I’m A Celebrity line-up: Full list of stars heading to Welsh castle ‘exposed’

I'm A Celebrity will be returning in little over a week, with presenters Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly revealing who the campmates are on Sunday in a special episode.

The ITV show will take place in Gwrych Castle in North Wales this year instead of the normal filming location of Australia due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But who will be gracing the camp when the show kicks off on November 15? And will any wild card contestants be introduced a few days into the series?

There has been a host of names who are rumoured to be battling it out for the I'm a Celeb crown, although ITV has refused to confirm who is featuring on the show, these are the stars who have been 'exposed' as appearing.

Daily Star Online now takes a look at what famous faces are likely to feature on this year's show.

Mo Farah

Britain's most celebrated Olympian Mo Farah is one of the biggest stars believed to have been signed up to participate in the upcoming series.

Mo is said to be nervous about facing the gruesome trials and being separated from his loved ones – but thinks it'll be an amazing experience.

Speaking to The Sun, an insider said: "Mo's been a big fan of the show for years and was just waiting for the right time in his career to do it.

"He obviously has an excellent level of fitness and mental focus so will be great at the Bushtucker Trials and will be a positive addition for keeping up team morale for campmates – especially as a lot of the celebs are worried how cold it will be."
