*Actor Joe Swash won the eighth series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!*

Ant and Dec host as another group of unwitting celebrities swap their lavish lifestyles for three weeks in the Australian Outback.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! always serves up excitement, drama and some rather unusual creatures – and we’re not just talking about the celebrities – and, now in its eighth series, this year promises to be no different.

Panto King Christopher Biggins was crowned king of the jungle in 2007 and instantly won the public’s support by spending the night in a pit with 200 rats and interior designer Anna Ryder Richardson. We don’t know which was worse!!

Among the famous names rumoured to be taking part this year are controversial talk show host Robert Kilroy-Silk, presenter Dani Behr, glamour girl Linsey Dawn McKenzie and ex-EastEnders’ star Joe Swash. If he thought life was tough in Walford, he ain’t seen nothing yet!

Of course, the celebrities will have to take part in the dreaded Bushtucker Trials if they want to prove they can hack life in the great outdoors. And once again, viewers will get to choose their victims…

As well as having to deal with a witchetty grub or two, the stars will also have to cope with each other. Last year saw love blossom between actor Marc Bannerman and singer Cerys Matthews – but there was certainly no love lost between chef John Burton Race and PR guru Lynne Franks!

For those who can’t get enough of ITV1’s nightly jungle action, the show’s 2006 winner Matt Willis and wife Emma Griffiths will have all the gossip from Down Under on ITV2’s sister show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here Now!
