… and I even know who some of them are.
I wouldn’t have known Scarlett Moffatt, from Gogglebox, if there hadn’t been so much publicity surrounding her journey to the jungle. Several sources said that her TV watching, sofa surfing buddies, were disgruntled with her VIP treatment and were threatening to go on strike. To be honest I don’t think they have much leverage, how hard would it be to find more people happy to be filmed and paid for watching TV? At the end of every article I read, it was briefly mentioned that the production team said her telly addict mates were happy for her and wished her well.
I would have been very surprised to see Carol Vorderman, of Countdown fame, if I hadn’t read a brief article about her depression during menopause, it can drive a woman to the brink. Clearly. At 55 she looks amazing and isn’t your usual B list celebrity/reality TV star that I’ve never heard of, or that we’ve come to expect over the years.
So who else made the cut?
Wayne Bridge – Retired England Footballer
Ola Jordan – Professional Ballroom Dancer (Strictly)
Joel Dommett – Stand Up Comedian
Sam Quek – Olympic Gold Winning Hockey Star
Larry Lamb – Actor ( Gavin & Stacey, Eastenders)
Lisa Snowdon – TV & Radio Presenter and Fashion Model
Adam Thomas- Actor (Emmerdale)
Jordan Banjo – Street Dancer, Part of the Dance Group ‘Diversity’ winners of the 3rd series of Britain’s Got Talent
After a very gruelling baptism of fire (no spoilers here, you’ll have to watch it on catch up) I was left hiding behind the sofa breathing in to a brown paper bag. They are all now settled in the jungle and getting on famously. Of course they are, they’re still full of canopes and prosecco from their welcome party. Give it time.
Ant and Dec are as cute, adorable and ageless as ever. Anyone got a bad word to say about them? No? Of course not. Squeaky clean and much loved (just look at their trophy cabinet if you want proof) Their effortless banter is so endearing, like a comfy pair of your favourite slippers. Warm and reliable. They might prefer a more rugged reputation, but it’s a bit like not wanting to think your parents, …well.. you know. They are just so lovely.
