After Roman Kemp did so well in last year’s series, Radio 1 DJ Jordan will surely be looking to repeat the DJ success by joining the I’m A Celebrity 2020 line up.

Jordan, who said he “loves his food” is already coming up with a survival strategy.

“I just think it is easier to go in cold turkey! If I start worrying, I am going to start overthinking it and so I have been eating loads beforehand – a bit like an animal does before it hibernates!”

Reports claim that I’m A Celeb insiders have “always wanted” Shane to appear on the series.

But all Shane wants is for his kids to be proud of him

“To make the kids proud would be so nice,” Shane said.

“They were too young for the height of Alfie Moon and they have only seen Daddy dressed as a drag queen!”

Beverley Callard

Corrie legend Bev, 63, has played barmaid Liz McDonald in the soap for more than 30 years.

She’ll be hoping for another strong performance from a Corrie actor – last year her co-star Andy Whyment made it to the I’m A Celebrity final.

She said: “I think as I have played Liz for so long, people think I am quite glamorous and they think I am covered in make-up all the time.

“Well to be totally honest, I am just the opposite! I hate being dressed up and I don’t care if my nails break either! I am quite at home in comfy baggy clothes.”

Viewers were on the edge of their seats when Jessica’s character Chantelle Atkins was involved in an emotional and harrowing domestic abuse storyline earlier this year.

And Jessica, 28, wants to show people a different side to her.

“Doing I’m A Celebrity will give people a chance to see more of who I am and they will be able to see the differences between me and the character I am known for playing,” she said.

She also admitted to being a scaredy-cat: “My family are all like: ‘Jess seriously, you are such a scaredy-cat and you are so precious about your luxuries, what are you signing up for?!”

He said: “Being trapped in a confined space will get to me for sure. And heights are not my friend too much either!

“But I am looking forward to a digital detox. It will definitely be a positive when you consider how much you work from your phone. My phone is attached to my hip 24/7!”

He’s also married to Strictly host Tess Daly.

The 46 year old is reported to have signed a huge deal to appear on the show.

But he admitted that he agreed to do the show because of his daughters, Phoebe and Amber.

“It’s a show they watch on a regular basis and they get behind the people in the camp. I think the fact I am involved in it will make it even more fun for them!

“And now it is approaching, they are so excited. Every time I talk about it, I get a double fist pump from them and they are thrilled to be involved.”
