It was reported a few weeks back that MTV were set to bring back the hit celebrity prank show Punk’d and that, while Ashton Kutcher would be onboard in a producing capacity, the show would be getting some new hosts. It has now been claimed that two of those hosts will be Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, as well as a whole bunch of other celebrities.
The plan is for a different celebrity to host the show each week, as they go out and attempt to Punk their celebrity friends. MTV plans to premiere the new season of Punk’d on March 19 and some of the other stars aiming to Punk their pals include Kellan Lutz, Bam Margera and Dax Shepard. With a different star hosting each week, the show is given a new edge and should be more than capable of emulating the success of the past.
Punk’d was made famous by Ashton Kutcher and his team of helpers as they played pranks on some of their nearest and dearest. Some of the best pranks to ever appear on Punk’d included those done to Justin Timberlake, Zac Efron, Beyoncé and Lindsay Lohan. Be sure to tune in to MTV, when Punk’d returns for a brand new season on March 19.
