Channel 4 names the three celebrities who will wear their own rubbish for a new series aiming to highlight the issue of recycling.

Liverpool legend John Barnes, Atomic Kitten's Kerry Katona and fashion model Jodie Kidd are to wear their own rubbish for a new Channel 4 show designed to highlight the issue of waste and recycling.

In the one-off programme, Trash Monsters, the trio will don special suits and aim to reduce their carbon footprints, with any rubbish they do generate getting attached to the suits for the duration of the project.

Comedian Jon Richardson, who will host the show, said: "We have reached the stage of impending climate catastrophe where a rodent-looking comedian is forced into making well-meaning celebs go and wear their trash.

"I believe Trash Monsters will be funny, enlightening and an incredibly vivid depiction of how easily we all accumulate vast amounts of waste."

Harjeet Chhokar, commissioning editor for factual at C4, added: "This is a brilliant mix of entertainment and education for a very important issue.

"Here we'll visibly see how much rubbish an individual can accumulate in a relatively short period of time.

"Plus, there's a great opportunity to delve into the 'trash habits' of the celebs taking part and find out what they will do to change them."

The 90-minute special is expected to air later this year.
