“I am hoping to have some good times, a good laugh and I am sure I won’t get on with everybody,” he says. “But I just think it’s going to be an incredible experience doing I’m A Celebrity. I will give as good as I get! I hopefully can cheer people up when they are feeling down and muck in, too. But I do snore a bit!”

This Morning’s Josie Gibson, a familiar face to fans of the daytime show, is set to bring her winning spirit to the jungle. The Big Brother 2010 winner expressed her main goal as pushing herself to win as many stars as possible for her fellow campmates. She won over the public in 2010 and could’ve even won Ultimate Big Brother if she hadn’t left, can she claim another crowning? Her phobias include insects and spiders.
“I am most looking forward to being at one with nature,” she adds. “And I hope I learn new things about myself. I hope I can push myself more than I think I can. Eating trials? I have got to try and close my eyes and not think about what it is I am eating. Heights? I don’t like heights either. To be fair, I am not liking a lot of things that the jungle throws at you but I want to give it all a go.”

“It’s been a crazy, crazy year and so why not top it off with the craziest thing ever by doing this?! It’s definitely a shock to the system,” Harold states. “And I am both excited and nervous. This is so much tougher than anything or any role I have ever done before as it is all so new.”

Social media influencer Nella Rose has a massive following on TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube. She joins the cast to hopefully engage younger audiences. With her promise to run a Zumba class every morning, Rose aims to keep the camp’s morale and humour high. She stated that she is fearful of everything, suggesting she may not adapt quite so well to the jungle.
“My family have been laughing hysterically ever since I told them I was taking part,” admits Nella. “And they asked me why I agreed to do this but I’ve been watching I’m A Celebrity ever since I was a child and I still remember Ian Wright locked up in a room with an Ostrich. It’s so iconic and it’s why I said ‘yes’ immediately.”

She’s another star who has stated that she is scared of everything.
“Everything I have seen I have been afraid of. Absolutely every one of these trials I am dreading,” she states. “I haven’t looked at any of them and thought, ‘Oh cool, I could do that one’. This is going to be terrifying.”
