Comic Freddie Starr is on his way into the I'm A Celebrity jungle, a show insider has said.

His inclusion was in doubt after a paperwork mix up threatened to end his involvement in the ITV show before it began.

The 68-year-old could not accompany the other contestants as they flew by helicopter to an overnight camp in the Australian bush.

An insurance form detailing his recovery from heart surgery had not been lodged in time.

But today he was on his way to join the I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! brigade.

A show insider said: "The problem now seems to have been overcome and Freddie's on his way into the jungle."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
