I'm A Celebrity 2016 cast: Meet the two new celebrities joining the line up

I'm A Celebrity line up gets two newbies


Two new celebrities have been confirmed for the cast of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here 2016.

And they aren't that surprising.

As we all expected - and despite their denials - broadcasting legend Danny Baker and Homes Under The Hammer host Martin Roberts are entering the jungle.

But who are they?

Comic, screenwriter and radio DJ Danny is said to have scooped the biggest fee of the series so far with an undisclosed 'six figure deal'.

A source told The Sun newspaper previously: “Danny doesn’t need the money but producers made him an offer he just couldn’t refuse."

Danny previously denied rumours suggesting he was heading into the jungle, branding the idea "preposterous".

But hell be one of the twelve celebs in camp come tomorrow.

Meanwhile it's been claimed that producers reckon Martin will provide some humour in the camp.

Martin is best known for his presenting work on BBC One day time show Homes Under the Hammer, which has racked up over 1,000 episodes since its first series in 2003 and continues to go strong.

"He’s naturally very funny, but BBC1 viewers normally only get snippets from him as he goes from auction to auction on Homes Under the Hammer. Producers reckon he’ll go down well with viewers," an insider said.

Speaking before heading into the jungle, Martin joked: "I've been dieting like a silly thing for the last two weeks. I said to my wife, 'I've got two weeks and three stone to lose. How can I do it?' My wife said, 'Chop off your arm'."

The pair will make for a total of twelve celebs who have left their plush pads and luxuries far behind to brave up to three weeks taking on the harsh surroundings of the Australian jungle.
