I'm A Celebrity line-up revealed

Stacey Solomon, Sheryl Gascoigne and Shaun Ryder have been announced as among the stars taking part in this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Nigel Havers, Britt Ekland, Gillian McKeith, rapper Aggro Santos, Playboy model Kayla Collins, ex-MP Lembit Opik and Olympic medallist Linford Christie are also heading for the Australian jungle.

Former Happy Mondays star Shaun - whose presence on the new series had already been revealed - said he was dreading being on camera - and was only doing the show to make his family proud.

Shaun, a former heroin addict known for his four-letter outbursts, said: "It's thanks to my missus and the kids that I am doing this. Me, my kids and the missus all watch the show. We really love it. swore I would not do the programme and I have to admit that when they first approached me about doing it, I blanked the idea for a month. But I have got six kids who want me to do the show, the wife wants me to do the show - and that's why I am doing it. I do want to make them proud."

Model Kayla said she may be looking for love in the jungle and has promised to wear a number of bikinis - to promote her new range of swimwear - but she reckons she will struggle with tiny portions of food and will probably throw up when forced to eat nasties.

One of the most unlikely I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! contestants is respected actor Nigel, who admitted: "Nobody like me has ever done it before and it strangely appealed to me. It is a challenge and it will surprise people."
