Celebrity 5 Go To Lanzarote

The latest series of Celebrity 5 go to….for Channel 4 sees Lanzarote featured as the destination with several British celebrities, including Bianca Gascoigne, pitted against each other to win the competition through a series of challenges set around the island. The programme will air in the UK in June and at present the identity of the winner is a closely guarded secret.

Amongst the celebrities taking part are Bianca Gascoigne, glamour model and step-daughter of Paul Gascoigne and Ken Morley, who plays Reg Holdsworth in Coronation Street. Filming took place over the Easter weekend and the final challenge was completed on Friday 29th April.

Amongst the activities organised for the competitors was a pirate treasure hunt on the neighbouring island of La Graciosa, which included diving underwater for clues. The tiny island off Lanzarote’s northern tip is rumoured to be the setting of Robert Louis Stevenson´s Treasure Island. The final challenge for the contestants involved the creation of a traditional salt carpet in Arrecife, using the island´s iconic Manrique logo as the basis of their design.
