I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! shake-up as new two stars enter camp

They're soap icons

Bookies' fave I'm a Celeb 2021

by Nathan Katnoria |

The latest series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! has only been on our screens for a few days and the celebs are still getting used to life in camp at Gwrych Castle in North Wales, but things are about to get a major shake-up just as they're getting comfortable... well, as comfortable as things can get in the basic camp.

Two new famous faces are about to enter camp and you'll definitely recognise them because they're soap icons. That's right, Adam Woodyatt - who has played Ian Beale on EastEnders since the show began - and Coronation Street legend Simon Gregson (aka Steve McDonald) are finally entering camp after weeks of rumours.

Their first scenes will air tonight (Thursday 25 November) as the new arrivals take on the Castle Scare Fair Bushtucker trial.

Before entering camp, Simon revealed it was actually his wife and children that persuaded him to take part in this year's I'm A Celeb after he previously vowed never to appear on the show.

He said, “It was common knowledge I would never do I’m A Celebrity, but my wife and kids were like, ‘Come on Si, you’ve got to do it, you will have fun.’ And so, I’ve said yes! It is something cool for the kids to watch dad scream like a young child!

“I am excited and I know the rest of my cast friends will find it highly amusing I am doing this show! Everyone at work is a huge fan of I’m A Celebrity. They will be wanting to find out what I am up to each evening and what is coming out of my mouth or going in my mouth! They won’t be voting for me to not do a trial. They will definitely want me to go through some pain.”

Meanwhile, Adam said, “I’ve known about doing I’m A Celebrity for a long time and I can’t wait to go in now! I don’t mind if I am first or last in the Castle – I am just really looking forward to being on the show.

“Why have I finally said yes? Because I am not in EastEnders! That is the honest answer. I am not in contract with the BBC so I can come and do it. Everyone thinks I am Ian Beale and so it’s going to be great to show I am not.”

How can I watch up I'm A Celeb?

After kicking off on Sunday 23 November, the latest series of I'm A Celeb continues on ITV every night. It usually airs at 9pm but the start time is subject to change depending on what else is on the telly box that night. Don't worry if you miss the show though, because all episodes are available to catch up on the ITV Hub.

Who is the bookies' favourite to win I'm A Celeb?

The world of showbiz is fickle and the bookies' favourite to win has already shifted a few times. Frankie Bridge was the early fave before the show even began but things changed with just days to go when Emmerdale actor Danny Miller overtook her. But now that we've been getting to know the celebs for almost a week, Frankie is back on top and favourite to win alongside fellow campmate David Ginola.
