New crop of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here contestants revealed
THE NEW BATCH of celebrities set to subject themselves to ridicule in the Australian outback for our viewing pleasure has been revealed ? and it's looking decidedly Z-list.
The group of stars set to appear in ITV's I'm A Celebrity?ranges from Changing Rooms designer Anna Ryder Richardson and former Hollyoaks actress Gemma Atkinson to EastEnders actor Marc Bannerman (he played long-forgotten Gianni di Marco).
Katie Hopkins of The Apprentice and romping-in-a-field fame is also set to appear. But, don't worry, there is at least one character who's likely to liven up the outback banter - loudmouth model Janice Dickinson, dubbed the world's first supermodel and reported to have slept with over 1000 men including Warren Beatty, is lined up to take part.
Other names likely to make up the list of 14, including standbys, are Jason Brown from the now-defunct boy band Five, Prince Andrew's former girlfriend Koo Stark, pantomime actor Christopher Biggins, chef John Burton Race and Richard and Fred Fairbrass of the group Right Said Fred.
Seventies footballer turned TV pundit Rodney Marsh, PR guru Lynne Frank and Cerys Matthews, singer with the Nineties pop group Catatonia, are also in the frame to appear.
The new series of I'm A Celebrity starts on Monday night.
