I'm A Celebrity 2013 contestants: Alfonso Ribeiro
Who has left luxury behind to face the bushtucker trials down-under?
Alfonso Ribeiro, 42, actor
Who? Alfonso is best known for his role as Carlton Banks in the American sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, starring alongside Will Smith.
Why take part?: Claiming to have never failed anything in his life, Alfonso wants to see if this will be the first. “I accepted the offer because it was a chance to conquer some fears of mine.”
What he says: “I have not actually seen much of I’m A Celebrity, which is the reason why I am doing it. If I had seen more of it, I would probably say ‘hell no’.”
Most likely to humilate himself: Being grouchy after a lack of food, rapping the Fresh Prince theme tune and refusing to perform the ‘Carlton dance’.
Ideal campsite comrade: The Fresh Prince himself, perhaps?
Phobias: Snakes, lizards, creepy crawlies and small spaces.
Looking forward to: Seeing his wife and newborn when he’s released from the jungle.
Odds of a jungle romance?: None - Alfonso is married and adores his baby son.
