I'm A Celebrity 2013 contestants: Vincent Simone
Who has left luxury behind to face the bushtucker trials down-under?
Vincent Simone, 34, professional dancer
Who? Vincent is one half of ex-Strictly Come Dancing professional dancing pair 'Vincent and Flavia'.
Why take part?: Vincent wants to challenge himself after realising that his phobias have gone too far.
What he says: "I don’t like people shouting, anger or people with big heads. If I have to get something off my chest, I will. I don’t hide my emotions."
Ideal campsite comrade: Vincent has not mentioned one, but if Flavia was flown in he could entertain the camp with their tango.
Phobias: He has told the jungle that he is "scared of everything". This could be interesting!
Most likely to humilate himself: Failing multiple bushtucker trials and ballroom dancing over the wooden bridge.
Looking forward to: Italian Vincent wants to "inject some passion" into the jungle by teaching his campmates how to salsa.
Odds of a jungle romance?: Very slim as Vincent has a long-term partner and a child, Luca.
