Who oh WHO will it be?
Ladies and gentlemen – today is a very important day.
Why? Because the very first I’m a Celebrity contestant is due to land Down Under this afternoon.
And we are dying to know who it is. Literally. Well, not literally. But we’re really excited.
Our very own Mark Jefferies is on Aussie ground with his beady eyes peeled, and will be informing us of exactly WHO has arrived the moment they step foot off the plane.
Look how excited Ant and Dec are…
A whole host of celebs have been rumoured to take part in this year’s show – but who will actually show up?
So stay with us as we bring you live updates and reaction as the first sleb prepares for their jungle adventure.
Get ready for creepy crawlies, fish eyes, turkey testicles and maybe Josie Cunningham.
Who is confirmed for the line up?
TV’s Melanie Sykes and TOWIE’s Gemma Collins are now confirmed to go into the jungle on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here – but bosses are making last minute changes to the line up.
A source on the show said that whilst there were some alterations being made to the contestants, these two feisty females have now arranged their flights and could be out in Australia as soon as Sunday, a whole week before the show kicks off on TV.
The insider added: "Mel and Gemma are two great names who will be very familiar to ITV viewers.
"Both of them are not slow in coming forward in conversations and have been photographed in bikinis before, so they tick lots of boxes for the jungle.
Gemma and Mel are going in
Who is rumoured to be going into the jungle?
You wait twelve months for a few I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here rumours and a gazillion come at once. Isn’t it always the way?
Roy Keane and Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison are the latest names to be thrown into the mix.
The former Manchester United footballer has hinted that he could be tempted to sign up for the show, while the reality star is hoping to head to the jungle to show the public what she’s made of after quitting Geordie Shore.
The Wanted’s Max George has also been heavily rumoured for a stint in the jungle. Perhaps he can follow in the footsteps of fellow boy band member Kian Egan in being crowned King of the Jungle?
Hollyoaks actress Gemma Merna is also being heavily rumoured for the show. The star – who recently announced her decision to quit her role as Carmel McQueen after eight years – has dipped her toe into the pool of reality TV before and she’d be up for joining the jungle.

Even Josie’s been rumoured to be going in
Bosses have been choosing from dozens of celebs
We may not know exactly who is going in, but we hear bosses have been choosing from dozens of celebs.
Casting Executive David Harvey said: “Every year there’s a long casting process where we’ll meet anywhere between 60 and 90 potential celebrities."
Once they arrive in Australia, all the celebs are kept apart until the show begins filming, this means they all tend to stay in different hotels dotted around the coast.
The Bushtucker Trials
In terms of what the celebs will face once they get in the jungle, this is what the 2013 lot had to get through during their Bushtucker trials:
6 one-metre long crocodiles
20 small crocodiles
Three pairs of pants
The only items the celebs take to camp are three sets of underwear and three sets of swimwear, ITV provide everything else.
One luxury item is allowed, with the most popular choice being a pillow, chair or photograph of a loved one.
