Nick Grimshaw, Amber Gill, Vicky Pattison and Pete Wicks join forces to front reality show with a major twist
The group are taking part in a new E4 series called Josh Must Win which will feaure several members of the public as contestants – but all is not what it seems.
The contestants cast on the show think they are competing in a popularity contest called The Favourite.
However, amongst the players there is an underdog no one is expecting named Josh.
All the players (including Josh) believe they are battling it out to be the most popular, and win a cash prize on The Favourite.

But what none of them know is that living next door is a group of celebrities, masterminding their own game of strategy, and doing everything they can to ensure that Josh must win – without blowing their cover.
Faced with their greatest challenge to date, they will do everything they can to influence the game – by setting tasks, introducing format twists, mastering the art of manipulation and using all they’ve learnt about reality shows and popularity to ensure Josh’s triumph.
Vicky previously starred on Geordie Shore while Amber won series five of Love Island and Pete Wicks is best known for starring on TOWIE.
In a joint Instagram post, shared with Shivani on Monday, Amber posted a clip in which she discussed how her undiagnosed ADHD affected her post-Love Island life before she was finally diagnosed at the age of 24.
She told Shivani, who has interviewed the likes of Stephen Bartlett and Jamie Laing: ‘I’m going to tell a story – I don’t think I’ve ever said this before.
‘I was getting too distracted, I was being too much of a perfectionist, there was so many things going wrong.
‘And I remember looking at what people were saying, and they were like, “Why is Amber not doing anything? She won the show, people seem to be doing loads more than her.”
On Monday, Amber Gill, 26, broke her silence on her ADHD diagnosis at the age of 24 for the very first time on Shivani Pau’s podcast A Millennial Mind
Amber and Shivani shared an Instagram clip in which Amber discussed life post her Love Island win (Amber pictured soon after she said she would get tested for ADHD in August 2021)
‘And I was like, “What is actually going on? Maybe I’ve got ADHD. I’ve functioned this way for 23, 24 years. Why do I need to look into it now?
‘Even after I got diagnosed, I still didn’t want to take medication. And I don’t know if that’s because there’s stigma around medication.
‘I was like: “I don’t want to change my personality. I don’t know what’s ADHD and what’s actually me as a human being.” So, I was really scared.’
The star first announced that she might be getting tested for ADHD in 2021, however she did not share the results.
She came out as gay in 2022, remarking that she couldn’t put herself through a relationship with a man anymore as they made her ‘feel ill’.
When asked why people were so up in arms after this, Amber replied: ‘Because I came from a very straight show.
‘I’ve never made it aware in people’s worlds that that could be a thing for me so I think people were like: “What? Where’s that come from?”‘
Her first public same-sex relationship was with Arsenal star Jen Beattie whom she dated from December 2022 to November 2023.
