I’m A Celebrity 2020 confirmed new campmates Russell Watson and Ruthie Henshall are heading into Gwrych Castle.
Singer Russell and West End star Ruthie expressed their excitement about joining camp in the final minutes of the programme.
What did the new I’m A Celebrity 2020 campmates say?
In teaser clips, Russell said: “They’re going to see a different side to Russell Watson.”
Ruthie added: “There’s a big difference in the known and the unknown and we’re in the unknown.
“It’s really a bit scary. Going in late you’re suddenly feeling much more on show. You’ve got to bring something to the table.”
Russell said: “Don’t think it’s going to be fun at all. I don’t really want to think about the bugs at the moment.”
Ruthie admitted: “I think I’m a tough cookie but I am a bit terrified.”
