Hot soap star with buff bod is headed Down Under

With just over a week to go before the start of the new series of I’m A Celebrity we are beginning to get a clearer picture of who might be gobbling bugs in the jungle as the stars begin to fly into Australia.

So far to arrive have been Jordan Banjo from Diversity, Olympian Sam Quek and funnyman Joel Dommet, who flew into Brisbane airport over the weekend.

They were joined by the gorgeous Lisa Snowdon, who is no stranger to reality shows, having come third on the sixth series of Strictly Come Dancing.

One-liner spitting Scarlett Moffatt from Gogglebox was spotted at Heathrow on Sunday afternoon on her way out to Australia to join fellow Geordie presenters Ant and Dec.

Now another big name – who we are very excited about – has been thrown into the mix, which is set to also include Ola Jordan, Carol Vorderman, Homes Under The Hammer host Martin Roberts, EastEnders veteran Larry Lamb, Frankie Bridge’s hubby Wayne and TV personality Danny Baker,

Step forward Emmerdale hunk Adam Thomas.

The gorgeous actor, who plays Adam Barton in the soap and is brother to Love Island’s Scott and former Corrie star Ryan, is said to have signed up to the show earlier in the year.

And we can’t wait to see him getting a sweat on in the jungle as he spent most of this summer buffing up.

The handsome actor – who’s getting married to fiancee Caroline Daly next summer –  teamed up with Ultimate Performance fitness group to tone up his gorgeous body and produced these amazing results in just 12 weeks:

At the time of his body reveal, Adam said: “It’s been along 12 weeks but one I will never forget it’s taught me a lot in the gym but also a lot out of the gym it’s been a way of life for me a for that I am truly grateful ….”

As are we, Adam, as are we. Now get yourself in that creepy crawly-ridden jungle and get showering!
