Who’s on I’m A Celebrity 2023? Full line up!
This Morning presenter Josie Gibson admits: “Now I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is fast approaching, it’s sinking in and I am feeling anxious.
“I keep thinking, ‘Sh*t, I am actually doing this’. I know I have taken on challenges for This Morning in the past but I don’t know if I’ve taken on too much here. It’s all becoming very real.”
Soap star Nick Pickard, best known for his portrayal of Tony Hutchinson in the Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks, says: “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and as soon as I was approached, I said ‘yes’. I am not quitting Hollyoaks to take part. My bosses have been really supportive of me doing it.
“Now it is getting near to going into camp, I am so excited. I am obviously not looking forward to eating kangaroo balls but at the same time, I am looking forward to the trials – that’s the fun part of doing this show. I love the ones where you climb up or jump for a star. And I like ones getting submerged in water. I can’t wait now! This is so out of my comfort zone and it’s
the best show you can do.”
JLS singer turned presenter Marvin Humes reveals: “When I first told Rochelle, she thought I was doing a prank on her. She thought I was nuts and she still can’t believe I’m doing it! This is the most daring thing I have ever done and I have never challenged myself this way before. It’s one million per cent harder than performing on stage and I woke up with knots in my stomach this morning thinking about it.
“But this programme has been on my bucket list for years. It’s the first time I’ve been asked to do it so I jumped at the opportunity.”
Jamie Lynn Spears
US actress and singer Jamie Lynn Spears, the younger sister of Britney Spears, has had a tumultuous relationship with her sibling, who recently spilled all in a brand new memoir.
“There is literally every misconception you can have on a person about me so I don’t take any of it seriously,” she explains. “But I do think going on I’m A Celebrity will be a nice way for people to see the real me. This is an opportunity to be myself and do something really cool and have some awesome experiences in the meantime.”
Former MP Nigel Farage says: “I want to test myself. Business, politics, media, I’ve done so many different jobs and generally I have been reasonably successful. But I have never been tested in quite this way. It’s such a mental test and maybe I will discover who I really am.
“I understood why Matt Hancock did it. He went in there with his reputation on the floor. The truth is after the banking issue I raised a few months ago, I was standing up for a million people who had lost their bank accounts, then winning at the TRIC awards, I am going in at a different stage of my career.”
Fresh from her win at the National Television Awards, soap actress Danielle Harold is joining the cast of I’m A Celebrity this autumn.
She says: “It’s definitely going to be nice to be myself and just have fun. The parts I have been playing have involved heavy stuff and to just be me is exciting. I am single and no ‘I am not looking for love’!
“It’s been a crazy, crazy year and so why not top it off with the craziest thing ever by doing this?! It’s definitely a shock to the system and I am both excited and nervous. This is so much tougher than anything or any role I have ever done before as it is all so new.”
First Dates maître d Fred Sirieix is swapping a road trip with Gordon Ramsay and Gino D’Acampo for a spell in the jungle with Ant & Dec.
He says: “I knew it was serious when I got the call. I got scared and I don’t like to be limited by fear. But then I thought, ‘Ok this is a challenge’ and I knew I wanted to do it. It’s a challenge to be away from my friends, family, comfort, only drinking water, no coffee, no wine, no mustard on my steak and – in fact – no steak!
“I am seeing this as a wellness retreat. It’s an opportunity to get closer to myself inside my head and to see life through a different lens and in a place I feel uncomfortable.”
Restaurant critic and broadcaster Grace Dent shares: “Everything is filling me with a real sense of dread. But I am especially dreading being really hungry because I tend to eat four or five posh meals out a week because I am a restaurant critic.
“I know they are going to give me an eating trial and I am dreading putting even worse things in my mouth than I have in the past in fancy restaurants! I think I will be writing very stiff columns about the jungle food when I come out!”
While his partner Zara McDermott takes to the ballroom on Strictly Come Dancing, Sam Thompson is set to jet off Down Under for a stint in the Aussie camp.
The Made In Chelsea star says: “I am so excited about taking part in I’m A Celebrity, it still feels like a dream. I feel like a competition winner taking part. It was an absolute resounding ‘yes’ when I got approached. In fact, they didn’t even need to ask! I am a huge fan of the show.”
TV personality and social media influencer Nella Rose is set to be this year’s youngest contestant.
She says: “My family have been laughing hysterically ever since I told them I was taking part. And they asked me why I agreed to do this but I’ve been watching I’m A Celebrity ever since I was a child and I still remember Ian Wright locked up in a room with an Ostrich. It’s so iconic and it’s why I said ‘yes’ immediately.”
More rumoured names for the I’m A Celebrity cast
