Comedians Jenny Eclair and Dom Joly are said to be planning on making a surprise entrance into the I'm A Celebrity jungle later today. The pair, who will parachute in, will be joined by This Morning presenter Alison Hammond who will enter the camp in the next few days, according to The Sun.
Jenny revealed how she was one of the "backup" celebrities and had been called to fly out t Australia last weekend. "One moment I was in my bath in Camberwell, the next I was at Heathrow," she said.
"I'm on the reserve bench. I think there are eight of us. I hope I'm fourth on the list because I have a horrible feeling I could lose it in minutes. I don't like spiders and snakes."
An ITV source denied there were 8 celebrities being flown out to Australia, but wouldn't confirm how many celebrities were on stand-by here in the UK.
It is understood ITV have flown in Jenny to help keep numbers up should one of the other celebrities walk out.
