I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!
Radio Times
Review by:

Trinny and Susannah, darts champion Eric Bristow, Corrie’s Helen Flanagan, TOWIE’s Maria Fowler, Kate Middleton’s burlesque artist cousin Katrina Darling, former MP Louise Mensch, a couple of Olympic heroes and Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts: if we’re to believe the jungle drums this lot could all be trundling off for three weeks of hell in a hammock. There’s even been talk of Grace Jones – although no mention of whether she’ll bring her hula-hoop along with her.

Tonight we learn the truth as Ant and Dec welcome the latest tribe of “celebrities” to their new home, which is not going to be quite as opulent as the hotel where they meet their fellow campers — it’s usually a tricky social occasion as no one likes to let on that they don’t know who anyone else is. Then it’s off for three weeks of creepy-crawlies, cold showers and Bushtucker trials.

About this programme

1/19. Ant and Dec present as 10 famous faces wave goodbye to their lives of luxury and set up home among the creepy-crawlies of the Australian jungle for up to three weeks. They are former world heavyweight boxing champion David Haye, Helen Flanagan, best known as Coronation Street's Rosie Webster, entertainer Brian Conley, Tory MP Nadine Dorries, 1980s Doctor Who Colin Baker, Charlie Brooks (EastEnders' Janine Butcher), Hugo Taylor from Made in Chelsea, former Birds of a Feather star Linda Robson, darts ace Eric Bristow and ex-Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts. As usual, viewers decide which celebrities will face the dreaded Bushtucker Trials and one of them will eventually emerge as this year's King or Queen of the Jungle, taking the crown from reigning champion Dougie Poynter of McFly.
