Eric Bristow

Darts champ Eric Bristow gave up booze in order to enter I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, it's been revealed.

The Darts champ is on the list of rumoured stars set to be entering the jungle at the weekend, with the official line up expected to be confirmed later today.

The Daily Star reports that the famous drinker gave up boozing for three weeks in order to pass a medical test to take part in the ITV1 series.

But as soon as he was given the all clear, Eric was back drinking with pals at his local.

A pal told the newspaper today: “Eric said he stopped drinking for three weeks before the checks.

“But at the weekend he spent the whole afternoon lobbing back pints.

“He told people when he’s in the jungle he is prepared to eat anything – even kangaroo bollocks.”

We're looking forward to it!


Other stars said to be on this year's I'm A Celeb line up include former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan, comic Brian Conley, Made In Chelsea star Hugo Taylor and actress Linda Robson.

Eastenders duo Ricky Groves and Charlie Brooks, Doctor Who actor Colin Baker and Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts have also all been linked to the series, with the full line up set to be officially revealed later this week.
