Davidson: Highway to L plates

We've had celebrity ice skating, celebrity diving, and celebrity ski jumping and now TV bosses are reportedly working on a new series in which celebrities will give driving lessons to members of the public.

According to a report in The Sun, ITV is hoping to cash in on the success of Splash! and The Jump with a new show that has car crash viewing stamped all over it.

Provisionally licensed as "Driving With The Stars", the show wants the likes of Coronation Street favourite Julie Hesmondhalgh and former The Only Way Is Essex cast members Amy Childs and Joey Essex to take part.

They will be recruited to mentor "problem" drivers who have proved to be a menace behind the wheel. Celebrity Big Brother winner Jim Davidson, who was given a driving ban in 2011, is also gearing up to join the line-up.
