Sport stars heading into the jungle for the new series of I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! will have to follow some secret rules.
As the popular TV show makes its return later in the month, the much-anticipated lineup for the new series was announced on Thursday night.
From the world of sport, former cruiserweight, heavyweight and light-heavyweight boxing champion Tony Bellew will be heading to the jungle alongside jockey Frankie Dettori.
The famous sports stars will have to adhere to some secret hidden rules during their time on the show.
As revealed by former I’m A Celeb contestant and ex-BBC journalist Jennie Bond, there are some strict rules that are hidden from the viewers.
She told The Standard last year: “You get woken up by some loudspeaker at some unearthly hour. And then you’ve got hours and hours and hours and hours to do nothing.
“You’re not allowed to know what time it is.”
Bond continued: “With trials, this causes a lot of conflict within the camp, actually, and I think particularly with action men like Mike [Tindall], because it’s incredibly boring, the days are so long.
“Unless you are voted to do a trial, which may be quite unpleasant but at least it gets you out and about for a few hours. I must say, I think it is the most real reality show that I know anything about.
“I really did imagine, like so many people do, when you go in there that, yeah, yeah, you say you’re starving and actually people say: ‘Actually, you’re gonna get a cheese sandwich’ or something behind the scenes.”
The lineup also includes former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, Britney Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn and TV personality Fred Sirieix.
The new series of I'm A Celeb the new series kicking off on Sunday, November 19.
