I’m A Celebrity 2017 line up gets new celebrities as Jack quits

The I’m A Celebrity 2017 line up is set to welcome some new names later this week.


It follows Jack Maynard making an unplanned exit from the show in Tuesday night’s episode.

Now a couple of extra celebrities are due to enter the jungle following launch.

Although the names of the newbies haven’t been confirmed just yet, comedian and radio host Iain Lee is rumoured to be one of them.

The Sun newspaper says that there is sure to be “fireworks” when the outspoken stand up joints camp.

“Iain isn’t afraid to speak his mind,” a source said. “He regularly rants and raves on his TalkRadio show and his listeners should expect the same from him in the jungle.”


“He’s very much in the mould of Danny Baker, who was also a late arrival last year,” the insider added. “Expect fireworks.”

Former Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale is also rumoured to be entering, in a move that could trigger a political backlash.

According to The Sun, Dugdale will travel to Australia this weekend for the ITV jungle show, which started on Sunday.

The 36-year-old is known for leading the Scottish Labour Party for two years, until she quit the role in August.

Right now the nine celebrities on the show following Jack’s exit include Made In Chelsea’s Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo; and Chelsea and England footballer Dennis Wise.

Joining them are Hollyoaks hunk Jamie Lomas; The Saturdays singer Vanessa White; and Boxer Amir Khan.

Also in camp as things stand are Coronation Street actress Jennie McAlpine; Football Wag Rebekah Vardy; Comedian Shappi Khorsandi; and Ex MP and father of Boris Johnson, Stanley Johnson.


The fearless celebrities entering the terrifying and legendary jungle camp will find themselves cut off from the outside world and praying the public doesn’t send them straight into a dreaded Bushtucker Trial.

I’m A Celebrity 2017 airs nightly on ITV.
