Three more jungle-bound celebs have been named ahead of tonight’s premiere of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.
Promos have hinted that we’re set to see a football legend, a gossip guru and two politicians head into the jungle, and now we have… names.
Former Tasmanian senator Jacqui Lambi, celebrity reporter Richard Reid and AFL legend Dermott Brereton have committed themselves to battling the elements – and the food challenges – and will join their other confirmed camp mates, ex-politician Sam Dastyari and Gogglebox Australia’s Angie Kent and Evie Jones.
But before we see them tackling the terrors of the jungle, here’s what you need to know about each contestant, and the (hopeful) drama they’ll bring.
Former Politician: Jacqui Lambi
After leaving parliament in 2017, due to her dual British-Australian citizenship which is prohibited under Section 44 of the Australian Constitution, Jacqui Lambi is hoping to use this reality TV appearance to campaign and connect with young voters.
Speaking to 10 Daily, the 47-year-old, mum-of-two said she thinks her former military experience will help her overcome any challenge the show throws at her, although she can’t say for sure because she’s never actually watched the show.
“[I] wouldn’t have a smick what you do in there. I like to go in blindfolded, I find that so much more exciting,” she said.
“There are no perceptions then, you just walk in and take it as it comes.”
However, with her former senate colleague, and rival, Sam Dastyari set to join her by the campfire, will they be able to keep things civil?

Gossip Guru: Richard Reid
You might think the Studio 10 Hollywood reporter could be completely out of his element away from his Instagram (and wi-fi) but Richard Reid is ready for anything.
As long as it doesn’t involve… heights.
“It’s commonly known on Oxford Street I have no gag reflex, I pride myself on that,” he joked to Studio 10, obviously referring to any gross food challenges that might come his way.
TMI? Not at all. In fact, we’re hoping this little tidbit sets the precedent for all the juicy gossip we’re about to become privy to around the campfire.
