I'm A Celebrity 2016 contestants split into two teams in first twist

I'm A Celebrity spoilers!


The I'm A Celebrity 2016 cast have been split in two for their first challenge this year.

Leaving their plush pads and luxuries far behind, a total of ten celebrity campers will spend up to three weeks taking on the harsh surroundings of the Australian Jungle, with a whole host of brand new nasty shocks created just for them.

And the first surprise has already been revealed, before the group have even entered the jungle.

The I'm A Celebrity 2016 celebrities heading into camp for the new series include Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo, ex England footballer Wayne Bridge, comic Joel Dommett, dancer Ola Jordan and actor Larry Lamb.

Joining them are Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt, Olympic hockey player Sam Quek, TV and Radio presenter Lisa Snowdon, soap star Adam Thomas and TV personality Carol Vorderman-MBE.

Last night in Australia the group got their first task as they were split into two rival teams.

On one side was Scarlett, Larry, Lisa, Wayne and Sam.

The other was Carol, Ola, Jordan, Joel and Adam.

Each will take part in a separate challenge with Carol's going first as they were told to 'walk the plank'.

Anyone with a fear of heights would dread this task as the celebs had to each walk out over the edge of a 32 story building along a narrow piece of wood which was full of gaps.

An eyewitness told The Sun newspaper: “Joel looked like he was going to bottle it. The whole team, and Ant and Dec, were cheering him on and shouting encouragement from the sidelines. He was bricking it and was shaking a lot.”

I'm A Celebrity will begin on TV on Sunday night on ITV.
