Gemma Collins, Bruno Tonioli and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall are among those to feature in the new series of CBBC's Celebrity Supply Teacher.

Made by BBC Children’s In-House Productions with a voiceover from former Coronation Street star Julie Hesmondhalgh, a roll-call of celebrities will take turns to inspire CBBC audiences with their favourite subjects.

Others to appear in the second series will include Kimberley Walsh, Bobby Berk, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Courtney Act, Kadeena Cox and Sarah Gordy.

TOWIE star Collins, who will give a business studies lesson, said: "I might be Britain’s number one reality star and best loved diva but being a celebrity supply teacher has been fantastic.

"I have been passionate about business ever since I was a child. We were quite poor growing up, we didn’t have luxuries, and seeing my father set up his own business and seeing how our lives changed really motivated me to become a business person myself."

Other lessons will include a language class from Strictly judge Bruno Tonioli, history from Repair Shop guru Jay Blades and an English lesson from journalist and BBC Europe Editor, Katya Adler.

The new series starts on November 16th.
