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.
