REVEALED! Just who are the 10 celebrities jungle bound for I'm a Celebrity 2019
It has become summers favourite guessing game, just who are the celebrities going into the African jungle?
Based on the clues supplied by 10, I have put my thinking cap on and come up with these predictions.
Without the Big Bash as a lead-in, there has been a lot less publicity for this season which is set to premiere at the earlier date of January 13.
It’s worth noting I have a mixed history of doing these lists. In 2017 I surprised myself getting 11 out of 12 correct. Impressive considering my worst effort was in 2016 where I scored a miserable 3, so please folks, gamble responsibly... ;-)
Making this prediction game extra challenging is the fact 10 have a history of being rather misleading with the clues, remember that time a ‘Hollywood Heartthrob’ turned out to be former Neighbours actor Dean Geyer.
Along with the names listed below, keep an eye out for former Bachelorette star Georgia Love, and Real Housewives of Melbourne loud-mouth Janet Roach to enter as intruders.
Let me know what I’ve got wrong and who you think is going in & why - drop your best guesses in the comments section below!
Clue 1 - Football Legend
Our football legend is known for his hair-raising play.
With a squad of celebrities playing hard ball for the title of King or Queen of the Jungle, will this athlete manage to maintain his team player mentality?
Clue 2 - The Ex-Politicians
From Parliament House to the wilds of Africa, how will two very different pollies cope with the politics of camp life? You can Vote 1 for drama.
Clue 3 - The Gossip Guru
A gossip guru is about to go from dishing the dirt to sleeping in it.
Trading in the comforts of hair and makeup, how will this red carpet regular cope without their usual luxuries?
Clue 4 - A Comedian
With barely a moment to switch off for summer, this fully sick comedian will definitely miss his fast food and life’s other luxuries in the jungle.
Stepping away from the microphone and thrown into the wilds of the jungle with a bunch of dysfunctional celebrities will be no laughing matter.
Clue 5 - The Famous Foodie
This celebrity cook, television personality and author will be full of beans. But how will their palette cope when they’re faced with meagre rations of rice and beans?
Stepping out of their kitchen comfort zone and into the wilds with the most basic of cooking utensils and a campfire, their fine dining life is a world away.
Clue 6 - A TV Presenter
A familiar face to Australian households, this handsome host is also known for his acting appearances and taking out a popular reality show. Mic drop.
Stepping away from the spotlight and into the unpredictable South African terrain will be a world away from what this celebrity is used to.
Break a leg (actually please don’t!).
Clue 7 - Couch Critics
Update 7th Jan 2019
Since the original publication of this article, it has now been confirmed Angie and Yvie are the ones heading to the Jungle.
Do I get half a point? ;-)
Two beloved television critics.
These couch potatoes will be putting down the popcorn and popping on some khaki to try things out on the other side of the screen.
We think their campsite creature comforts will score a 1 out of 10 stars from these colourful reviewers.
Clue 8 - A Controversial TV Host
This attention-grabbing host is no stranger to controversy and is a huge hit with the tabloids.
From click bait to lion bait, how will this celebrity deal without their cushy creature comforts?
In the words of jungle graduate Lisa Curry; “suck it up buttercup”.
Clue 9 - The Newsreader
UPDATE 6th Jan 2019
Since the original publication of this article, 10 has released a clue for a 9th cast member.
From breaking headlines, to making headlines, we are sending an infamous newsreader on their toughest assignment yet.
No stranger to war torn regions, this veteran journalist has been in the firing line in more ways than one after an on-air gaffe left them squarely in the naughty corner.”
