Helen Flanagan and boxer David Haye will be among the stars competing in this year's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Bosses of the ITV1 jungle-based reality show are said to be 'delighted' with the line-up for the series, which kicks off next weekend and features a somewhat diverse range of stars.
Helen, who quit her role as Rosie Webster in Coronation Street earlier this year, will face another soap beauty in the form of Charlie Brooks as she takes a six-month break from playing Janine Butcher in EastEnders.

A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: 'They’ve been trying to find the right celebrities for a few months now and are pleased with who they have selected.
'Charlie is a real coup for them. She has been on TV since she was young and they’re looking forward to the public seeing what she’s really like.'
Ensuring there are plenty of opportunities for bikini-clad 'Myleene moments', former Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts will join the girls in bringing a spot of glamour to the jungle.
