Biography: Retired premier league footballer Kieron Dyer has scored a place in the jungle. Having played for Ipswich Town, Newcastle QPR, West Ham (yep, he moved around a lot…) as well as England, the footballer suffered injuries for years and didn’t actually play all that much football. But hopefully he’s back on top form for this new, slightly wilder competition…

Once a poster boy for 1990s England hopefuls, Kieron says, “I’d like to change people’s perceptions about footballers in general.”
