I'm A Celebrity 2018 Full Line Up: Emily Atak, Harry Redknapp, John Barrowman And More Confirmed

The official 2018 lineup for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! has been announced.

Leaving their plush pads and luxuries far behind, the 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 surprises created just for them.

This is the stuff TV dreams are made of.

The ten celebrities heading into the I'm a Celebrity Jungle for the new series are:

Football manager Harry Redknapp. The 71-year-old says he's 'not keen' on heights so no doubt there will be a challenge to test him. The first rule of I'm A Celebrity club, does he not know anything?

The former Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham manager claims that he's never watched the programme so doesn't have a clue what to expect.

He said: "There's nothing tougher than being a manager of a football team when things aren't going well. When the results are bad, believe you me being a manager is a very tough, lonely occupation.

"You feel responsible however many people support your team every week. The buck stops with you. You haven't got many friends when it's not going well as a football manager. So no I don't think doing this will be tougher.

"But to be honest, I have not actually watched the programme! I watch sport all day and all night when I'm at home and we are out three to four nights a week."

Another familiar face will be Inbetweeners star, Emily Atack.

The 28-year-old has not ruled out finding love in the jungle and said: "I am at an age where I want to flip things on the head and do something mad and exciting.

"And this is definitely very exciting! I couldn't say no. I don't have any real phobias but I don't like creepy crawlies just like everyone else."

John Barrowman MBE will be gracing our screens this year. His phobias include confined spaces and jumping out of planes.

He also said that if he is crowned he would like to be gender fluid, saying: "I would be over the moon if I won. I would be the King or Queen of the Jungle."

TV presenter Nick Knowles is another camp mate this year. He said: "I'd like to think I will do well under pressure but we will find out. I don't have any phobias. Anything I have been nervous about in the past, I have gone out and done it, as I don't like being frightened of things.

"I am used to physical things and I would sleep on a snooker table if I needed to so that (being in the jungle) shouldn't hold too many problems for me."

As for whether he'd like to be crowned 'King of the Jungle', Nick insists it's the taking part that is important to him. We all know you go in it to win it, he's not fooling us.

ITV's 'The Governess' is another huge signing for I'm A Celeb. Anne Hegerty, 60, appears on The Chase and will be going to Australia to be herself rather than her on screen persona.

She said: "I am going to miss the peace and quiet and I am going to be way out of The Governess' comfort zone in all of this. I will come across a lot more nervous than I do on the show. It will be interesting for people to see me as Anne."

Other contestants include The X Factor's Fleur East, who says she is scared of 'everything' in the jungle; The Vamps pop star James McVey, who believes his role in the camp will be 'the mediator'; and former Eastenders actor Rita Simons, who played Roxy Mitchell for a decade and was persuaded to go on I'm A Celebrity by Larry Lamb, who was on the show in 2016.


Coronation Street actress Sair Khan will also enter the jungle this year as well as Hollyoaks actor, Malique Thompson-Dwyer.

This year's I'm A Celebrity...hosts are Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby.

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! starts on Sunday 18 November at 9pm on ITV.
