But there’s no Ed Balls as had been rumoured

Ten stars have finally been confirmed for this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here – but former Nottinghamshire MP-turned-Strictly star Ed Balls isn’t among them.

Instead pop singers, stars of the small screen, athletes, WAGs, vloggers and more will all be entering the Australian jungle for this weekend’s series launch.

The first episode of the new series will be on ITV on Sunday, November 19, so we can put our feet up, grab a takeaway and enjoy the following famous faces screaming in terror as they get chucked out of helicopters and forced to carry out multiple challenges to get to their camp…

The contestants confirmed, according to Mirror Online, are:

The 44-year-old comedian and author Shappi Khorsandi is one of the best – having scooped the 2007 Chortle Award and performing stand-up across the globe.

Jetting into Brisbane airport on Monday, the Iranian-born British star looked relaxed and excited.

Political representation, rather than Ed Balls, comes from 77-year-old former Conservative MEP and father of Boris Johnson Stanley Johnson, who touched down in Brisbane Airport on Monday morning as the eighth celebrity confirmation.

He revealed he’s “excited” to be taking part and I’m A Celeb bosses are said to be hopeful Stanley will provoke lots of debate around the campfire.

The Olympic champion and world-famous boxer has had a torrid year, having faced down a feud with his family (now mended), a split from his pregnant wife Faryal Makhdoom (also now mended) and a public Twitter meltdown aimed at Anthony Joshua.

He’s signed up to I’m A Celeb to “stay out of trouble” and vowed to stay in shape during his time Down Under by going on “gentle jogs”.

The newly exited Hollyoaks actor is best known for playing villain Warren Fox.

The father-of-three said, “I’m really excited to be here,” and smiled at photographers before jumping into a waiting car at Brisbane airport.

Coronation Street’s Fiz confirmed she is taking a little break from the soap when she touched down in Australia over the weekend.

Asked about going into the jungle, she joked: “I am going to the Neighbours set, that is my first port of call!”

And she was quick to confirm she would return to Corrie in the New Year, saying: “Yeah, this is just a little holiday.

“What is happening to Fiz whilst I am away? That is a good question.”

The Saturdays singer confirmed she was part of the line-up over the weekend, but wasn’t actually looking forward to the gross side of the jungle.

Vanessa, 28, admitted she is terrified of the jungle bugs, snakes and spiders she will encounter.

She said: “I am really excited to be here, it is my first time in Australia, I can’t wait to take part.

“I am scared of everything though, so I am also a bit nervous. It’s a bit of a mixture of nerves and excitement.”

The Made In Chelsea babe is best known for her friendship with Sam Thompson in the E4 drama series.

Georgia, 22, nicknamed “Toff” by her West London pals, seems certain to be one of the bikini babes under the jungle shower this year.

Asked if she had brought lots of bikinis, Georgia nodded and pointed at her three bags of luggage saying “I’ve packed a lot.”

But she added: “Have I been working out? Not enough!”

Former Chelsea captain Dennis was snapped arriving at Brisbane Airport as he wheeled his suitcase along.

The 50-year-old former Premier ace appeared very chipper as he grinned at paps while he made his way to a cab.

He was dressed very comfortably in a pair of tracksuit bottoms and a hoodie, with a Louis Vuitton satchel slung over a shoulder.

The YouTubing sensation racks up hundreds of thousands of views with each of the videos he posts, and is the brother of singer Conor Maynard.

The 22-year-old lad will have his birthday on November 23 – four days into his jungle stint – and his 1.1million YouTube subscribers will be following his every move.

The 35-year old wife of England and Leicester City footballer Jamie Vardy has reportedly been panicking over going so long without seeing her four children – 10-month-old son Finlay and daughter Sofia, three, plus Megan, 11, and Taylor, six.

In fact, it was reported she almost pulled out of the line-up over her fears of missing them, but has now apparently arranged for her kids to be flown out too so she can see them the minute she leaves the show.
