Kirk from Corrie IS going into the I’m A Celebrity jungle after all


Earlier this week, we reported that Coronation Street actor Andrew Whyment would not be entering the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! jungle after he was removed from the show's promotional materials.

Well, much to ours, and the entire nation's delight, our Kirk WILL be entering the jungle this Sunday as the 12th campmate, the Sun reports.

But he won't be alone, as he'll be touching down in Australia with another mystery campmate, who we hope is another Manc – but we're not keeping our hopes up.

The lineup... with no Andrew - ITV

Andrew was the only name that didn't originally appear on the leaked list and was already being pipped as the favourite to win by some – and fan's were fuming when they found out he'd been replaced by Ex on the Beach 'star' Andrew Maxwell.

But all is now well, it seems, and we can't really blame ITV for chucking him back into the fray given the outrage when the reports went out on Tuesday.


Andrew will become the 11th current or past Corrie star to enter the I'm A Celebrity jungle when the show kicks off this Sunday, November 17.

And we'll have our Kirk flags at the ready when the show kicks off!
