Kian Egan has revealed the public will have the chance to slam half of this year's contestants straight into jungle jail on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The reigning king of the jungle appeared on ITV's This Morning to spill some secrets of the up and coming series, explaining the celebs are to be split into two groups before they even enter the jungle.

Kian said: "The big surprise is the celebrities are going to be divided into two groups straight away. But the big difference is the public will decide their fate before they've even stepped foot into the jungle! So Group A and Group B - the public will decide which group... they want to face the 'celebrity slammer' - a jungle style jail."

He added: "And one of these will face the first bushtucker trial as well. So in Group A we have Tinchy Stryder, Melanie Sykes, Jimmy Bullard, Kendra Wilkinson and Michael Buerk.

"In Group B we have Craig Charles, Gemma Collins, Carl Fogarty, Nadia Forde and Vicki Michelle."

Lines are open now and viewers can vote for which group they want to face the nightmare of the Celebrity Slammer.

Kian said, "I think it's a great line-up. I think the big thing is there's obviously a good mix of characters, people who are sporty, some who aren't... others that are louder, quieter, political.

"They are locked away now and very nervous let me tell you. At this point they have been taken out of society, they have had their mobile phones taken off them, they are locked in a hotel room, so they have no idea who else is out there - they have no clue what is going on! Advice for them? Stay calm and be yourself."

Lines close at 10pm today (November 13). I'm A Celebrity 2014 launches on Sunday November 16 on ITV at 9pm.
