ITV has announced the line-up for this year's 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'.

'Good Morning Britain' star Richard Madeley is set to appear on the show alongside the likes of Dame Arlene Phillips, producer Naughty Boy, and Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge.

Richard, 65, admitted he couldn't turn down the chance to appear on 'I'm a Celebrity'.

He said: "I slept on the offer and when I woke up the next day, I found myself feeling really excited that I was going to say yes. My children think it is hilarious I am taking part!"

Other contestants on the upcoming series include Louise Minchin, Olympian Matty Lee, DJ Snoochie Shy, Paralympian Kadeena Cox, footballer David Ginola and actor Danny Miller.

'I'm a Celebrity' is once again being staged in Wales this year due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions in Australia, where the programme is usually based.

Louise, 53, can't wait to test herself on the show.

She said: "Going on 'I'm a Celebrity' is a big adventure. It is very different to sitting on the 'BBC Breakfast' sofa and it will be scary and daunting but it will also be lots of fun."

Gwrych Castle in north Wales has been undergoing renovations in recent weeks ahead of the new series, which will be hosted by Ant and Dec.

Frankie explained that she's set to face her fears on the show.

She shared: "I think people will be surprised to see me doing 'I'm a Celebrity' and I am scared of most things, but I really want to push myself...

"I'm scared of rats, I am a fussy eater and I have a bit of a phobia of ketchup, so a pint of penis terrifies me! Any of the eating challenges will be my idea of hell..."

The new series of 'I'm a Celebrity' is set to start on Sunday (21.11.21).
