The line-up for this year’s series of I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! has been set by producers.

While nobody has been announced yet, new reports from The Sun have appeared to reveal which famous faces will be taking part.

The hit ITV reality show relocated from the Australian jungle to Wales for its most recent series, as a result of the pandemic, and will do so again for the 2021 edition.

The celebrities who do take part will be arriving at the show’s Gwrych Castle campsite ahead of the expected launch date of mid-November.
