“You’re now gladiators, and your fate will be decided by a new camp leader,” says Dec. “All hail the Emperor!”
But in this first-look clip from I’m A Celebrity, there is less hailing and more giggling as Noel Edmonds strolls onto the platform to a trumpet fanfare.
The camp’s new Emperor makes his grand entrance dressed in a laurel wreath, cape, purple sash, shorts and hiking boots.
It’s a little undignified, especially given that it’s pouring down in Australia and everyone else is dressed in waterproof macs. “Hail – literally.” He observes. “And rain.”
After much speculation, Edmonds has entered the camp as the final contestant for 2018.
Confirming his appearance, he said: “I am going to win because I promise the British public if they vote for me, I will retire from television and I will never appear again. There’s a deal that I am striking with the great British public who have supported me over the years – they make me ‘King of the Jungle’ and I will retire and never appear again!”
