Also in the starting line-up are TV presenter Kate Garraway, comedian Andrew Maxwell and former England rugby player James Haskell.

Gutted Kirk from Corrie isn't on there.

But Coronation Street fans were left disappointed that the Kirk actor was not in the starting line-up after being rumoured to be appearing on the show.

Today (November 12 2019) Andy posted a picture to Instagram of him and his wife Nichola looking at Christmas decorations.

Fans were quick to comment on the fact Andy was obviously not on his way to Australia.

One wrote: "Whattt? I thought you were dead cert on going into the jungle pal."

A second commented: "We all want you in the jungle. Winner."

A third said: "On no, thought you were in Australia."

Fans on Twitter also shared their disappointment.

In the past celebrities have joined the show later in the series, so it is possible Andy could be a late starter, but this has not been confirmed.

Plenty of Andy's co-stars have been on the survival show.

Last year Sair Khan, who plays Alya Nazir, came ninth on the show.
