Who is going on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! this year?
Popular Radio X presenter Chris Moyles has touched down in Brisbane to join the cast of the upcoming I’m a Celeb series. Moyles told the Mirror: “I have absolutely no idea what my family and friends would think of me doing a show like I’m a Celebrity. I have never asked them. But I think they would be much more nervous about me doing the Antiques Roadshow.”
When asked about how he intends to survive amongst the spiders and snakes, the former Radio 1 DJ replied: “There’s lots of everything in this country, like sport and beer and I am not scared of sport or beer. So I think I will be alright.”
I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! executives have reportedly tried to sign Moyles for years but he felt this year was the right time. Speaking about the show last year with Vernon Kay, Moyles said: “I just wouldn’t be good on I’m a Celeb because we had Tiff’s niece last week and we took her to Go Ape, you know the treetop adventure place?
“I papped myself and I realised I’m more scared of heights than I actually genuinely thought I was, and I knew I was scared of heights.”
Love Island star Olivia Attwood arrived at Brisbane airport recently as well, being the third confirmed star. Attwood told the Sun: “I am scared of me, in terms of how long the other campmates can tolerate me. I will get myself in trouble somehow, the usual.”
Other rumoured stars to be joining them include Sean Walsh, Boy George, Tom Daley and former rugby player Mike Tindall.
