Jamie Lynn Spears is headed to the jungle.
The actor and little sister of Britney has been announced as a castmember on the latest season of U.K. reality survival show “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” alongside British right-wing politician Nigel Farage and morning show host Josie Gibson.

Farage is best known as the face of Brexit in the U.K. while Gibson is a regular host on troubled ITV daytime show “This Morning.”
“I’m a Celebrity,” which begins on Nov. 19 on U.K. network ITV and is set to last approximately three weeks, sees contestants dropped off in a remote part of the Australian jungle where viewers will vote for them to take on a range of repulsive challenges ranging from eating kangaroo testicles to being immersed in a pit full of creepy crawlies.
Joining Spears, Farage and Gibson on the show are “Made in Chelsea” star Sam Thompson, TV presenter Fred Sirieix, YouTuber Nella Rose, food critic Grace Dent, pop star Marvin Humes, “Eastenders” actor Danielle Harold and “Hollyoaks” star Nick Pickard.
Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, known collectively as Ant and Dec, return to host the series.
Spears, who has recently appeared on a “Zoey 101” reboot and “Dancing With the Stars,” admitted the SAG-AFTRA strike had prompted her to do a lot more reality television. “I think it is so far out of my comfort zone and this year with SAG being on strike, I have said ‘yes’ to a lot of unscripted projects,” she said in a press pack for the show. “I am really enjoying throwing myself into these experiences.”
Admitting she is “scared of everything,” the actor added she was hoping the jungle — where contestants often find themselves having intimate conversations over the campfire — would be a “nice chance to show who I really am.”
