Show us ya Brits!



ANOTHER group of B-grade British "celebrities" are set to descend on Murwillumbah with Princess Di's disgraced butler Paul Burrell topping the list.

Burrell, who wrote a tell-all book about his time with Princess Di, will be joined by a couple of racy models, a pop star and Kylie Minogue's ex-boyfriend in the reality TV series I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here, which is filmed at Dungay in the Tweed Valley.

And in a twist, the Daily News understands seven Tweed people have been plucked from obscurity to star alongside the Brits.

Producers of the series are so worried about any information being leaked, they have gagged the seven and threatened to kick them out if they speak to reporters.

The show goes to air in Britain on Sunday night and runs for four weeks, with viewers voting off contestants each week. The last one standing picks up a million pounds.

When the last UK series screened earlier this year, former Aussie pop star Peter Andre revived his flagging career by getting steamy with Page 3 model Jordan, which kept the British tabloids amused for months.

This time the beauty will be model Sophie Anderton, the ex-wife of disgraced Aussie soccer star Mark Bosnich.

Anderton and Bosnich had a bitter public bust-up, with both claiming they were beaten by the other. Bosnich was on a multi-million dollar contract at London club Chelsea before he was sacked for testing positive to using cocaine.

Anderton told London Sun newspaper this week she was more worried about love rats like Burrell than any of the snakes she is likely to encounter.

"I am not really afraid of any creepy crawlies," she said.

"But I am more worried about how I will get on with rats like (Kylie's ex) James Gooding or Paul Burrell." Other celebrities rumoured for the series include East 17 bad boy Brian Harvey, comedian Joe Pasquale, singer Sheila Ferguson, journalist Janet Street Porter, Suggs from Madness, and Page Three legend Jilly Johnson.
