LIVE BLOG: The Stars Of ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’ Land In Australia

It’s that time of year again. The 15th (!!!) series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here starts this Sunday, and this year’s cast have already started to land down under. Follow our live coverage to find out who is going into the jungle this year.

So far:

Former Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter was the first contestant to land on Saturday night. Jorgie’s name hasn’t been mentioned much in the run up to this series, potentially because she was a replacement for Stephanie Davis (who had to pull out due to a potentially fatal nut allergy).

Jorgie is no stranger to reality TV; she competed on two series of Dancing On Ice. She came second in her year, but was voted out during the first week of the All-Stars edition. Here she is doing Crazy In Love:

Former England footballer Kieron Dyer was the next celebrity to land in Australia. He says he’s just there to play football, but then Girls Aloud also told us their three-year break was only going to be for one (so..)

Kieron has played for Ipswich Town, Newcastle United, West Ham United, Queens Park Rangers and Middlesbrough United, as well as for England. This will be his first stint on reality tv, but if professional football is anything like our Year 8 P.E. lessons, this should be a breeze.

11:26: Nothing’s happened yet so let’s listen to this jungle-related bop:

11:42: Lady Colin Campbell has landed in Australia

Lady Colin Campbell is best known for her controversial royal biographies, including Diana In Private: The Princess Nobody Knows, which talks about Diana’s eating disorders and her affair with former The X Factor: Battle Of The Stars contestant James Hewitt.

10:50: Duncan Bannatyne is in Australia.

The Scottish businessman is best known for being one of the investors on Dragon’s Den. He was on the show for twelve series, leaving this year. On the show, he invested in takeaway website Hungry House, and for that reason alone should win I’m A Celebrity.

12:00: We’ve had two new arrivals overnight: George Shelley and Yvette Fielding.

George is one quarter of X Factor boyband Union J. After originally auditioning as a solo artist, George was plonked into boyband Triple J. They ended up coming fourth on The X Factor, and have had four UK Top 10s. Side note: George has really nice hair.


Yvette Fielding is best known for hosting Most Haunted, but she also used to host Blue Peter. Yvette accidentally tweeted that she would be joining the show, so it comes as no surprise that she arrived today. Here’s a video of her ghosthunting with Girls Aloud (just because we can):

14:35: The entire line-up has been announced.

One surprise addition to the line-up is Tony Hadley. The Spandau Ballet singer is the only name on the official line-up not to have been in the press over the last few days, and hasn’t landed in Australia yet.

Elsewhere, X Factor choreographer Brian Friedman also joins the line-up. Big X Factor fans may remember that Brian briefly replaced Louis Walsh in Series 4. He’s also choreographed for the likes of Britney Spears and *NSync.

Chris Eubank is a former professional boxer. Nicknamed Simply The Best, Chris won 45 of his 52 fights. We know very little about boxing, but that looks literally very good.

And last, and my no means least, is Susannah Constantine. The fashion presenter is best known for hosting What Not To Wear alongside Trinny Woodall. Since they left the show, the pair have taken their fashion shows global.
