I'm A Celeb viewers unimpressed with new campmates

Are they big enough names?

It's all change in the jungle this week! Even though the camp-mates have only been in there for a few days, we've already seen one high profile departure.

Jack Maynard was flown home after leaving the show due to offensive tweets being unearthed, which put ITV in a very awkward position.

Jack's space will be filled by two late arrivals, and their unveiling at the end of tonight's show has underwhelmed viewers, to say the least.

The first is Scottish politician Kezia Dugdale, who says her phobias are creepy-crawlies and birds.

She's come under fire for joining the camp and ditching her constituents, but says she can do more good in the jungle.

Kezia said: "They will be angry because they will say I should be doing my day job and I am going to be away. I understand that anger.

She continued: "I can't help but think that it it is an amazing opportunity to talk to millions of people about the Labour Party, its values and how it is different."

She's joined in the jungle by radio host Iain Lee, who older viewers may remember from the 11 O'Clock Show.

He's now more likely to be found on talkRADIO, and admits he's looking forward to low rations in the camp.

He said: "Another reason for doing it is I have put on quite a lot of weight over the last couple of years.

"Being a parent, you pick food off your kids' plates. This is an opportunity to lose weight."

Iain also readily admits he is "absolutely terrified" of pretty much everything in the jungle.

He said: "This is all my worst nightmares coming hurtling towards me all at once. I am terrified of everything."

Viewers were disappointed with the new additions, however, expecting higher-profile names.

One wrote: "Biggest anti climax for the new celebs! I don't know either of them!?"

Iain and Kezia will go into the jungle on Thursday's show, where they'll do their best to show off a bit more about themselves.
