I’m A Celeb Contestants Face Terrible Consequences If They Can’t Follow One Simple Rule
The line-up for this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has been announced but there’s one vital rule contestants must abide by if they want to get paid.
This weekend, we’ll see the likes of Boris Johnson’s dad Stanley, Made In Chelsea’s Georgia Toffolo, and boxer Amir Khan enter the jungle where they’ll set up camp for the foreseeable.
Taking on a series of challenges to try and win meals for their relevant camps, it’s bound to be entertaining if previous years are anything to go by.
This year viewers will have more power than ever, with the show’s producers letting them pair up the 10 contestants entering the jungle.
Using the I’m A Celeb app, fans get to vote to put together sets of two celebrities before they get to the camp on Sunday, writes Radio Times.
That means you can pair up comedian Shappi Khorsandi, boxer Amir Khan, Boris’ dad Stanley Johnson, Jamie Vardy’s wife Rebekah Vardy, former footballer Dennis Wise, Corrie actress Jennie McAlpine, Saturdays singer Vanessa White, YouTuber and DJ Jack Maynard, actor Jamie Lomas and MIC’s Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo.
The celebrities in the past have been known to receive differing pay cheques, depending on who they are, their level of fame or entertainment value, writes OK! Magazine.
If they want their full pay cheque, however, they will have to follow one vital rule once they touch down in the jungle.
According to OK!, contestants have to remain in the show for at least 72 hours before they qualify for the full amount they agreed on when they signed to do the show. Easy.
Unless of course, you’re Gemma Collins, then again, she did last three days but it was still a struggle – let’s take it back:
The line-up was the topic of conversation on ITV panel show Loose Women earlier today as Birds of a Feather actress Linda Robson spoke about her time on I’m A Celeb in 2012, as did Janet Street-Porter, writes the Express.
Janet said she thought Stanley Johnson’s appearance on the reality show could be humiliating for his son and UK Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson.
I think it could be really, really embarrassing. Speaking as someone who’s been in the jungle, there’s that potential to make a complete fool of yourself.
I did it as well. But I made a conscious decision not to do anything to embarrass my children because they were really worried that I would do something.
We had a little code.
When Janet asked her what the code was, Linda said:
They said, ‘scratch your ear or something’. I said ‘everyone does that’.
So we did this little noise and by the end of it everyone was doing it.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returns to ITV this Sunday, November 19.
