I'm A Celebrity 2013 contestants: Kian Egan
Who has left luxury behind to face the bushtucker trials down-under?
Kian Egan, 33, pop star
Who? Kian is a former member of the chart-topping band Westlife, whose hits include “Flying Without Wings” and “What About Now”.
Why take part?: Camping in the jungle is “a pretty cool thing to do”, he reckons. “For me, I have had so many amazing opportunities in my life and I see this as another one. Television is what I want to do now.”
What he says: “Without a shadow of a doubt, the hardest thing is going to be being away from my boy.” Kian’s son Koa turns two in December.
Most likely to humiliate himself: Refusing to sing a Westlife song when everybody wants him to and crying all the time.
Phobias: The coffin challenge - tougher than he looks, Kian is not really scared of anything else.
Ideal campsite comrade: Someone who will take on the role of entertainer, so that he's not pushed into it.
Looking forward to: Enjoying some time learning more about himself without his mobile or iPad for distraction.
Odds of a jungle romance?: None - he’s happily married to wife Jodi.
