TV presenter Annabel Giles and Strictly Come Dancing star Vincent Simone are set to enter the I'm a Celeb jungle on Friday.

It was rumoured that Joey Essex's former The Only Way is Essex flame Sam Faiers was set to enter the jungle, but it looks like Annabel Giles and Vincent Simone will be taking her place instead.

The pair, who will head into the jungle on Friday, aim to make a big impact.

Vincent expressed his desire to turn the camp into a ballroom, saying: “I hope there is someone nice in there who I can teach some steps.”

However, the 34-year-old dancer admitted to the Mirror that he was petrified of entering the reality show, adding: “Spiders, tarantulas, I am scared of everything.”

Meanwhile, 54-year-old Annabel said: “When I watch the trials, I keep going OMG. I don’t even like camping.”

However, her lack of camping experience won't be stopping Annabel from nominating herself for camp leader.

She further pitched in: “I do think I will play the head girl role. If I see an injustice, I am very likely to leap in."
