I'm A Celeb 2021: Cast Revealed But Everyone Has The Same Question

Finally! It’s that time of the year where we can spend every evening at home, totally guilt-free, as I’m a Celebrity is back.

But instead of saying G’day to the Australian jungle, we’re being welcomed back to Wales as our celebs are once again heading to Gwrych Castle for a second year in a row.

And it looks as if we may be welcoming our most exciting line-up of campmates yet, with the line-up including: two Olympic athletes, a football icon and a popstar.

Here’s who we can expect to see braving the elements to be in with a chance to be the next King, or Queen, of the castle.

An insider told The Sun: “There's a long tradition of reality TV shows targeting news presenters and I'm A Celebrity is no different.

"Victoria Derbyshire was on the show before and proved very popular with viewers.

"ITV are hoping they can do the same with Louise and have approached her about coming on board."

The sport star, who has competed at the Olympics as an able-bodied athlete as well as the Paralympics, is no stranger to reality TV.

The Leeds born cyclist and track and field athlete boasts appearances on Celebrity Masterchef (which she won), as well as The Jump, The Great British Bake Off and Celebrity Gogglebox. 

David Ginola

Football legend David Ginola, best known for his tenure at legendary clubs including Paris Saint-Germain, Newcastle, Tottenham and Aston Villa, will be swapping kickabouts for kangaroo testicles this series. He’s one of many previous Premiere League stars who have tried their luck on the series, including Ian Wright and Harry Redknapp.

The former Strictly judge is making I’m a Celeb history by taking part in the show. At 78, she will be the oldest campmate ever to face the jungle/castle – the title previously held by winner Harry Redknapp in 2018.

Former The Saturdays star Frankie has turned her attentions more on TV work in more recent years. While her husband, Chelsea footballer Wayne Bridge, finished fifth in 2016, Frankie will be seeing if she can surpass her husband’s efforts.

Richard Madeley

Alan Partridge IRL, Richard Madeley is guaranteed to be telly gold in the I’m a Celeb castle.

The 65-year-old telly legend has previously supported son-in-law James Haskell who headed into the I’m a Celeb jungle, and even participated in his own ‘mini-trial’ for Extra Camp­ – where he actually did rather well…a dark horse in the making?

Matty Lee

The Olympic diver shot to fame in Japan earlier this year, when he won a Gold medal for his synchronised dive with Tom Daley.

The 23-year-old is now set to dive head-first into the Bushtucker Trials – but whether he’ll be a gold medal campmate is yet to be seen.

Naughty Boy

The music producer has worked with huge names in the biz, including Beyonce and Sam Smith, so we can’t wait to find out of what he makes of the likes of Ian Beale.

Real name Shahid Khan, Naughty Boy was meant to enter I’m a Celeb last year but was forced to drop out last minute, being replaced by runner-up Jordan North.

Fans Are Asking The Same Question...

ITV viewers are each asking the same question on Twitter. Where is Adam Woodyatt, A.K.A. EastEnders legend Ian Beale?

While some have speculated he may be joining the line-up later on in the series, others are simply disappointed they won't be seeing him arrive with the other campmates.

"WHERE IS IAN BEALE [sic]" Radio One DJ Greg James demanded to know.

"Where's Ian Beale and Steve from Corrie?" said a second.

"Where's Simon Gregson and Adam Woodyatt??? [sic]" questioned a third.
