As she lands in Australia, TV personality Olivia Attwood becomes the first female contestant announced for I'm A Celeb 2022, whose start date has just been confirmed by ITV.
According to the Mirror, the star has joined Chris Moyles in Australia after his arrival this morning. Attwood will be spending time in the Australian campground and has opened up about the people and things she will miss while working on the program.
Who is the first contestant of I'm A Celeb 2022?
Chris Moyles, a former DJ for Radio One, was the first superstar camper to arrive in Australia earlier today. As he landed at Brisbane airport ahead of his reality TV project, he said that ‘it should be nice’ in the jungle.
When asked if he was looking forward to spending time in Australia, Chris, 48, said: ‘It should be nice, fingers crossed anyway’. He smiled broadly as he made his way to a waiting car.
Chris is a significant win for the producers of I'm a Celebrity and the show's hosts, Ant and Dec, who have long coveted the radio star to participate in the ITV program, reports Yahoo News.
The host of Radio X continued:
‘I have no idea what my family and friends would think of me doing in a show like I'm A Celebrity. I have never asked them. But I think they would be much more nervous about me doing Antiques Roadshow’.
Olivia Attwood becomes the second contestant
According to the Express, the newest celebrity to arrive in Australia to appear on I'm A Celebrity is Olivia Attwood.
After spending season three in the Majorcan villa, the reality TV actress, 31, became one of the series' most recognisable faces. In the third season, she was matched with Chris Hughes, 29, but their passionate relationship didn't work out.
Since then, she has been on TOWIE and produced a documentary on the sex business called Getting Filthy Rich. Speaking of her new experience in I'm A Celeb, Attwood said:
‘My friends and family have always wanted me to do this show so let's see how it goes. I love Ant and Dec, I have grown up watching them. They are British TV icons’.
She will be the first Islander to ever feature on the show, and the first female star for this year series.
Olivia revealed that she would miss her footballer fiancé Bradley Dack while she is in the jungle and that she is concerned about how her campmates will react to her. She made these remarks as she arrived in Australia. The Getting Filthy Rich star gushed:
‘I am scared of myself, in terms of how long the other campmates can tolerate me. I will get myself in trouble somehow, the usual. I haven't packed very many bikinis, we are not allowed very many’.
Attwood reveals what she will miss during show
When asked what she will miss, she mentioned her partner and said:
‘I'm not missing anything at the moment because it's only day one. But the dogs and perhaps my fiance will be there in three or four days.’
She candidly shared: ‘I mean four weeks and no sh*gging what can you do?’
According to Radio Times, ITV has confirmed that the 2022 season of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! will begin on Sunday 6th November at 9 pm.
