Boxing legend signs up for terrifying new reality show to live in the dark | The Sun

BOXING legend Chris Eubank has signed up for a terrifying new reality show to live in the dark.

The brainchild of Channel 4, Scared Of The Dark will see celebrities have their mettle tested by being denied light for days on end.



Chris, who is one of the best British super-middleweight boxers of all time, will have to survive in darkness for seven days in a specially constructed space.

A source told The Sun: "Chris is always up for new challenges, so when he was approached about this new reality series, he was well up for it.

"He's a tough guy from his years in the boxing ring, but this show will test even the strongest of characters. Not only is it physically tough, but living in complete darkness will be a massive mental challenge too."

He is going to be joining another sporting legend as we previously reported that Gazza is doing it.

Paul, who also played for Newcastle, has signed up for the new Channel 4 show in what will be the first time he’s appeared on an entertainment series in the UK since he was on The Weakest Link in 2009, back when it was still hosted by Anne Robinson.

Our insider said: "Despite the scale of the challenge, Gazza passed all his assessments with flying colours and filming on the programme will start shortly."

Earlier this year Gazza made a cameo in a BBC documentary about his life.
