I'm A Celebrity 2021 has named its starting line-up of campmates - but which of them will be crowned King or Queen of the Castle?

Get to know this year's contestants a little better with our guide to who's who, starting with Louise Minchin.

53-year-old Louise is a broadcaster and former BBC Breakfast host.

Earlier this year, Minchin quit her role at BBC Breakfast after nearly 20 years with the programme.

She said of entering camp: "I have spent the last 20 years immersed in news every single day. For me to not know what is going on in the news is going to be extraordinary. Not having access to the phone and not constantly scrolling, looking at everything is a difficult thing to let go of but I am also actually looking forward to it."

Minchin is known for her love of endurance sports and also reached the Celebrity MasterChef final, making her a strong campmate.
