I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2022 is on its way – who’s on the line up this year?
I’m A Celebrity will be back on ITV for a brand new series in less than one week!
Starting TONIGHT (6 November), the show will be back in its usual Australian camp after two years in a Welsh castle due to the pandemic.
But who will be heading into the jungle? After months of rumours, ITV has finally confirmed the official cast for Im A Celebrity 2022.
Here’s a round up of all the celebrities taking part…
Who’s on I’m A Celebrity 2022? Confirmed line up!
Olivia Attwood is set to be the first Love Island star to join I’m A Celebrity. Olivia is no stranger to jungle life, having previously taken on a bushtucker trial as part of former spin-off show Extra Camp.
She says: “Being part of I’m A Celebrity still hasn’t sunk in yet and when I first got the call to take part, I didn’t really believe it! It felt surreal because taking part in the jungle is the absolute pinnacle. It’s the crème de la crème of all shows and obviously I didn’t have to think about it. I said yes immediately!
“One of the things that will be nice will be to show a different side to me. I think people think I am high maintenance and I will struggle without make-up and nails but I am not that bothered and I think that might surprise people. I am happy to muck in.”
Iconic singer Boy George says: “I am bored of being iconic in the corner and if you want to compete in the world then being part of telly is part of that. This is the biggest show on TV and that is why I am doing it.
“And now I have made the decision, I don’t want to focus too much on what the experience might be like, but my intention is it is going to be amazing. It’s three weeks without make-up and three weeks is nothing. I have just done seven weeks on tour.”
Rugby star Mike Tindall, who is married to the late Queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips, will be the first ever Royal Family member to enter the jungle.
He says: “I am fully aware that anyone who has ever played rugby will go, ‘Yeah let’s stitch him up’. All my friendship group has that sort of humour and I know they will definitely want to vote for me! I am prepared to do quite a lot of challenges.”
TV and radio presenter Chris Moyles is going to be in this year’s camp, saying: “Some people say if something scares you, then do it. But I am a firm believer you shouldn’t scare yourself! I am a big fan of my own comfort zone, too. I am petrified of heights and getting into camp will be a massive challenge for me. Even that rickety rope bridge makes my heart start going.
“I have never jumped out of a plane or walked out on a plank on a high rise building before and I know I have got to suck it all up. In the past, I always said no to offers to take part. But this year, I didn’t say no immediately, and I ended up going to a meeting. Now I don’t know why I said yes. But I am a huge fan of the show and I know what I am letting myself in for! My friends who have done it before have told me I will have a great time.”
A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas says: “If I were crowned Queen of the jungle, it would be such a big moment for me. I think I would lose it! I have always worked hard but for whatever reason some people have doubted me. And so, if I were to win this show, it would be for everyone who questioned me, tried to break me, or put me down.
“I don’t know why they do but I keep showing that I can make it and be better than anyone imagined. It’s so exciting to be part of this series and I was in shock when I got the call from ITV. This programme is always something I have wanted to do as I like to test myself. It’s the cherry on the icing on the cake.”
Loose Women star Charlene White says of entering camp: “I was fine until they mentioned big spiders can crawl all over me when I am asleep which has freaked me out! I can’t stop thinking about it. There aren’t that many opportunities to have when you get older and it will be nice to see if I can do this.
“I’ve given birth to two kids in quick succession, survived that and lived to tell the tale! So, I feel it’s now right to take on another big challenge.”
Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner says: “I still can’t believe I am actually going to be in Australia doing I’m a Celebrity. It’s not sunk in yet and it feels surreal.
“And now it is getting closer, I want to enjoy everything about it. I have told all my friends to vote for me because I will feel like I have wasted it if I don’t do the trials. The trials are part of the I’m A Celebrity experience. It’s great to be going to Australia, the OG format.”
Comic Babatunde Aléshé has joined this year’s I’m A Celeb cast fresh from sitting on the Celebrity Gogglebox sofa alongside Mo Gilligan. He says: “I am going to see what happens but I know I will be doing a lot of screaming for sure!
“I am not looking forward to any trials but in terms of the one I am dreading the most, I saw one where someone was lying in a box and they put things into the box like snakes and mice. Now that would freak me out. I think I will lose it.”
Soap star Sue Cleaver is best known for her role as Eileen Grimshaw in ITV’s Coronation Street. She says of joining I’m A Celebrity: “Doing I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is never really something I considered doing before. But the pandemic happened and then this year, I have just turned 59 and so I decided for my 59th, I was going to shake things up a bit.
“I realised I needed something that would challenge me and I thought this show would be good – and so that’s why I am doing it.”
Footballer Jill Scott is set to enter the jungle camp fresh from triumphing at the Uefa Women’s Euro final in the summer. She says: “I feel like I have got a bit of
imposter syndrome to even be on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! It’s all a bit crazy at the minute but I am going with the flow and as soon as I was asked if I would like to take part, I said yes.
“It was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. I don’t know what I have let myself in for but my family are huge fans of the show and as soon as I told my mum and sister I was doing it, they were so excited.”
Ant & Dec will be back to host I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here from Sunday, 6 November.
The show will air nightly on ITV and ITV Hub for three weeks throughout the month.
