BGT star and Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo, 23, and ex-Strictly Come Dancing star, Ola Jordan, 34, will be swapping the dance floor for the jungle floor, and completing the line-up are Eastenders veteran Larry Lamb, 69, Homes Under The Hammer host Martin Roberts, 53, and broadcasting legend, Danny Baker, 59.

The 12 celebrities will leave showbiz glamour behind and enter the camp in the Australian bush on Sunday, 13 November.

The show, hosted by Ant and Dec, sees the campers living in a jungle camp in basic conditions, and competing in challenges and stomach-churning Bushtucker Trials to win food and treats.

ITV2's spin-off show is being renamed and will have new presenters and a new format.
