Former pop heartthrob Limahl is set to become the latest recruit to I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, according to The Sun. The singer - real name Chris Hamill - was the original frontman of 80s hitmakers Kajagoogoo, who topped the charts with the classic track Too Shy, before notching up a string of solo hits including the theme to The Never Ending Story. And the paper reports that after seven years of wanting to be a contestant on the show, he has finally gotten his wish, and will parachute into the jungle later this week as a surprise new arrival. "Producers have been thinking about getting Limahl on board for some time," a source said. "The show always likes to have someone from the golden days of pop." He will be joined by fellow late arrival Rosemary Shrager, best known as the chef from the ITV hit Ladette To Lady. The pair will join a jungle line-up which includes soap stars Helen Flanagan and Charlie Brooks, boxer David Haye, actress Linda Robson, Tory MP Nadine Dorries and darts legend Eric Bristow. The series begins on ITV1 at 9pm on Sunday night.
