I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here 2013 line-up: meet the contestants

Joey Essex, Laila Morse, Kian Egan, Lucy Pargeter, Steve Davis and Rebecca Adlington are among the brave celebs heading Down Under for series 13

It’s nearly time to head back Down Under to the I’m a Celebrity camp as ten more brave (or bonkers) contestants battle it out to be crowned king or queen of the jungle. You’ll be pleased to hear they’re a rowdy bunch, among them an Irish popstar, a former Miss Universe Great Britain, an EastEnders matriarch and Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel Air.


And with plenty of promises that bosses will crank up the toughness this year (we can only guess that means more crocs and critters), this lot had better bring their A-game to the Aussie jungle.

Here are the lucky ten…
