The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here official cast list lineup is now confirmed. As the camp mates gear up for the jungle, let’s find out who we can expect to see on our screens.
The hit ITV show has returned to its home of the Australian rainforest. It comes after filming took place in Wales for the past two years due to Coronavirus restrictions.
The cast began arriving before the start of the series this weekend. ITV asked camp mates to arrive a week in advance, so they can isolate and be tested for Covid.
I’m A Celebrity will return to our screens this Sunday, November 6, so let’s take a look at the fresh batch of contestants in the lineup.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here 2022 lineup
Chris Moyles has been confirmed as the first I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here campmate as he touched down in Australia ahead of this year’s series.
I’m A Celebrity hosts Ant and Dec have been desperate to get Moyles as a campmate since 2012. However, he told Vernon Kay during a chat on his Radio X breakfast show, he would not make a good contestant.
One of his main hesitations is his fear of heights, known as vertigo. He discovered the fear when he took his girlfriend’s (Tiffany Austin) niece to Go Ape. “I papped myself and I realised I’m more scared of heights than I actually genuinely thought I was,” he said.
Devoted I’m A Celebrity fans will know that Vernon took part in the Welsh lineup in 2020.
Vernon encouraged Moyles to take part
Kay encouraged Moyles to go on the show because he enjoyed it: “I honestly had a blast, and anyone who gets asked to do it, I would say to them now ‘don’t hesitate’.
Whilst Vernon acknowledges that the “cockroaches, creepy crawlies, spiders and snakes” are a big part of the show, he gushed that “as an experience, it’s probably one of the best I’ve ever had in telly.”
Speaking on his adventure down under, Chris said: “It should be nice, fingers crossed anyway.”
When asked if he was scared of things in the jungle like snakes and spiders he joked: “There’s lots of everything in this country, like sport and beer and I am not scared of sport or beer. So I think I will be alright,” reports the Mirror.
He added: “I have absolutely no idea what my family and friends would think of me doing a show like I’m A Celebrity. I have never asked them. But I think they would be much more nervous about me doing Antiques Roadshow.”
Olivia Atwood is entering the jungle lineup as I’m A Celebrity’s first-ever Love Island contestant. It follows a seven-year ban on islanders being allowed to join the I’m A Celebrity lineup. Following the ITV2 dating show, Olivia went on to star in the ITVBe reality show The Only Way Is Essex.
Speaking to the Mirror about going into the Australian jungle she said: “I am scared of me, in terms of how long the other campmates can tolerate me. I will get myself in trouble somehow, the usual.”
Atwood reveals it has been a lifelong dream to do the show. She added: “My friends and family have always wanted me to do this show so let’s see how it goes. I love Ant and Dec, I have grown up watching them. They are British TV Icons.”
Joining the show means Olivia will have to be away from fiancé Bradley Dack, when asked what she will miss most she replied: “It is day one at the minute so I’m not missing much. But in three or four days the dogs and my fiancé probably.”
Olivia added that she and Brad have code words to communicate whilst she’s away. She’s also wearing matching bracelets with him.
Coronation Street’s Sue Cleaver has become the third star to touch down in Australia for the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here lineup.
Cleaver landed at Brisbane Airport in Queensland in the early hours of this morning, Wednesday, 26 October.
The actress was looking jungle ready as she wore a leopard print T-shirt and a matching cap. Sue, who has starred as Corrie’s Eileen Grimshaw for more than two decades, hasn’t revealed much about her I’m A Celeb stint but instead has revealed her love for Australia.
As she got into a waiting car, Sue said: “I love visiting Australia,” but declined to answer further questions about the show, the Mirror reports.
Owen Warner, 23, is the latest camp mate to join the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here cast lineup.
The Hollyoaks star, who is known for playing Romeo Nightingale in the Channel 4 soap, arrived in Brisbane last week. He donned a white cap and T-shirt, with grey shorts as he walked through the airport and was met with press.
According to the Mirror online, he said what he fears most about entering the jungle: “I’m scared of all sorts of things to be fair. Snakes aren’t a bit of me, I don’t know why I have come to Australia! Snakes and spiders everywhere here.
“I don’t mind a bit of camping. When the weather is nice camping is great but when it is raining and cold it is not so cold.”
He also shared what he will miss most whilst being on the other side of the world – his mother. Warner added: “My mum is the one who is going to be the one missing me. I am single and ready for the jungle. I am always looking for romance but I am not going in especially for that.”
He added, “I will miss football and family most.”
The 35-year-old midfielder is going into the jungle after retiring from her football career earlier this summer.
It came after her team’s historic win at the European Championship.
Scott was quizzed at the airport about her retirement plans. She said: “I have been doing a lot of random stuff but coaching is what I want to do eventually. I am just going to enjoy this time and enjoy life.”
The footballer was pictured arriving at Brisbane airport on October 27.
Upon arriving in Australia, Scott said: “I have never really been confronted by snakes and spiders in England so I don’t know how I will react to them, apart from a spider in the bath every now and then.”
Jill will join another athlete as part of the I’m A Celebrity lineup.
Loose Women star Charlene White has also touched down in Brisbane just hours after Jill Scott. The pair join the rest of the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here lineup.
In 2021, Charlene joined Loose Women following Andrea McLean’s exit. She continues to host the ITV Lunchtime and early evening News along with ITV London.
The 42-year-old told The Mirror: “I don’t really like creepy crawlies so I don’t imagine it was a show I would ever do to be honest. And I am not particularly outdoorsy so I don’t know how that would work.
She continued, “I don’t camp, I stopped going to girl guides because they kept making me camp so I definitely don’t camp.”
She added: “I would miss my family, the kids and my other half and the other Loose ladies. If I am not hanging out with them every week I am not sure what to do with myself.”
Gogglebox star Babatunde Aleshe has touched down in Brisbane ready to enter the jungle. Babatunde has toured Britain doing stand-up comedy and won best newcomer at the Black Entertainment Comedy Awards.
Arriving in Brisbane the comedy star spoke about past I’m A Celeb contestant Joel Dommett.
He said: “I mean I am inspired by him. I would love to have a career like him just watching him I am inspired I am inspired by what he does. I am a big fan of him and me and him, we talk, we are good friends.”
He also added that he is going to miss his wife Leonie and young son Judah. Before adding that he’s “a competitive person in real life you know just normal in terms of a reality show I don’t know depends what it is do you know what I’m saying like but I’m literally here just to enjoy myself and have a good time.”
Mike Tindall landed Down Under in the early hours of Friday morning. His arrival in Australia seems to confirm he is the first-ever Royal to take part in the I’m A Celebrity lineup. A spokesperson for the royal family has since said Mike isn’t a ‘working’ member of the royals, such as the Prince and Princess of Wales, Kate and William.
The former England rugby union star has been married to the daughter of the Princess Royal, Zara, since 2011. The couple now have three children together.
Mike will not be the only former England sports star entering the jungle. He has former Lioness Jill Scott by his side.
Strolling through the airport, Mike told The Sun: “It’s probably one of the longest times we’ve been away completely with no communication. When you go away you still have communication, so that’s obviously going to be the hardest bit.”
Mike met wife Zara in Australia
He revealed, “Australia is a special place yeah, I met Zara in Sydney. There is no holiday planned at the moment afterwards. “
Mike notes that his little children have prepared him for the lack of sleep. He said: “The hanger is always going to be the biggest thing you have got to worry about but I’ve also got three kids, so dealing with lack of sleep comes with the territory.”
Mike explained on how Zara reacted: “She is fine, otherwise I wouldn’t have done it, would I?
“I was always on the fence but I do think it will be good fun at the end of the day. That is the other thing, I like groups of people and I like things that can be good fun so let’s see. I might regret it.”
A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas is the latest celeb to touch down at Brisbane airport. The 35-year-old stepped down from hosting the Channel 4 travel series and stepped into the jungle.
After seven years on A Place In the Sun, Scarlette is moving on to a new property series with brother Stuart. It is titled Worst House on the Street.
The Sun reports that a TV insider said: “Scarlette has what it takes to become a big household name like Stacey Solomon and Joel Dommett after her time in the Jungle.
“She has proved to be a hit amongst viewers following the success of her property shows and there is no doubt that she will be inundated with offers for more telly gigs.”
The iconic 80s pop star has been one of the most highly anticipated camp mates to join the show. Boy George has long been linked to the new series in Australia. Finally, he is confirmed in the I’m A Celebrity lineup.
The singer, who is vegan, is thought to have planned a deal with the producers for the show’s eating challenges. It means he won’t have to eat any meat or animals during the gruesome trials.
After being asked to join the show multiple times, Boy George finally agreed: “I am bored of being iconic in the corner and if you want to compete in the world then being part of telly is part of that.”
He continued, “This is the biggest show on TV and that is why I am doing it. And now I have made the decision, I don’t want to focus too much on what the experience might be like, but my intention is it is going to be amazing.”
