I'm a Celebrity

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is back on ITV (UTV and STV) which can mean only one thing… the time has come for a brand new cast of celebrities to head down under and battle it out in TV’s toughest challenge.

Leaving their plush pads and luxuries far behind, our celebrity campers will spend up to three weeks taking on the harsh surroundings of the Australian jungle, with a whole host of brand new nasty surprises created just for them.

The ten celebs heading into the jungle for the new series are: Duncan Bannatyne OBE, Lady Colin Campbell, Tony Hadley, Yvette Fielding, Chris Eubank, Susannah ConstanJne, Brian Friedman, Jorgie Porter, Kieron Dyer and George Shelley

Last year saw motorcycle racer Carl Fogarty crowned King of The Jungle, with Jake Quickenden as runner up. The series saw Michael Buerk rapping with Tinchy Stryder, Kendra Wilkinson and Edwina Currie falling out in spectacular style and Gemma Collins going jungle AWOL after only a few days in camp. How will this year’s c, d and e list stars cope with being away from their loved ones? Sleeping in the wild? Lack of food? Sharing a camp with snakes, rats and creepy crawlies?

And perhaps worst of all, adapting to spending 24 hours a day with their camp mates? Ant and Dec will return as the show’s hosts, giving us all the gossip from the jungle and overseeing those infamous Bushtucker Trials.

The 2015 Jungle Stars

Brian Friedman

38 year old creative  director  Brian  Friedman  has  confirmed  he  is  quinng  this  year’s  the X  Factor  to  take  part  in  I’m  A  Celebrity  after  nine  years  working  on  the  show.  And  it  was  the  chance  to  walk  into  the  unknown  and  do  something  completely  different  that  made  him  realise  leaving  The  X  Factor  was  the  right  decision  to  make.

Jorgie Porter

Hollyoaks star  Jorgie Porter  is  hoping  to  take  plenty  of  cold  showers  in  the  jungle  as  she  promises  to  pack  lots  of  sexy  swimwear  outfits  that  will  get  skimpier  as  the  weeks  go  on.  Smiling,  the  actress  –  who  has  played  Theresa  in  the  Chester‐based  Channel 4  soap  for  the  last  seven  years  –  also  plans  to  ‘carry  some  rocks’  as  a  jungle  gym  workout  because  the 27 year old  doesn’t  want  to  lose  her  ‘bum’  from lack of food.

Susannah Constantine

Famous  for  her  no  nonsense  and  blunt  style  on  TV,  fashion  guru  Susannah  Constantine  has  promised  to  definitely  speak  her  mind  in  the  jungle  after  finally  caving  in  to  several  invitations  to  go  on  I’m  A  Celebrity.  Revealing  she  has  been  asked  for  many  years  to  go  into  the  jungle,  the  expert,  who  along  with  her  friend  Trinny Woodall  became  a  household  name  dishing  out  advice  on  what  clothes  suit  different  women,  is  also  hoping  she  will  overcome  her  fear  of  heights,  which  has  plagued  the 53 year old’s life  for  many  years.

George Shelley

Performing  with  Union  J  live  on  stage  and  The  X  Factor  is  definitely  far  easier  than  facing  the  bugs  and  snakes  in  the  jungle,  reckons  the  boy  band’s  singer  George  Shelley.  But  the  22 year old pop  heartthrob  says  he  is  determined  to  give  it  his  best  shot  as  he  embraces  life  on  I’m  A  Celebrity.  And  it  looks  like  there  could  be  plenty  of  potential  for  romance  on  this  year’s  show  as  George  confirms  he  won’t  rule  out  a  relationship  in  the  jungle.

Lady Colin Campbell

Lady  Colin  Campbell  is  swapping  her  luxurious  lifestyle  to  become  the  first  aristocrat  to  go  on  I’m  A  Celebrity.  And  the  66 year old,  who  famously  wrote  a  book  about  Princess  Diana  which  was  published  in  1992  and  detailed  her  affair  with  James  Hewitt,  admits  her  eldest  son  tried  to  persuade  her  not  to  take  the  challenge  on  because  he  felt  she  was  too  ‘civilised’  for  the  show.

Yvette Fielding

Former Blue Peter  presenter,  Yvette  Fielding,  is  famous  these days for  screaming  on  “paranormal” series Most  Haunted – where there is more chance of seeing an alien land and give a speech on good housekeeping than hear or see a ‘real ghost’. The 47 year old  has  vowed  not  to  screech  out  loud  on  I’m  A  Celebrity.  Readily  adminng  she  is  absolutely  petrified  of  anything  that  moves,  Yvette  says  she  has  made  a  promise  to  her  husband  and  children  that  she  won’t  scream  on  the  ITV  series.

Kieron Dyer

Former  England  football  player  Kieron Dyer  is  going  in  the  jungle  after  his  children  kept  begging  him  to  be  on  I’m  A  Celebrity.  And  the  kind-­hearted  star  is  donating  his  entire  fee  to  the  Jude  Brady  Foundation.  36 year old Kieron,  who  retired  from  football  two  years  ago  after  playing  for  Ipswich  Town,  Newcastle  and  West  Ham  as  well  as  England,  also  insists  he  definitely  would  prefer  it  if  one  of  his  fellow  campers  won  the  show  even  though  he  is  very  competitive.

Duncan Bannatyne

Former  Dragons’  Den  star  Duncan  Bannatyne has  vowed  not  to  use  his  own  famous  catchphrase  ‘I’m  Out’  in  this  year’s  jungle.  The  66-­‐year-­‐old  business  entrepreneur,  who  owns  a  string  of  hotels,  clubs  and  stage  schools,  was  renowned  for  the  way  he  used  the  BBC  show’s  catchphrase  in  his  trademark  strong  Scottish  accent  when  he  was  an  investor  on  the  programme,

Chris Eubank

49 year old British  boxer  Chris  Eubank  has  leapt  at  the  opportunity  to  go  in  this  year’s  jungle  because  he  says  it  will  be  his  first  ‘holiday’  since  the  age  of  16.  And  the  former  sportsman,  who  held  the  WBO  middleweight  and  super  middleweight  titles,  has  vowed  to  have  lots  of  fun  whilst  on  his  jungle  vacation.

Tony Hadley

He  may  be  one  of  the  most  popular  80’s  British  pop  stars  but  Spandau  Ballet’s  Tony  Hadley  reckons  the  jungle  will  be  far  tougher  than  performing  to  thousands  of  fans  on  stage.  But  the  55 year old singer,  whose  tracks  ‘Gold’  and  ‘True’  with  the  group  have  become  global  hits,  says  he  is  determined  to  enjoy  every  second  of  life  in  the  celebrity  camp.

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here NOW! also returns to ITV2 each night with Laura Whitmore, Joe Swash and David Morgan giving us the lowdown from the jungle. The ITV series is supporting Text Santa with 15p from every phone vote being donated to the charities involved in this years appeal.
