I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2020 will officially kick off in just over a week’s time at 9pm on Sunday 15th November. Before then though, Ant and Dec will be returning to our screens this Sunday (8th November) to officially reveal the line up of stars we can expect to see on the show this year.
Twelve celebrities in the castle
Whilst we’ve previously reported the names of the celebs who are almost certainly going to form the line up for I’m A Celeb 2020, we won’t know for sure until Sunday. However, it’s being reported that twelve celebs have signed up for this year’s series–including Mo Farah, Vernon Kay and Beverley Callard.
EastEnders stars Jessica Plummer and Shane Richie are also still expected to appear, as are Paralympian Hollie Arnold, presenter Victoria Derbyshire, actress Ruthie Henshall and opera singer Russell Watson. Former Strictly star AJ Pritchard will swap the ballroom for the castle and we shared yesterday that Giovanna Fletcher is likely to be heading into the jungle as a late arrival.
Who is the new name?
Finally, the new name revealed today by The Sun was 30-year-old DJ Jordan North. Jordan recently got his own weekend show on Radio 1 after years of regularly covering for top DJs Matt Edmonson, Scott Mills and Nick Grimshaw–which has earned him the nickname ‘the supply teacher.’
Meanwhile, Boyzone fans will be disappointed to learn that it sounds like Keith Duffy really isn’t going to be part of the line up for I’m A Celeb 2020 after all. He was previously included in lists of ‘confirmed’ stars but has himself said he ‘never was going in’ and will be watching ‘from the comfort of [his] own sofa.’
