Revealed: The celebrities heading into the Australian Jungle


It’s one of the most eagerly awaited line-ups every year: the question of which celebrities are heading into the Australian jungle for I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Now, after speculation which began pretty much as soon as the last series finished, the line-up of famous faces heading onto the show this time around has been unveiled.
Former Countdown star Carol Vorderman, 55, and Strictly Come Dancing professional Ola Jordan, 34, are among the celebrities to have agreed to face their fears and head into the Jungle.
Others adding to the line-up are radio DJ Danny Baker, 59, and Gogglebox favourite Scarlett Moffat, 26.
Danny is said to be the most expensive campmate ever for producers, who agreed to pay him a six-figure sum to go into the Jungle just weeks after battling, and beating, cancer.
Soap actors who will be joining them are EastEnders’ Larry Lamb, 69, and Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas, 28.
Radio presenter and model Lisa Snowdon, 44, has also been seen flying into Brisbane Airport. Producers will be hoping that Lisa, who once famously dated actor George Clooney, will prove to be a draw in the same way that Myleene Klass pulled in viewers when she donned a bikini to bathe in the camp waterfall.
Making up the rest of the camp are comedian Joel Dommett, 30, Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo, 23, former footballer Wayne Bridge, 36, and Olympic hockey player Sam Quek, 28, and Homes Under The Hammer host Martin Roberts, 53.
While the ITV show will continue to be fronted by Geordie favourites Ant and Dec, the follow up show has had a name change from Get Me Out of Here Now! To Extra Camp, and has also had a change of line-up.
Following the departure of presenter Laura Whitmore, who has appeared on Strictly Come Dancing this year, the producers have brought in last year’s winner Vicky Pattison, along with Chris Ramsey.
Show favourite Joe Swash will be staying on, but will be joined by his girlfriend Stacey Solomon, who found fame on the X Factor.
Viewers will be waiting to see what this year’s show brings. Previous series have seen romance, rows, hysteria and shock departures.
The producers of the show have yet to confirm the line-up officially but past reports based upon celebrities arriving in Australia have often proved to be accurate.
