Currie set for I'm A Celebrity

Former Conservative minister Edwina Currie is set for a move to the jungle as one of the contestants of I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!

The 68-year-old, who has previously appeared on Strictly Come Dancing and Wife Swap, will join X Factor's Jake Quickenden, the Sun reported.

The new series of the show that sends celebrities into the wilds of Australia to take part in challenges including the Bushtucker Trials begins tomorrow.

Speaking previously about Conservative MP Nadine Dorries taking part in the show two years ago, Ms Currie said: "If you're going to do a programme like this ... you have to enter into it in a spirit of fun.

"If you go in there with your ego waving it's going to be the first thing that the editors will cut down."

Other contestants in this year's line-up include v eteran newsreader Michael Buerk, former Premier League footballer Jimmy Bullard and TV presenter Melanie Sykes.

Coronation Street star Craig Charles and The Only Way Is Essex's Gemma Collins are also expected to feature.
