I’m A Celebrity 2020 line up: Meet new celebs Russell Watson and Ruthie Henshall

Who are I'm A Celebrity's new campers

Ruthie Henshall and Russell Watson have both been confirmed for the I’m A Celebrity 2020 line up.


The pair will join camp in the next episode tonight, 18 November at 9PM on ITV.

Ruthie Henshall is a West End star known for her roles in musical theatre shows including Cats, Chicago and She Loves Me.

Explaining her friend and former I’m A Celebrity star, John Barrowman, persuaded her to do the programme, the 53-year-old reveals “John was the one who told me I should go in and so he is to blame whether it is good or bad!”

Russell Watson is an operatic tenor who has released over 10 albums throughout his career.

Ahead of arriving in camp, Russell says: “I definitely think I will be the clown in the camp. And I will sing too as I have to keep my voice operating and working.”

The duo will join the current crop of ten celebrities which include author & podcaster Giovanna Fletcher, journalist Victoria Derbyshire, actress Beverley Callard, EastEnders legend Shane Richie and TV presenter Vernon Kay.


They’re joined by EastEnders actress Jessica Plummer, Paralympic Gold Medallist Hollie Arnold, ex Strictly professional AJ Pritchard, Radio 1 DJ Jordan North and athlete Sir Mo Farah.

In last night’s episode (17 November) hosts Ant and Dec went to camp to reveal that there had been no public vote for the trial. Instead, the duo revealed that all ten celebs would take part in the next trial, Stage Fright.

But the celebs are currently unaware that they will be joined by the new arrivals for the challenge.

Earlier in yesterday evening’s show, Jordan, Vernon and Beverley took on this year’s first eating trial, Frights Of The Round Table.

They all successfully ate all their meals and the group therefore won 10 of 10 stars.

Fronted by Ant and Dec, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here continues each night on ITV.


Alongside the main series, you can catch spin-off The Daily Drop via ITV Hub each morning from 7AM.
