I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! 2009 celebrities revealed

Starts on Sunday 15th November on ITV1 & ITV2

The award winning series is back with a brand new cast of celebrities preparing to leave their loved-ones and luxuries behind as they’re dumped in the middle of the Australian jungle with only the wildlife and each other for company.

Back for its ninth series, the toughest celebrity challenge on TV is set to return with a bang and this year our celebrities will face their toughest tasks as the boundaries are pushed to the limit.

The eleven celebrities heading into the jungle for series nine are: Lucy Benjamin, Gino D’Acampo, Camilla Dallerup, Sam Fox, George Hamilton, Stuart Manning, Colin McAllister, Justin Ryan, Sabrina Washington, Jimmy White and Kim Woodburn.

Cut off from the outside world in one of the most hostile environments on earth, the personalities have just basic food rations to survive on and will have to undergo petrifying and stomach-churning challenges to win supplies.

Their celebrity status will count for nothing as they battle it out to be crowned King or Queen of the Jungle.

This year the infamous Bushtucker Trials are set to be the most terrifying yet and there will be plenty of new surprises to keep the celebrities on their toes every step of the way.

Ant and Dec are back presenting live from the jungle and keeping viewers up to date with all the latest gossip and news.  As always, the fate of the jungle VIPs rests firmly in the hands of the British public who will once again decide which celebrity will take on the dreaded Bushtucker Trials and who, ultimately, will win the coveted crown.

This year the show will be dedicating their support to a sole charity, Malaria No More UK (see enclosed press release for more information) with 15p from each 50p phone vote being donated to fighting one of the world’s most serious, preventable health crises.

Natalka Znak, Controller of Factual Entertainment at ITV Studios said; “I am delighted with the celebrities that have agreed to take part this year, they are a fascinating and fun group, who have no idea of what’s about to hit them. The surprises come thick and fast in this series and there’s a shock in store right from the word go. I can’t wait to see how they cope with it all and how they will get on with each other.”

ITV2 returns with I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here Now! presented by Caroline Flack.  Joining Caroline is the current King of The Jungle Joe Swash and comedian Russell Kane.  The show will air on ITV2 after the ITV1 show.
