Emmerdale's Lucy Pargeter, designer David Emanuel, Miss GB Amy Willerton, TV host Matthew Wright and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Alfonso Ribeiro complete the lineup.

Adlington said: "It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. It's a chance for me to do something completely different in my life.

"I am also looking forward to being part of a team again. Since I retired, I have missed that team environment and so I am really looking forward to feeling like a big family, enjoying working together and being part of all the banter."

Davis stated: "I'm not really using the jungle as any type of 'stepping stone' but purely just to have a laugh and a challenge."

Essex beamed: "Five years ago, I started watching the show and now I really can't believe I am going to be going in the jungle. I am so happy. I can't say this enough. What an incredible opportunity."

Ant & Dec return as hosts of the long-running series, which launches on Sunday, November 17 at 9pm.

Laura Whitmore, Joe Swash and Rob Beckett will also host I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here Now! every night on ITV2.
