Keith Lemon's ITV comedy panel show, Celebrity Juice, has been commissioned for a 15th series and will celebrate the milestone by airing the first episode live.

Lemon, who is the alter-ego of Leigh Francis - and his glamorous duo of Holly Willoughby and Fearne Cotton, will feature on the first UK panel show to air a live episode, ITV said.

The hour-long live special will be broadcast from Elstree Studios and celebrity names such as This Morning's Phillip Schofield and I'm A Celebrity winner Vicky Pattison are confirmed to appear on the show.

Lemon said: "I've done it loads of times. But I've never done it with Fearne and Holly.

"Actually, I have done it with Holly but never done it with both Holly and Fearne at the same time, whilst people watch! Looking forward to doing Celebrity Juice live! What can go wrong?"

Talkback managing editor and Celebrity Juice producer Leon Wilson said: " What better, and terrifying, way to start than with a live episode.

"Keeping Keith, Holly and Fearne in check on any recording of the show is always a challenge, so literally anything could happen this time round."

The new ITV2 series will air in Spring.
