Former King of the Jungle Kian Egan reveals new twist for I'm A Celebrity campers


He won I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here last year, and now Kian Egan has revealed a new twist for this series.

The former King of the Jungle announced that this year celebrity campers, including Dublin model Nadia Forde, will get the chance to stay in a luxury camp.

Speaking on ITV’s This Morning Kian revealed details of the new twist.

“The big surprise is the celebrities are going to be divided into two groups straight away,” he explained.

“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.”

“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,” he revealed.

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

Speaking of the new campers Kian said he thinks this year will make for an interesting series.

“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,” he explained.

“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.”

While most of the line has been revealed Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan is also rumoured to be headed into the jungle.

Fiance Mark Wright previously starred in the show, and has been tweeting that he “misses” her while she’s “away working”.
