Jack Maynard first star 'confirmed' for I'm A Celebrity as he's spotted at Brisbane Airport

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! bosses like to keep identities of their contestants close to their chests until the launch episode.

But Jack Maynard appears to be the first star who could well be heading into the jungle this year after he was spotted touching down at Brisbane Airport earlier today.

The YouTube sensation and brother of singer Conor Maynard is expected to head off to a hotel where he will spend some quality time before experiencing the delights the Australian bush has to offer alongside a slew of other stars.

This year’s I’m A Celeb gets underway on November 19, so Jack – who boasts an incredible 1.1 million subscribers on the video-sharing site – won’t have too long to wait.

It remains to be seen whether a number of the other rumoured campmates, such as Made in Chelsea’s Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo, TOWIE star Gemma Collins and former Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas, will rock up Down Under in the next nine days.

One star who will feature on the series is co-host Ant McPartlin.

The Britain’s Got Talent co-presenter was admitted to rehab over the summer for an addiction to prescription pills, but he will be back alongside sidekick Declan Donnelly when the series returns.

But there has been a line-up change on I’m a Celeb spin-off Extra Camp.

Last year’s winner Scarlett Moffatt and runner-up Joel Dommett will be co-hosting alongside returning panellist Joe Swash.

Scarlett, 27, said: “After last year’s jungle experience, which was a dream come true, I can’t believe I’m so lucky to have the dream continue by being part of this amazing show and joining the ITV2 Extra Camp team, it’s going to be so much fun.”
