I’m A Celebrity 2020: Vernon Kay, Victoria Derbyshire and Shane Richie on rumoured line-up

This year’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Will take place in Gwrych Castle in Abergele, North Wales for the first time after coronavirus travel restrictions prevented the show taking place in its usual spot Down Under. As Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly head to Wales, has the full list of celebrities Vernon Kay, Victoria Derbyshire and Shane Richie been revealed?

Victoria Derbyshire

The 52-year old journalist is rumoured to have signed up to the ITV show after The Victoria Derbyshire Show was axed earlier this year. 

“Victoria is always game for a challenge so when she was approached for I’m A Celebrity she jumped at the chance,” a source said. 

“It’s always something she’s wanted to do but because of her family, she’s never wanted to fly to Australia and be away from them for so long.

“When the show moved to Wales and the opportunity came up, she didn’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth so said yes straight away.”

AJ Pritchard 

Ever since the professional Ballroom and Latin dancer quit Strictly Come Dancing he’s been heavily linked to I’m A Celebrity. 

Addressing his exit, AJ said: “I did four years of Strictly, which I absolutely loved, but it was definitely the right time for me to venture into new things.

“Strictly wouldn’t allow a lot of things to happen that I wanted to happen, so it meant you do have to do that leap, and for me, it’s not a risk, it’s something I’m passionate about.”

Shane Ritchie

The EastEnders favourite has decided it’s time to face his fears and ITV bosses are thrilled they’ve managed to sign him up.

The actor could be set to follow in the footsteps of former Walford stars including Charlie Brooks and win the show. 

“ITV have always wanted Shane for the jungle but with panto not happening this year and other work opportunities less likely, he decided this was the time to take the plunge,” a source said.

Jessica Plummer 

Shane won’t be the only EastEnders star in the Castle as Chantelle Atkins star Jessica is reported to have signed up. 

Jessica’s predecessor Jacqueline Jossa was crowned Queen of the Jungle last year. Will the soap star repeat her success?

Giovanna Fletcher

The author and presenter of the Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast, whose guests include none other than Kate Middleton, is rumoured to be heading into the Welsh castle.

Giovanna’s married to McFly star Tom Fletcher and the couple share sons Buzz, Buddy and Max.

Hollie Arnold 

The record-breaking Paralympian is set to join this year’s cast of stars.  

She’ll likely be the one to beat when it comes to the Castle’s challenges after competing at the Rio Paralympics in 2016, the World Championships in 2017 and the 2018 Commonwealth Games. 

Mo Farah

Mo Farah won a place in the hearts of the nation when he won gold on Super Saturday at the London 2012 Olympics.

“Mo’s been a big fan of the show for years and was just waiting for the right time in his career to do it,” a source told The Sun. 

“He obviously has an excellent level of fitness and mental focus so will be great at the Bushtucker Trials and will be a positive addition for keeping up team morale for campmates – especially as a lot of the celebs are worried how cold it will be.”

Beverly Callard

The Coronation Street stalwart is set to earn £125,000 from her stint in the Welsh Castle. 

After announcing her exit from the ITV soap earlier this year, the actress has been heavily tipped to join the line-up.

Ruthie Henshall 

The West End actress, singer, dancer and former lover of Prince Edward will head into the I’m A Celebrity castle. 

The stage star has admitted she was smuggled into Buckingham Palace during their relationship in the early 1990s. 

Russell Watson 

The Operatic tenor is heavily rumoured to be swapping the stage for the Castle camp this year. 

On a recent appearance on Steph’s Packed Lunch, Russell shared: “It would be lovely! Not been paid for doing anything else this year!”

“I’m really claustrophobic, but that is to do with my association from when I had the [brain] tumours and the association with MRI scans and as soon as I go into anything that is an enclosed space I start to panic – I didn’t use to before!” Russell added. 

Jordan North 

The Radio 1 DJ completes this year’s I’m A Celebrity line-up.

Jordan will be swapping his 11am-1pm slots on Radio 1 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for North Wales. 

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! returns on ITV on Sunday 15th November.
