ALL you need to know about the latest I'm A Celebrity entrants Vicky Pattison, Spencer Matthews and Ferne McCann

TOWIE’s Ferne McCann, Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison and Made In Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews are off to the Australian jungle as I'm a Celebrity (opens in new tab) throws in some late entrants.

They will join the existing 10 contestants, who have already been deluged by rain and covered in bugs.

Here’s what you need to know...

Geordie Shore star Vicky pulls no punches. She told The Mirror that Ferne was 'quite a bitter person', adding: “I don’t want any negativity in the camp.”

“I just feel like every time I see her on the telly she is moaning about something or having a go at someone,” she said.

The 28-year-old has also starred in MTV’s Ex On The Beach, and has her own show, Judge Geordie, in which she tries to sort out people’s relationship feuds and problems. Handy in the jungle?

The Australian jungle is a far cry from the Made In Chelsea star’s Eton days.

Spencer already has his eye on Jorgie Porter, telling The Mirror: “Obviously, Jorgie Porter is in the jungle and that’s fun. Whenever I’ve watched Hollyoaks, I’ve always been attracted to her. Who wouldn’t be? She is lovely.”

But the 26-year-old – who has a reputation for liking the ladies – insisted he was ready for a dry spell: “I’m looking forward to making new friends in there, but I don’t think sex will be a major part of my frustration.”

Admitting he would miss his motorbike, the gym, and being able to eat whenever he feels like it, he told Digital Spy that some of the trials could be a challenge: “I’ve always tried to tackle my fears, not that there are too many snakes and spiders kicking around London.

“I’m not a huge fan of either thing, but you just put your head down and you do what you can when you’re in there. That’s what we’re there for, isn’t it? To be challenged.”

Ferne and Vicky are set to clash in the jungle – especially as they have previously rowed about the TOWIE star’s ex, Charlie Sims. Ferne has accused rival reality show star Vicky of sleeping with Charlie while they were split up.

She wrote in the Star: “‘Vicky Pattison’s new autobiography is called Nothing But The Truth. I’m surprised – considering she hasn’t told the whole truth.

“She happily missed out the fact she slept with Charlie when we were apart, claiming they only kissed.”


Let’s hope a spell in the jungle mends old wounds …
