'I'm A Celebrity' Contestants To Be Joined By Mystery 'Emmerdale' Actress Later In The Series?

The ‘I’m A Celebrity’ line-up was officially confirmed earlier this week, ahead of Sunday night’s launch show, but it seems there’s one more contestant still to be announced.


While paranormal presenter Yvette Fielding, businessman Duncan Bannatyne and ‘Hollyoaks’ actress Jorgie Porter are all now bracing themselves to make their jungle debut this weekend, it has been reported that a brand new campmate will be joining them later in the run.

Although various reports have claimed that reality stars Ferne McCann, Spencer Matthews and Vicky Pattinson are tipped to make an appearance, The Mirror have now said that the late addition will actually be a mystery soap actress, famous for her role in ‘Emmerdale’.

Although it’s not yet known who the soap actress is, the newspaper have claimed that she is “blonde”, prompting speculation it could be either Sammy Winward or Gemma Oaten, both of whom recently left the soap, with Gemma debuting a new blonde hairstyle earlier this week.

Union J singer George Shelley is the bookies’ current favourite to be crowned King of the Jungle, with Spandau Ballet frontman Tony Hadley not far behind him.

The 15th series of ‘I’m A Celebrity’ kicks off this Sunday, 15 November, at 9pm on ITV.
