Who's who guide to the official I'm A Celeb line up including Hollyoaks favourite Jamie Lomas and football star Dennis Wise...
Before we meet everyone in this year’s I’m A Celebrity, here’s a team shot of Jamie Lomas and co!
And here’s out who’s who guide…
Jennie McAlpine, 33
Best known for: Playing Fiz in Corrie.
Jennie said: “I don’t like injustice. If people are being mean I would stand up for
someone – but in the right way.”
Dennis Wise, 50
Best known for: Being part of Wimbledon’s Crazy Gang side and captaining Chelsea.
Dennis said: “To win the Jungle? It would be lovely but I am not sure I am going to be the winner of this show. I’ve upset too many football supporters over the years. But maybe Chelsea fans will vote for me.”
Rebekah Vardy, 35
Best known for: Being married to Leicester City footballer Jamie Vardy
Rebekah said: “I am so excited but I’ve also been waking up in the middle of the night sweating and having nightmares about bugs crawling around my feet.”
Jack Maynard, 22
Best known for: Being a YouTube vlogger!
Jack said: “There are going to be people going ‘Who is this kid?’ but on YouTube I am very much myself and I will bring that personality to the camp,” he reveals. “I do feel lucky to be in this position and of course, I think everyone will hit the wall at some point but you do have to remember what an amazing show you are on.”
Shappi Khorsandi, 44
Best known for: Being a stand-up comedian, appearing on shows like Just a Minute and QI.
Shappi said: “It would be amazing to win this. The only thing I have won before is the egg and spoon race in 1981. But when I am in there, I don’t want to see other people as competitors. That would take the fun away. It is not what I am about and why I am in there.”
Amir Khan, 30
Best known for: Being a former world boxing champion.
Amir said: ““I am one guy who hates spiders. Whenever I see a spider at home, I get my sister to move it. I just don’t deal with it. I hope I don’t come across any of them when I am in the Jungle but I know I am going to. Will I scream? Yes definitely but maybe this is the time where I face my phobias! I also hate snakes and heights too.”
Stanley Johnson, 77
Best known for: Being the dad of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson!
Stanley said: “I have to tell you I have never watched the show. It’s all totally new to me, I know absolutely nothing about it but I’ve been told about it and obviously I am ready to give it a go. I don’t think I am dreading anything. I am looking forward to being with the fellow competitors, contestants. I say that because it is a competition isn’t it?”
Vanessa White, 28
Best known for: Being a singer with The Saturdays
Vanessa said: “I told the rest of the group just before I went to Australia. I kept it a secret for ages but I had to tell them in the end as I really wanted to. I just know they will vote for me to do the trials, as they will want to see me scream and shout.”
Jamie Lomas, 42
Best known for: Starring as Warren Fox in Hollyoaks
Jamie said: “I have finished on Hollyoaks now. I had to make a decision – whether to sign or take the gamble. The gamble was I wanted to do this. And I felt it came at the right time. And it has paid off because I am doing it.”
Georgia “Toff” Toffolo, 23
Best known for: Being in Made In Chelsea
Georgia said: “I am really excited I won’t have to do that and I am looking forward to
not putting make-up on or having my hair done. I’ve been doing Made In Chelsea for four years now and everything is so fast paced. I am looking forward to being away from that.”
I’m A Celebrity starts on ITV this Sunday at 9pm.
