Happy Mondays’ Shaun Ryder and Bez to compete on ‘Storage Hunters UK’ celebrity special

Bob Mortimer, Carl Froch and Kimberly Wyatt will also compete on the one-off celebrity special

Happy Mondays members Shaun Ryder and Bez are to take part in a special celebrity version of Dave’s hit auction-based reality series Storage Hunters UK.

They will compete alongside fellow famous faces including comedian Bob Mortimer, boxer Carl Froch and former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt in the one-off celebrity special, which will air on Dave at 8pm on December 29.

Footballer Jimmy Bullard, actors Jimi Mistry and Lizzie Roper and comedians Ross Noble and Jenny Eclair will also compete to raise money for charity on the special.

Hosted by comedian and auctioneer Sean Kelly, Storage Hunters UK is based on a hit US reality series of the same name and finds competitors bidding on disused storage lockers filled with completely unknown and often very strange contents. Since launching on Dave last year, it has become one of the channel’s biggest hits.

Both Happy Mondays members have performed well on reality shows in the past. Bez won Celebrity Big Brother in 2005, while Ryder finished as runner-up on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2010. Ryder hosted his own paranormal TV series, Shaun Ryder On UFOs, on the History channel in 2013.
