Also taking part are Diana Princess of Wales biographer Lady Colin Campbell, fashion guru Susannah Constantine, Spandau Ballet singer Tony Hadley, Most Haunted presenter Yvette Fielding, X Factor choreographer Brian Friedman and Union J pop star George Shelley.

Bannatyne, 66, is most famous for his appearance as a business angel on the BBC programme Dragons' Den.

He is one of the oldest campers going into the jungle, but says age is not a concern for him.

The businessman said he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro at 60 and added: "I was one of the oldest people in our group who did. A lot of the younger people who started pulled out.

"There were 25 of us at the bottom, but only 19 of us got to the top."
