'I'm A Celebrity' 2015: Yvette Fielding Swaps 'Most Haunted' For The Jungle

Yvette Fielding has become the latest famous face to be linked with a spot on the new series of ‘I’m A Celebrity’.

The paranormal presenter has reportedly landed a spot on this year’s line-up, according to The Mirror though she’ll immediately be at a disadvantage in the jungle, due to a debilitating medical condition.

Yvette suffers from vitiligo, which greatly increases her risk of third-degree burns and makes her eyes more sensitive - which isn’t exactly ideal for long days out in the open, under the Australian sun.

“If her skin condition turns bad she will be forced to leave early and get medical attention.”

“Nowadays, I try to stay out of sunlight if I can, so hanging around in dark rooms for Most Haunted is brilliant for me!”

Among the other stars said to be taking part in the series include TV actress Leslie Ash, Union J singer George Shelley and ‘Made In Chelsea’ lothario Spencer Matthews.

With just over a week to go until the series launch, producers are already facing a headache, with an airport strike Down Under coinciding with the time the celebrities usually arrive in Australia.

Ant and Dec will front this year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity’ launch, on 15 November.
