You vs. Chris and Kem (working title) will be produced by Twenty Six 03 Entertainment, the entertainment and formats joint-venture, founded last year by Duncan Gray and distributor Cineflix Media.

In the show, the pair will travel the country in a personalised ‘Bro Mobile’ and put their teamwork to the test as they compete in workplace or hobby-related tasks.

The pilot will after an episode of Love Island, which gets underway for a fourth outing tonight (4 June).

The pair previously teamed up for music-based two-parter Straight Outta Love Island, produced by ITV Studios and Motion Content Group, in which they explored rap, grime and hip-hop in October.

You vs. Chris and Kem is executive produced by Twenty Six 03 managing director Antonia Hurford-Jones and Gray.

It was ordered by ITV’s comedy and entertainment commissioning editor Amanda Stavri and head of digital channels and acquisitions Paul Mortimer.

You vs. Chris and Kem is Twenty Six 03’s second commission following BBC3 entertainment pilot Beauty Blowout, filmed in a Liverpool beauty salon.
