The final few stars have arrived in Australia for I'm A Celebrity 2016 ahead of its launch on Sunday.

The new series kicks off on Sunday night on ITV after the channel confirmed this year's celebrity contestants on Monday night.

The line up includes Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo, ex England footballer Wayne Bridge, comic Joel Dommett and dancer Ola Jordan.

Also signed for the new series are actor Larry Lamb, Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt, Olympic hockey player Sam Quek and TV and Radio presenter Lisa Snowdon.

And they're joined by soap star Adam Thomas and TV personality Carol Vorderman-MBE who complete the I'm A Celebrity line up for 2016.

The first of the group touched down at the start of the week alongside hosts Ant and Dec, while Adam and Carol arrived last night.

"When they first approached me, I didn’t think I would hear anything back” said Adam. “Then I got a call to say they wanted me. I was like, ‘oh gosh’ I’m actually doing this.

“I had to think about it for a while as I do think it takes guts to go on I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!. I have been in my comfort zone for a while now and never really stepped out of it.”

He added: “This is such a big show that everyone has heard of. Yes, I am getting nervous as the day approaches when I go into the camp but it’s also exciting – and bonkers!”

Meanwhile, Carol said she was after an adventure due to having some "free time".

"I know people will ask ‘why does Carol need to do this?’ but I have never ever paid attention to what others think. I make my own decisions. I like the show and want to do it," the former Countdown presenter said.

I'm A Celebrity 2016 starts 9PM on Sunday night on ITV.
