The wait is finally over: the identity of the celebrities who have surrendered life’s luxuries for a unique experience in the depths of the South African jungle has been revealed.
The nine celebrities competing for the coveted title of King or Queen Of The Jungle under the watchful eyes of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! hosts Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown are:
Bernard Tomic: World famous tennis player.
Fiona O’Loughlin: Queen of comedy.
Jackie Gillies: Television personality and psychic medium.
Josh Gibson: AFL champion.
Kerry Armstrong: Leading Australian actor.
Peter Rowsthorn: Iconic comedian and actor.
Shannon Noll: Australian rocker.
Simone Holtznagel: Model and reality television star
Tiffany: American singer and songwriter.
Divided into three groups of three, the celebrities said one final goodbye to their privileged lives before being plunged literally head-first into one of the world’s wildest terrains.
Three brave celebrities faced their fears and jumped from a great height into fast-rushing, shark-infested waters beneath, while the next three faced a gorge swing of terrifying proportions. The final three celebrities mustered up the courage to skydive over the home of the most dangerous animals in Africa, before landing in the wild and meeting up with their fellow campmates.
With their first epic challenge complete, these nine celebrities have a taste of what is in store as they prepare to make the African jungle their home.
With the celebrities settling into their new home, it quickly became apparent that many of them had daringly defied camp rules by smuggling in an array of contraband.
While Pete unstrapped a frisbee from his back ready for some camp games, Fiona’s lighter was sneakily used to get their first camp fire up and running.
They might be smug about their secret rule-breaking antics, but the celebrities do not realise that a camp leader is coming. What punishment will the celebrities face when superstar boxer Anthony Mundine crashes into camp tomorrow night? Feathers will be ruffled when the controversial multi-sports athlete arrives. Mundine Munday is not to be missed.
