After weeks of rumours the final line up for this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! has been revealed.

They include a newsreader, reality TV stars and ex-footballer.

Last year saw Westlife’s Kian Egan crowned King of The Jungle, with David Emanuel as runner up. There were squabbles between Emmerdale’s Lucy Pargeter and Beauty Queen Amy Willerton, Alfonso Riberio taught his campmates the famous Carlton dance from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and who could forget the moment Joey Essex learnt how to tell the time.

Now ITV has announced that TOWIE's Gemma Collins, rapper Tinchy Stryder, Melanie Sykes and Michael Buerk will all be taking part in the reality show.

Michael said: "I’m a frightful snob and perhaps it’s time for me to take myself less seriously

“I am very sniffy about reality TV and when they first approached me, I thought they were joking. Why on earth would I want to do something like this?

“And then I went through a phase of thinking ‘what the hell?’ You are a long time dead and I’d rather be pilloried for what I did than be disappointed of what I didn’t.

“I do think it will be good fun. I am proud of what I have done. I like to think of myself as a serious journalist and for that, you did have to suppress your personality – and rightly so! Maybe doing this is some kind of late midlife crisis!”

Ten celebs in total will be roughing it in the Australian jungle when the programme returns for a 14th series on Sunday.

The full line up is...

- Michael Buerk, newsreader and TV presenter
- Jimmy Bullard, retired Wigan footballer
- Craig Charles, Coronation Street actor
- Gemma Collins, TOWIE
- Carl Fogarty, motorbike racer
- Nadia Forde, model and singer
- Vicki Michelle, actress
- Tinchy Stryder, rapper
- Melanie Sykes, TV presenter
- Kendra Wilkinson, TV reality star
