Watch: Who are the stars heading to Wales for I’m A Celebrity?
I’m A Celebrity’s 10 contestants for the show’s 20th series have been revealed – including Olympic legend Sir Mo Farah, broadcaster Vernon Kay and Corrie star Beverley Callard.
ITV has already confirmed that one of the line-up has tested positive for COVID-19, although it isn’t clear whether that will delay them in joining the contest.

In another break from tradition, the contestants were revealed a week before the show’s launch, in a lookback episode, I’m a Celebrity – A Jungle Story.
The big reveal confirmed the rumour that former Strictly Come Dancing pro AJ Pritchard was in the line-up, as well as author and broadcaster Giovanna Fletcher.
Also joining the castle camp in Wales next week will be stage and screen star Shane Richie and journalist and broadcaster Victoria Derbyshire.

They will be joined by Paralympic athlete Hollie Arnold, soap actor Jessica Plummer and Radio 1 DJ Jordan North.
Fletcher, who is married to McFly star Tom Fletcher, is currently the favourite to win, although the series often introduces two new campmates a few days in so it’s possible we haven’t yet seen the full line-up.

I’m a Celebrity – A Jungle Story also showed Ant and Dec taking part in the bushtucker trials they usually present, including a disgusting eating trial that served up fish eyes and pig penis.
The episode featured some of the most memorable stars from the previous 19 series, including Katie Price and Peter Andre’s romance, Gillian McKeith’s dodgy faint and Fatima Whitbread revealing that she’d kept the cockroach that got stuck up her nose and encased it in a paperweight.
I’m A Celebrity begins on Sunday at 9pm on ITV.
