UK reality show comes to Tweed
BIG Brother's “nastiest” contestant and Amy Winehouse's father are among the British stars rumoured to be headed to the “wild jungles of Murwillumbah”.
Filming for the tenth season of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me out of Here! will start at Dungay on November 8.
The popular UK reality show forces contestants to ditch their lifestyles of the rich and famous for time in the bush, with competitions such as the bush tucker trials, which can include munching on crocodile eyeballs.
Comedy duo Ant and Dec are to return as presenters for the main show, and its spin-off show Get Me out of Here... Now will not be returning.
Very little is yet known about the series, but ITV 1 has cut the budget massively and can only afford “low-priced celebrities”.
Rumoured to be featuring in this year's series are John and Edward Grimes, the Chuckle Brothers, “Nasty Nick” Bateman, Yvette Fielding, Toni Terry, Mitchell Winehouse and Simon Jordan.
Irish singing duo John and Edward Grimes, who perform under the name Jedward, are known for their distinctive blonde quiffs and playful performances. The identical twins, who turn 19 next month, have risen to fame since appearing as John and Edward on the sixth series of The X Factor in 2009.
The father of pop singer Amy Winehouse, Mitchell, is often seen by his daughter's side through her battle with drug addiction.
Barry and Paul Elliot, better known as the Chuckle Brothers, are British comedians with their own BBC show ChuckleVision.
“Nasty Nick” Bateman was a contestant on the first series of the British version of Big Brother.
Bateman was asked to leave the show after 36 days when he was exposed trying to manipulate fellow housemates' votes in the weekly eviction process.
Yvette Fielding is a British broadcaster, producer and actress.
The show's previous stars have included Katie Price, Peter Andre, Carol Thatcher, Janice Dickinson and Gino D'Acampo.
