Latifah isn't the only celebrity heading to the Travel Channel - network bosses have also recruited actors including Jon Cryer, Eric Stonestreet, and Terry Crews to appear on Celebrity Adventure Club, formerly known as I Adventure. The show will follow the famous faces on a journey of discovery, with Two and a Half Men star Cryer learning all about space exploration, Modern Family's Stonestreet delving into World War II espionage, and The Expendables action man Crews teaching viewers about the rebirth of Detroit.

Celebrity Adventure Club is due to premiere in the US in August.
