Former Campmates of I’m A Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here! Check out which of our speakers have starred in the jungle!

With ITV’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returning to our screens, the nation’s eyes are fixed firmly on the latest contestants to enter the jungle. From sporting stars to TV icons, politicians and musicians, the reality show has hosted them all. For the first year since 2019, the show is back to being located in Australia.

We are very excited that one of our speakers has entered the jungle this year. Rugby World Cup winner Mike Tindall is the latest sports star to take on the jungle and so far ‘Vanilla Mike’ has been entertaining bandmates with his rapping skills and looks to be a popular figure in the camp, we wish Mike all the best during his time in the jungle. 

With the Jungle back on our screens we decided to take a look at some of our other speakers who’ve appeared on the show, looking back at their best moments in the jungle, as well as delving into what they’re up to now…

Mo Farah

Sir-Mo Farah

One of the greatest Olympians in British history, Mo Farah took part in the 2020 series of the show. Due to Covid-19, this was held in a different venue – Gwrych Castle, North Wales, where it continued for the following series. Aside from his appearance on The Cube in 2012, this was Mo’s first step into the world of reality TV. A big fan of the show, Mo had watched every series for nine years prior to his appearance, and since one of his favourite sporting stars, Linford Christie won in 2010. Waiting for the right time in his career, Mo was delighted to feature. His excellent level of fitness and mental focus achieved him fifth place in the series, and a substantial reality media career following thereafter.

Former England international, James Haskell, took part in the show in 2019 – the last show in Australia before the pandemic. A larger-than-life character, James brought humour and personality to the show, whilst also showing his determination in a variety of tasks. With his Rugby-strength and stature, it came as no surprise that James Haskell struggled with the lack of food faced throughout the show. Having a famously ‘hangry’ episode, this led James to have disagreements with fellow campmates, increasing entertainment for viewers. Since his appearance on the show, James has launched himself into media life. He has written books, has a large social media presence, and alongside former Rugby-star and current contestant, Mike Tindall, and Sky Sports presenter, Alex Payne, has launched a popular podcast – The Good The Bad & The Rugby.

Edwina showed her determination for her campmates and achieved 18/24 stars through the trails she took part in.
