Homes Under the Hammer presenter Martin Roberts is feeling a little nervous about baring all in the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! jungle shower.

Radio presenter Danny Baker and TV host Martin Roberts are to be the eleventh and twelfth stars to enter the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! camp.

Despite Radio 5 Live host Danny having labelled claims he was set to head to the jungle "preposterous" earlier this month (Nov16), the 59-year-old was confirmed as a new jungle contender by ITV.

Danny, who is believed to have earned a six figure fee for taking part in the show, will be entering the camp on Thursday (17Nov16), alongside fellow new arrival Martin, most famous for presenting property programme Homes Under the Hammer.

Speaking to Digital Spy ahead of his jungle entrance, Martin admitted he has done his best to shed the pounds prior to making his entrance, but is still feeling worried about washing in the infamous jungle shower.

"The image of the shower I have in my head is not of the girls - it's of David Haye, and he does have a great bum," he joked. "There's that shot of him in the shower and you think, 'I'm never going to look like that'.

"I've been dieting like a silly thing for the last two weeks. I said to my wife, 'I've got two weeks and three stone to lose. How can I do it?' My wife said, 'Chop off your arm'."

Danny and Martin will be joining Carol Vorderman, Ola Jordan, Scarlett Moffatt, Lisa Snowdon, Sam Quek, Larry Lamb, Jordan Banjo, Joel Dommett, Wayne Bridge and Adam Thomas in the jungle.

The programme has got off to a great start in the ratings, delighting fans once again with its mix of Ant and Dec's hilarious humour and the sight of celebrities struggling to cope in the Australian rainforest.

Wednesday night's show (16Nov16) will see Scarlett and Carol go head to head in another Bushtucker Trial - the Big Bush Bake Off.

As the name suggests, the pair will be seen chowing down on delicacies such as camel nipples and cow anus, with both understandably struggling to stomach the disgusting food items.
