Intruder alert: We finally know which member of The Footy Show has joined I'm a Celebrity.

We were given the clues that the intruder could be louder than Jacqui, more controversial than Sam, and… hotter than Justin.

But the intruder entering the South African jungle to join the other I’m a Celeb contestants is former Hawthorn AFL player, Shane Crawford.

Since 2009, the 44-year-old has been a panellist on The AFL Footy Showand has even broken a few world records. 

Among other things, the dad of four let 157 Golden Orb spiders cover his body inside a large tank for 30 seconds, and kissed 96 people on the face in one minute, so it’s safe to say he’s well-equipped for the jungle.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news:


If you aren’t a footy fan and find yourself recognising him, there’s a very good reason.

Crawford tried his luck as a presenter on Getaway and Postcards, and also made an appearance as a contestant on the first season of The Celebrity Apprentice, on which he raised $49,311 for Breast Cancer Network Australia.

Crawford has four sons – Charlie, 12, Benjamin, 10, and twins Jack and Harry, 8 – with his wife Olivia Anderson.

In 1999, Crawford was given the Brownlow Medal for Best and Fairest in Australian Football Club, so let’s hope he keeps being a good bloke in the jungle.
