I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! recently revealed their lineup for the 2016 show, and there is most certainly a diverse mix of characters going into the jungle this year.

When we first saw the official list, we had a lot of thoughts.
1. OK, so this year will be nothing if not diverse!
First things first, the celebs on the show this year are certainly diverse. Out of the celebs competing for this year’s title of Jungle King or Queen are: radio host and former model, Lisa Snowden; Emmerdale star Adam Thomas; former England defender Wayne Bridge; and Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo. See, we told you it was a mixed bag.
2. Will Joel Dommett address his sex tape leak?
Actor Joel Dommett is looking forward to getting into the jungle because he wants people to get to know him, and maybe even get a marriage proposal or two from the whole experience. However, the timing as he heads to the show couldn’t be worse because he’s recently been embroiled in a Skype sex tape leak — and we can’t help but wonder if he’ll be addressing it during I’m a Celebrity.
3. Will Ola Jordan cause major drama?
Ballroom dancer and former Strictly Come Dancing star Ola Jordan is going to be on the show, and if we could sum her up in one word, it would be “controversial.” She even slammed Anastacia when she was unable to compete in the dance-off because of an injury related to her double mastectomy — and she definitely doesn’t hold back when it comes to sharing her opinions or feelings. So we can’t help but think that she may be the lady to cause a bit of drama in the jungle.
4. Will Scarlett Moffatt’s preparation for eating testicles pay off?
We can’t lie, we almost died from laughter when we saw Gogglebox’s Scarlett Moffatt’s quote about preparing herself for eating testicles while in the Australian jungle. She said, “The trial I am looking forward to is the eating one. Testicles? I’ve been preparing by eating really chewy Scotch eggs and pretending…” Honey, we don’t think it’s going to be similar at all!
5. Adam Thomas is afraid of everything… sounds exciting
We all know the Australian jungle is creepy-crawly hell, so insert Emmerdale‘s Adam Thomas, who’s quoted as saying, “I am pretty much scared of everything” and we can’t wait to see how he deals with what’s thrown at him!
6. Will Larry Lamb please tell us what happened with Lady C!
This year, Larry Lamb will be entering the jungle, and while we think it’s great that he’s willing to endure hell at the age of 68, what we’re really interested in is his past fling with Lady C, aka Lady Colin Campbell! The pair reportedly dated after the breakdown of her marriage from Lord Colin back in 1975, and she even referred to Lamb as a “darling.” More details please, Larry!
Turns out we aren’t the only ones with thoughts on the lineup. Fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.
