Network Ten sure are keeping very mum on just who exactly will be popping up in their up-coming celebrity-reality series I’m a Celebrity..Get Me Out of Here, and they’re doing it for very good reasons.
ITV Australia chief Anita Jacoby revealed that those ‘celebrities’ who have signed up for the gig don’t actually know who else has signed on. “They find out who they are going to be joining on that first night. They genuinely don’t know. That is part of the magic of the show, they have got no inkling whatsoever.”
While making sure not to reveal too much, Ten have been kind enough to give us some clues as to who we may see…
So names ranging from Sophie Monk to Shane Warne, Bert Newton and comedian Joel Creasy have been floating around, but true to Ten’s word, no one will actually find out until premiere night. That said though, one name in particular that has been thrown about is standing out more than others. Melissa-Joan Hart, she of Sabrina The Teenage Witch (which I adored) and now of ABC Family comedy Melissa and Joey recently followed a select few local twitter accounts including that belonging to the show itself.
Could Mel-J be slumming it out in the jungle with Shane Warne? Will Brynne Edelsten pop up in a safari hat and matching outfit? Guess only time will tell!
In the meantime…for those wanting to know what they might expect with the show, check out some clips from the UK version below..
Hosted by Julia Morris and Chris Brown, I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here begins early February, five nights a week, live from South Africa on Network Ten. We the viewers will decide “who eats, who plays and who stays.”
