We couldn’t be more excited right now!

Joe Sugg, Alfie Deyes and Marcus Butler will be spearheading Release The Hounds, a new series of the beloved ITV2 show. If you’re not familiar with Release The Hounds, it’s a horror themed gameshow where celebrities are put to the test via a series of gruesome challenges… But who will survive?

Joe, Alfie and Marcus will be taking part in the “Freaked And Famous” version of Release The Hounds, which is set to be released in 2017. The show will focus on a series of celebrity teams – and obviously we’re cheering on Team YouTube!

The show will consist of seven one-hour episodes, with a trio of celebrities taking part in each one. Promising the scariest tasks ever, Release The Hounds will focus on mental and physical challenges where the celebs have to essentially out-run a pack of dogs and protect a huge wad of cash. If the celebrities manage to get through the challenges, the cash is theirs (for charity, of course)

As well as three of our all time favourite YouTubers, other celebrities taking part include huge names such as Geordie Shore stars Marnie Simpson, Chloe Ferry and Nathan Henry.

Alfie naturally headed to social media to reveal the news of their up-coming TV apperance and it’s safe to say everyone got rather excited!

Alfie was supported by everyone from Zoe Sugg, Mark Ferris and Bethan Leadley– although there’s been no word from Marcus Butler  and Joe Sugg is on a flight to the other side of the globe so he can very much be forgiven!

This won’t be the first time on TV for the trio- Alfie Deyes has been on This Morning, Joe Sugg has been on BBC Breakfast as well as having Hit The Road on E4 and Marcus Butler recently took part in Celebrity Masterchef. We can’t wait to see how the boys get on and it’s another incredible step for Team Internet as YouTube stars are even further recognised for their talent and mass appeal.

Bring on the hounds!
