Due to begin on Sunday the contestants for this year’s I’m a Celebrity have touched down in the jungle. This year’s lineup features an employee of the Rovers Return, a native of Essex and a fictional hotel manger from Benidrom. The 2010 series, which saw Stacey Solomon crowned Queen of the Jungle was perhaps one of the most enjoyable series for a while so this year’s contestants have a lot to live up to. I’m a celebrity has become a fixture in ITV1’s schedules this time of the year and in my opinion its been a must see since the start.
These are the people we’ll love to hate, root for and ultimately see munching on a Kangaroo’s unmentionables. over the next two weeks.
