I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! is only days away from returning to the jungle, as Ant and Dec are set to welcome stars from Hollyoaks, First Dates, EastEnders and more. Before the celebrities make their trek into the outback, let's meet them...
Jamie Lynn Spears
How You'd Know Them: Zoey 101 actress and singer
Why They're Going Into The Jungle: "There is literally every misconception you can have on a person about me so I don’t take any of it seriously. But I do think going on I’m A Celebrity will be a
nice way for people to see the real me. This is an opportunity to be myself and do something really cool and have some awesome experiences in the meantime."
How You'd Know Them: Made in Chelsea star and DJ
Why They're Going Into The Jungle: "I am so excited about taking part in I’m A Celebrity, it still feels like a dream. I feel like a competition-winner taking part. It was an absolute resounding ‘yes’ when I got approached. In fact, they didn’t even need to ask! I am a huge fan of the show. Ant and Dec are my idols too, and it’s going to be really surreal meeting them."
Why They're Going Into The Jungle: "I am most looking forward to being at one with nature. And I hope I learn new things about
myself. I hope I can push myself more than I think I can. Eating trials? I have got to try and close my eyes and not think about what it is I am eating. Heights? I don’t like heights either. To be fair, I am not liking a lot of things that the jungle throws at you but I want to
give it all a go."
How You'd Know Them: First Dates maitre d'
Why They're Going Into The Jungle: "I thought, ‘OK this is a challenge’ and I knew I wanted to do it. It’s a challenge to be away from my friends, family, comfort, only drinking water, no coffee, no wine, no mustard on my steak and – in fact – no steak! I am seeing this as a wellness retreat. It’s an opportunity to get closer to myself, inside my head, and to see life through a different lens and in a place I feel uncomfortable."
How You'd Know Them: YouTube star
Why They're Going Into The Jungle: "I am terrified but I’m trying to think of the bigger picture. In this life, you have to face up to your fears. Yes, I might scream the whole time, but I am going to
think about feeding human beings and I am going to try my best."
How You'd Know Them: Politician and TV host
Why They're Going Into The Jungle: "I want to test myself. Business, politics, media... I’ve done so many different jobs and generally I have been reasonably successful. But I have never been tested in quite this way. It’s such a mental test and maybe I will discover who I really am."
How You'd Know Them: Food critic
Why They're Going Into The Jungle: "I have been through a really difficult time over the last four or five years. My dad had dementia, I cared for him and I lost him. Mum had cancer and I lost her. I think that this has made me very strong and resilient. This is going to be a big challenge and, now I am older, life is for living and it’s one of the reasons why I said yes."
How You'd Know Them: JLS singer
Why You're Going Into The Jungle: "When I first told Rochelle [his wife, the singer and presenter], she thought I was doing a prank on her. She thought I was nuts and she still can’t believe I’m doing it! This is the most daring thing I have ever done and I have never challenged myself this way before. It’s one million percent harder than performing on stage and I woke up with knots in my stomach this morning thinking about it. But this programme has been on my bucket list for years. It’s the first time I’ve been asked to do it, so I jumped at the opportunity."
How You'd Know Them: NTA Award-winning EastEnders actress
Why They're Going Into The Jungle: "It’s definitely going to be nice to be myself and just have fun. The parts I have been playing have involved heavy stuff and to just be me is exciting. I am single and no ‘I am not looking for love’! It’s been a crazy, crazy year and so why not top it off with the craziest thing ever by doing this?! It’s definitely a shock to the system, and I am both excited and nervous. This is so much tougher than anything or any role I have ever done before as it is all so new."
How You'd Know Them: Hollyoaks actor
Why They're Going Into The Jungle: "This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and as soon as I was approached, I said ‘yes’. I am not
quitting Hollyoaks to take part. My bosses have been really supportive of me doing it. Now it is getting near to going into camp, I am so excited. I am obviously not looking forward to eating kangaroo balls but at the same time, I am looking forward to the trials – that’s the fun part of doing this show. I love the ones where you climb up or jump for a star. And I like ones getting submerged in water. I can’t wait now! This is so out of my comfort zone and it’s the best show you can do."
