Following weeks of speculation about his appearance on the show, the latest episode teased Edmonds’ grand entrance into the jungle.
Whilst the celebrities have had to get used to their basic living arrangements and participate in a series of gruesome Bushtucker trials, the iconic TV presenter will be exempt as a result of his royal role.
Detailing how Edmonds will have the power over his fellow campers, Extra Camp presenter Joel Dommett went on to tell viewers at home how he will be able to choose four celebrities to enter his colosseum.
From there, they will be tasked with trials before two of them become part of his inner circle.
“The Emperor will be immune from all work including all trials and duties around camp.
“His first task will be to employ an advisor who will also be immune from trials,” Dommett added.
“The other two people chosen as his inner circle will also have the same privileges as The Emperor. All hail The Emperor!”
Viewers tuning into the show couldn’t hide their excitement as they shared their views on Twitter.
Despite his VIP style entrance into the Australian outback, Edmonds revealed that he has prepared for life in the jungle by eating worms from his garden.
“There are now no worms in our garden. What do worms taste like? Worms, exactly what you’d expect,” he told the Daily Mirror.
He also agreed to retire from public life if he was to be crowned King of the jungle.
“I am going to win because I promise the British public if they vote for me, I will retire from television and I will never appear again,” Mr Blobby’s pal commented.
“There’s a deal that I am striking with the great British public who have supported me over the years – they make me ‘King of the Jungle’ and I will retire and never appear again!”.
