Shaun Ryder, Andy Whyment, Helen Flanagan, and Amir Khan on ‘released’ I’m A Celebrity All Stars lineup
Greater Manchester would be well represented... if all the rumours are to be believed.
The full lineup for the first-ever I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! all stars series has reportedly been released.
And Greater Manchester would have a fair few famous faces flying our flag.
If the 15-strong lineup of contestants, as reported by The Mirror and The Sun, are to be believed, then Happy Mondays star Shaun Ryder, Coronation Street fan favourites Andrew Whyment and Helen Flanagan, and boxing champion Amir Khan are the four local names preparing to represent our region as they head back into the jungle for the upcoming reality competition show.
Fans of the show will remember that the Salford-born Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder graced our television screens on the 10th series of I’m A Celebrity back in 2010, and got himself all the way to the final before falling at the last hurdle and coming runner up to Stacey Soloman.
Coronation Street and Bury‘s very-own Helen Flanagan was also a fan favourite when she appeared on the show back in 2012.
Another famous Manc name who made it all the way to the final but couldn’t quite clinch the coveted title of ‘King of The Jungle’ is Andy Whyment – who is beloved by soap fans for portraying the character Kirk Sutherland on Coronation Street.
Bolton-born world champion boxer Amir Khan is also on the rumoured all star lineup, after he appeared on the 17th series of the show back in 2017.
When it comes to some of the other famous names on the all star lineup, Phil Tuffnell, Gillian McKeith, Paul Burrell, Jordan Banjo, Dean Gaffney, Carol Vorderman, Georgia Toffolo, Fatima Whitbread, and Janice Dickinson have all reportedly signed on to compete in the new series.
Mylene Klass, and Joe Swash are the final two to round-out the rumoured lineup.
- Popular I’m A Celeb-themed ‘Jungle Beats’ challenge for students returns to Manchester
- Ant and Dec’s mocking of the government’s alleged ‘Christmas party’ on I’m A Celeb goes viral
- Manchester officially out of the running to host Eurovision Song Contest 2023
The release of the star-studded reported lineup comes after presenters Ant and Dec recently revealed that they were filming the iconic ITV spin-off series in South Africa.
Speaking ahead of the all stars series airing, a source close to the show told The Sun: “It’s a different format to Australia, who knows when and where celebrities will enter camp, literally anything could happen.
“It’s not clear how many will start in camp or how many will be there by the end when one is crowned King or Queen of the jungle, possibly for a second time.
“It’s the best of I’m A Celebrity, quite literally.
“But there’s some twists and surprises along the way for viewers and campers so it’s not going to be as straightforward as they might think.”
