This Years I’m A Celebrity Stars Confirmed!
Just days before the new series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is due to start, celebrities have been arriving in Australia, ready for their adventure in the infamous jungle.
So far the confirmed contestants include TV actress Jennie McAlphine, pop star Vanessa from The Saturdays and a former politician. This year will also see world-class boxer Amir Khan and YouTube sensation Jack Maynard join the line-up.
Rumours have been rife in recent weeks with who could be heading down under and now Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas has been confirmed along with Made In Chelsea star Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo.
Former MP and father of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Stanley Johnson, arrived in Australia ahead of the popular reality TV show. He said he was “excited” to be taking part in the show.
World-famous boxer Amir Khan signed up to I’m A Celebrity to “stay out of trouble” and said he would stay in shape while on the show by taking “gentle jogs”.
Former Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas is best known for playing the role of Warren Fox in the soap.
Best known for playing Fiz in popular soap Coronation Street, Jennie is taking a short break from the soap to enter the jungle.
Despite entering the jungle she reassured fans she would be returning to the cobbles saying, “Yeah, this is just a little holiday. What is happening to Fiz whilst I am away? That is a good question.”
Famous for being part of girl group The Saturdays, Vanessa said she’s scared of many of the things she will encounter in the jungle.
Speaking to press she said, “I am really excited to be here, it is my first time in Australia, I can’t wait to take part.
“I am scared of everything though, so I am also a bit nervous. It’s a bit of a mixture of nerves and excitement.”
Made In Chelsea star Georgia Toffolo, better known by her nickname ‘Toff’, arrived in Australia with three bags of luggage saying “I’ve packed a lot!”
Former footballer Dennis Wise arrived in Australia ready for the show wearing tracksuit bottoms and a hoodie.
