I'm A Celebrity 2013: Strictly's Vincent Simone and model Annabel Giles join the jungle
Camp life for the celebrities will be shaken up by two new arrivals tonight
Two new celebrities are to join this year's contestants in the I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! jungle.
Contestant Joey Essex's former fiancé , Sam Faiers, was widely tipped to fly in, but former model Annabel Giles and Strictly Come Dancing ex-professional Vincent Simone will be the new faces on tonight's show instead.
Annabel, 54, holds the dubious belief that life in the campsite will be "better than going to a health spa". "I couldn’t bear lounging around in towelling dressing gowns. This will be exciting for me," she said.
When asked her phobias by ITV, Annabel simply named "camping" (right...), while her fellow newbie Vincent is "scared of everything".
Best known as one half of popular Strictly duo Vincent and Flavia, the 34-year old is "looking forward to to pushing [himself] and trying", while teaching the camp some dance moves to "inject some passion".
Yesterday, viewers watched campsites Snake Rock and Croc Creek merge together after Joey won his second bushtucker trial against chat show host Matthew Wright.
The pair suffered ten minutes in hour glasses full of creepy crawlies, before Joey was crowned winner in the decider. Matthew and Joey had to count down from 60 seconds and press a button when they thought that time was up.
Despite professing not to be able to tell the time, The Only Way Is Essex star was victorious with one second separating him from Matthew. "I told you I'm good at counting. I used to count all the time!" he said, seriously.
Immediately removing his top on completion of the challenge to an unsurprised Ant and Dec, Joey's glory was short-lived, as he was nominated for his fourth trial tonight, the ominously named 'Submerged'.
Joey Essex will face the 'Submerged' challenge on tonight's show "What does 'submerge' mean?," he asked. You'll find out soon Joey, don't you worry your perfectly-groomed head.
Joey will be asked to climb through a hatch into a submarine, with jungle critters at the helm. He will search for stars in the ship, each one representing a single meal for camp, as it is slowly submerged in water.
Let's hope Joey can swim better than he can tell the time...
