'​Minty' and 'Kirk' Are Confirmed For 'I'm A Celebrity' Jungle

'​Minty' and 'Kirk' Are Confirmed For 'I'm A Celebrity' Jungle

Finally, we've had confirmation the long-loved characters Minty from Eastenders and Kirk from Coronation Street are heading into the I'm A Celebrity jungle.

Pictures of Cliff Parisi, 59, who played Minty and Andrew Whyment, 38, who plays Kirk, waiting to enter the jungle have just been released.

The pictures show them posing with and cuddling up to different animals in the outback, including a kangaroo, koala bear and an emu. They're clearly getting into the spirit of being down under.

The pair are no doubt mentally preparing to take on gruesome Bushtucker trials and tricky Dingo Dollar challenges - though we don't think these cute cuddly creatures will help them much.

Let's just hope they don't get given a challenge to remove Adele's picture of Jane McDonald, that seems like it might be the toughest one of all.

As ever with I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, ten celebs enter the jungle on day one, followed by a couple of late entrances to shake things up and change dynamics in the week following.

The Real Reason Ant And Dec Cover Their Watches On 'I'm A Celebrity'

And if you don't know who Kirk and Minty are, you obviously aren't soap fans. Andrew plays Kirk Sutherland, the harmless, if a bit dim character in Coronation Street and has done so for 19 years. But, he also played Darren Sinclair-Jones in The Royle Family.

'I'm A Celebrity' Viewers Are distracted By Ian Wright's Giant Bulge

published ata year ago

Cliff is known for playing lovable mechanic Rick 'Minty' Peterson in Eastenders from 2002 - 2010 but has most recently starred in Call The Midwife as handyman Fred Buckle.

Andrew has been heavily rumoured to be an 'I'm A Celebrity' contestant for weeks and it was a shock when he didn't end up in the original line up, with fans confused when they saw him shopping in Warrington just days before the show began. So it is not surprising he is a late entry.

Cliff however has only been tipped to enter the jungle this week, which he has since confirmed himself.

The duo will be joining this year's current cast: Caitlyn Jenner, 70; Ian Wright, 56; Jacqueline Jossa, 27; Nadine Coyle, 34; Adele Roberts, 40; Kate Garraway, 52, Roman Kemp, 26; Andrew Maxwell, 44; Myles Stephenson, 28 and James Haskell, 34.

There are some strong personalities in there this year, so we wonder if these two will be more easy-going additions to keep the peace, or if in real life they're fiery characters. We guess we'll find out.
