There are reportedly two late arrivals heading into the I’m A Celebrity camp at the end of this week and they’re both soap stars.
A fresh batch of famous faces have waved goodbye to their lives of luxury and set up home among the creepy-crawlies of the Australian jungle for up to three weeks.
I’m A Celebrity 2019 launched on Sunday night with a cast drawn from the worlds of TV, sport and entertainment, featuring former footballer Ian Wright, Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle, Radio 1 presenter Adele Roberts, comedian Andrew Maxwell, former EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa, DJ Roman Kemp, Olympian and TV personality Caitlin Jenner, ex-England rugby player James Haskell, RakSu singer Myles Stephenson, and TV and radio presenter Kate Garraway.
ITV bosses are planning to introduce two new celebrities into the camp this week, only days after ten celebs entered.
Coronation Street’s Andrew Whyment is reportedly the eleventh celebrity to enter the jungle this week.
Andrew is said to be picking up £100k for his stint in the jungle, according to The Sun.
The twelfth celebrity late comer is said to be EastEnders star Cliff Parisi.
The 59 year old, who played mechanic Minty Peterson and the gardener Fred Buckle on Call The Midwife, will enter the jungle with Andrew.
An ITV insider told The Mirror: “With Cliff and Andy we have got too big soap names joining the jungle and they’ll be a lot of fun,
“Cliff is the final piece in the puzzle and comes from two massive BBC shows. It will be interesting to see if he sees the funny side of things when he has been in there a while and the hunger and tiredness kicks in.”
I’m A Celebrity 2019 continues nightly on ITV.
