The 2023 season of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! is well under way – and one viewer who will be watching with more interest than most is This Morning host Rochelle Humes.


Rochelle's husband Marvin Humes – who first shot to fame as part of the boyband JLS – is one of the campmates in this year's I'm a Celeb line-up and speaking exclusively to to promote her cameo in the new Disney film Wish, Rochelle revealed what she and her kids have made of his performance so far.

"I’m so pleased, he looks like he's having a ball already," she said. "For me, I know how petrified he is of heights and now that he's jumped out of the plane [in the launch show] and that bit is sort of done, I feel a lot more at peace that he's just going to crack on and have a good time.

"But I mean, the nation could see it in his face – he looked like he was going to throw up."

She added that her children went to school the next morning proud of their father's efforts.

"What I love is they went to school saying, 'My dad jumped out a plane and he conquered his fears', so it was a little bit of a life lesson in there," she said.

"If he had said, 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' I would have had to rethink what I taught my children! But they were just delighted and we're all so proud."

Although she's glad that he appears to be having a good time so far, Rochelle doesn't want Marvin to have things too easy and says she hopes to see him doing as many Bushtucker Trials as possible.

"I'm doing the school run daily so he can eat some kangaroo anus or whatever it is," she joked.

Humes has a small cameo in Wish as a character who shares her first name – and she explained that starring in a Disney film was a dream come true for her, especially as the film marks the studio's centenary.

"I think the main appeal for me is the fact that it's a film that I would love my children to watch and I know that my kids would love," she said.

"I watched the trailer and I was like, 'Goodness me'. I think having a real diverse character front and centre who looks like my youngest daughter – literally it's uncanny – I love that, it's really important to me."

She added that her eldest daughter and her son have already seen the film due to being off school sick when she was going to a preview screening.

"And they were just in awe," she said. "I think that's what Disney do so well, is just the music and the special effects and everything. It's just so magical."

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! airs at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX and Wish is released in UK cinemas on Friday 24th November. Check out more of our Entertainment and Film coverage or visit our TV Guide and Streaming Guide to find out what's on.
