So here it is, your OFFICIAL I’m A Celebrity Jungle campmates.

This Made In Chelsea star is well-versed in reality TV drama, but we have a feeling the celebrity Jungle is going to be A LOT different to Kingsroad.

Biggest misconception you want to dispel in the Jungle: I think people reckon I am prim and proper.

Former member of gal band The Saturdays, Vanessa White is also heading for the jungle – will this single star find love?
Date of birth: 30th October 1989

As a YouTuber star and radio presenter, Jack is used to entertaining large audiences – but will he win over I’m A Celebrity viewers?

I’m A Celebrity bosses have been trying to get this footballer Jamie Vardy’s wife on board for a few years, but she finally agreed to sign up! Let’s hope she brings as much fire as we’re expecting…
