The first ten official I'm A Celebrity 2018 contestants were confirmed by ITV on Monday.

Doctor Who actor John, 51, is now the favourite to win the entire series already with odds at 11/4, while DIY SOS presenter Nick Knowles is hotly tipped to be the first voted out of the hugely-popular reality competition at 7/2.

Noel Edmonds is set to appear as the 11th campmate on I'm A Celebrity.

They are joined by The Chase legend Anne Hegerty, football manager Harry Redknapp, Coronation Street actress Sair Khan, and The Inbetweeners star Emily Atack.

The series, hosted by Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby, returns to Virgin Media One and ITV this Sunday, November 18, at 9:00pm.

Barrowman, who is the bookmakers' current favourite to win the show's title, said: "I would be over the moon if I won".

Speaking ahead of venturing into the jungle, Redknapp said he had never watched the programme before.

"You haven't got many friends when it's not going well as a football manager". The buck stops with you.

"For me eating testicles is going to be the worst", said the 20-year-old actor.

"If they put me in a box like a coffin, I know I am going to have a problem", said the 51-year-old.

Dec told The Sun: "It is obviously tinged with sadness that Ant won't be coming this year, I'm going to really miss him, but it's only for one series and he'll be back stronger next year".

Southampton Football Club have poked fun at former manager Harry Redknapp for his upcoming appearance on I'm A Celebrity...

Made in Chelsea star Georgia "Toff" Toffolo was the victor of the 2017 edition of the show and this year's line-up includes a famous football manager, an X-Factor runner-up and a former soap star. I think they will be surprised but I have known for quite a while and I am both excited and nervous now.

Former Doctor Who star Barrowman, meanwhile, said he was looking forward to "losing his love handles".

Simons' character Roxy Mitchell was very popular in EastEnders but that didn't save her from being killed off.
