I'm A Celebrity 2013: Rebecca Adlington to join Joey Essex in the jungle
Wednesday 13 November 2013
Rebecca Adlington and Joey Essex are among the ten celebrities who have signed up to publicly humiliate themselves in the name of fame in this year’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
No politician has dared to follow in Nadine Dorries’ footsteps last year, but plenty of soap stars, sporting champions and noughties boy band members have done.
The ten contestants include snooker champion Steve Davis, Westlife member Kian Egan, TOWIE star Joey Essex, EastEnders actress Laila Morse, Emmerdale’s Lucy Pargeter, model Amy Willerton, TV host Matthew Wright, Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Adlington, US sitcom actor Alfonso Ribeiro and Royal fashion designer David Emanuel.
Steve Davis looks to be in for the hardest ride in the Australian jungle, after admitting he “despised self-centred people”.
He will have to stay clear of Miss Universe model Amy Willerton, who said she is looking forward to showing off her frame in a bikini – especially if the papers give her as much coverage as Helen Flannagan’s showers last year.
US sitcom star Alfonso Ribeiro seems to have taken the token “random American celebrity” title, but said he looks forward to hanging out with “naturally wonderful” British people.
However, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor has warned there will be no famous Carlton dance until he is voted off.
