ITV has revealed the official line-up for this year’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Despite rumours that Tom Daley, Roy Keane and Nicola Adams would be entering the jungle, few big household names have made the cut.

Instead, the likes of US reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson and ex-professional motorbike racer Carl Fogarty will be entering the jungle.

They will be joined by TOWIE’s Gemma Collins, Coronation Street actor Craig Charles, ‘Allo ‘Allo actress Vicki Michelle, singer Tinchy Stryder, Model Nadia Forde, BBC newsreader Michael Buerk, TV presenter Melanie Sykes and US reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson.

Ant and Dec will return to host the show, which begins its 14th series this weekend.

The news of the announcement follows comments from Springwatch presenter Chris Packham, who has criticised the show for its “repugnant” treatment of wild animals.

The naturalist said the show’s use of animals such as snakes, spiders, crocodiles and rats undermined a respect for life and sometimes bordered the “barbaric”.

I’m A Celebrity begins on Sunday 16 November at 9pm on ITV.
