ITV has announced the line-up for the new series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!.

The announcement came during Sunday’s 20th anniversary special that saw presenters Ant and Dec suffer the infamous Bush Tucker Trials for the first time.

Due to current lockdown restrictions, the producers have moved the series from the Australian outback to Gwrych Castle in Abergele, North Wales.

A far cry from the usual sweaty base camp, the following celebrities are bracing themselves for a royally cold Welsh winter.

Vernon Kay

Vernon Kay has regularly appeared on ITV since 2004, presenting shows including All Star Family Fortunes, Beat the Star and Splash!. He was also a BBC Radio 1 DJ for eight years until 2012.

Since 2018, he has been the main presenter for live coverage of Formula E.

Beverley Callard

Beverley Callard lived a long and eventful life as Coronation Street’s Liz McDonald, but she recently announced her departure from the soap after 21 years.

She also played Flo Henshaw in Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.

Shane Richie

Shane Richie starred as EastEnders favourite Alfie Moon and has presented a number of BBC game shows.

He brought the laughs to Walford and he’ll bring them to Wales, but can he hack the trials?

Jessica Plummer

Another former soap star, Jessica Plummer, played Chantelle Atkins in EastEnders.

She is also one-fourth of the girl group Neon Jungle, whose album Welcome to the Jungle peaked at number eight on the UK Albums Chart in 2014.

AJ Pritchard

Swapping the ballroom for base camp, AJ Pritchard is best known for his four-year Strictly Come Dancing stint as a professional dancer.

He first appeared on UK screens in Britain’s Got Talent in 2013, making the semi-final with his dancing partner Chloe Hewitt.

Jordan North

Radio 1’s ‘supply teacher’ Jordan North is a regular weekend host on the station and is the main cover presenter for Scott Mills and Nick Grimshaw.

Since 2018, he has also co-presented the agony-aunt podcast Help I Sexted My Boss with etiquette expert William Hanson.

Giovanna Fletcher

Author, presenter and podcaster Giovanna Fletcher currently presents the CBeebies series The Baby Club and the podcast Happy Mum, Happy Babies.

Her writing career supposedly began with an unpublished satirical project entitled Dating McFly is for Dummies, a step by step guide on how to date a McFly guy, as she is married to lead singer Tom Fletcher. She has since written five novels including the Billy and Me series, and the non-fictional Happy Mum, Happy Baby: My Adventures in Motherhood.

We’ll see how she fares without Mr F cooking her eggs in the morning.

Victoria Derbyshire

Multiple RTS Award-winning journalist Victoria Derbyshire has spent years breaking stories and grilling guests for the BBC including her eponymous current affairs programme, the Victoria Derbyshire Show.

This time around she’ll be hoping to make her own headlines.

Sir Mo Farah CBE

Four-time Olympic gold medallist for long distance running, Sir Mo Farah, may have the fitness for the trials, but does he have the fearlessness?

Apparently not, as he admitted in last night’s introduction that he is scared of any and every animal.

Hollie Arnold MBE

Fellow gold medallist Hollie Arnold won the F46 Javelin throw at the 2016 Summer Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Arnold is the youngest field athlete to ever compete in the Paralympics or Olympics, having thrown javelin at the age of 13 in the 2008 Summer Paralympics in Beijing.


I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! 2020 begins on ITV on Sunday 15 November at 9pm.
