ITV has shared the first look at this year’s I’m A Celeb campmates - including controversial campmate Nigel Farage.
As ever, we’ve got a decent mixture of former soap stars, athletes, TV personalities and a politician, with this year’s line-up featuring Fred Sirieix, Nella Rose, Tony Bellew, Nigel Farage, Josie Gibson, Nick Pickard, Jamie-Lynn Spears, Danielle Harold, Sam Thompson, Marvin Humes and Grace Dent heading into the jungle.
Farage has proved to be a bit of controversial choice for viewers - causing a stir before the show has even aired.
Speaking about why he decided to join up, Farage said: "I want to test myself. Business, politics, media, I’ve done so many different jobs and generally I have been reasonably successful.
"But I have never been tested in quite this way.
"It’s such a mental test and maybe I will discover who I really am.
“I understood why Matt Hancock did it. He went in there with his reputation on the floor.
"The truth is after the banking issue I raised a few months ago, I was standing up for a million people who had lost their bank accounts, then winning at the TRIC awards, I am going in at a different stage of my career."
Meanwhile, Gordon, Gino and Fred star Sirieix has admitted to being ‘scared of everything’ - that will bode well, then.
Speaking ahead of the show, he said: “It’s all going to be hard, but it’s good to do things that take you out of your comfort zone.
"I have been training harder than I have trained in the last three or four years. I go to the gym, I go to boxing, I train like a machine - that’s my way to cope with doing I’m A Celebrity.
"This isn’t a 100m race. You are going in for the long haul.”
He added: “But I am going to be me. My aim is to be friends with everyone and have a good time. It would be great to win. I want to go as far as possible. It’s going to be very interesting and the great thing is it will nearly be Christmas when we come out!”
I'm A Celebrity launches on Sunday (19 November) on ITV at 9pm.
