This year’s bunch of ‘I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!’ campmates have finally been revealed.

The official line-up includes some very well known faces including Carol Vorderman, Ola Jordan and Larry Lamb with a smattering of, how can we put this, lesser known stars.

Leaving their plush pads and luxuries far behind, the ten celebrity campers will spend up to three weeks taking on the harsh surroundings of the Australian jungle, with a whole host of brand new nasty surprises created just for them.

As always, hosts Ant and Dec are back to present all the big stories live from the jungle every night.

So as we gear up for this year’s launch show, get to know who will be rubbing shoulders - and each other up - when they enter the jungle this weekend.
