something together first and foremost.
“Having then watched the pilot and seeing what we’d be doing and what the challenges were, I really liked the idea as well.”
