Actor John Barrowman, football manager Harry Redknapp and TV presenter Nick Knowles are heading to the jungle for this year's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

They are among 10 stars who will undertake challenges in the Australian jungle for up to three weeks.

Noel Edmonds is also in the line-up, according to The Sun – though ITV would not confirm his involvement.

The 2018 show kicks off on 18 November at 21:00 GMT.

Holly Willoughby will co-host with Declan Donnelly, while Ant McPartlin takes a break from TV presenting.

Speaking ahead of venturing into the jungle, Redknapp said he had never watched the programme before.

"There's nothing tougher than being a manager of a football team when things aren't going well," the 71-year-old said.

"You feel responsible, however many people support your team every week. The buck stops with you. You haven't got many friends when it's not going well as a football manager.

"So no, I don't think doing this will be tougher."

DIY SOS presenter Knowles said he does not have any phobias, so being in the jungle "shouldn't hold too many problems".
