This year’s series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! will welcome two new faces in the jungle on Thursday night’s episode.
Andrew Whyment, who plays Kirk Sutherland in Coronation Street, will join Cliff Parisi, formerly Minty Peterson in Eastenders, in tonight’s broadcast Bushtucker Trial.
Once they enter camp, they may be served well by avoiding repeatedly mentioning food to a ravenously hungry Ian Wright, who is 5/2 joint-favourite to face the third public voted Bushtucker Trial (which should be announced tonight).
Wright took umbrage to comedian Andrew Maxwell remarking, “Oh the drama,” when Wright refused to eat the extra portion of crocodile.
“I said I don’t want no more f***king crocodile,” Wright snapped.
After a chat about his hunger with Maxwell and James Haskell earlier in the day, the 49-year-old former footballer had likened the feeling to when Arséne Wenger joined Arsenal as manager in 1996 and changed the players’ diets:
“I’m struggling with eating,” Wright told the Bush Telegraph room.
“When Arsene Wenger first came to Arsenal, we literally changed from eating what we wanted to literally bland, I’m talking bland food… almost similar.
“It’s almost taken me back to remembering how bland the food was.”
Caitlyn Jenner, who had her quietest episode so far last night, joins Wright at 5/2, with Jacqueline Jossa 10/3 and Roman Kemp 9/2.
Kemp won ten out of ten stars with Adele Roberts (11/2) in last night’s eating task and is the current 11/4 favourite to win the show.
The duo put their previous disagreement behind them to helpfully mention nice-tasting food while the other chomped away on distasteful food items such as bull’s penis, camel’s anus, and a fish eye.
Let’s see how the new boys in town fare tonight.
