I’m A Celebrity line-up revealed with Myf Warhurst, Tom Williams, Rhonda Burchmore and Tanya Hennessy heading into the jungle

Ten’s I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here returned on Sunday night with a new batch of contestants for 2020.

ABC presenter and Spicks and Specks team leader Myf Warhurst followed The Living Room chef Miguel Maestre as the first two entrants, quickly joined by carpenter and sports presenter Tom Williams. Warhurst announced she would be leaving ABC Radio in 2019, where she had previously hosted a music and culture program.

Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby, Married At First Sight’s Ryan Gallagher and Love Island’s Erin Barnett formed the reality TV contingent for the program. Gallagher was discovered to be joining the jungle early with a tattoo slip in a promo giving the game away.

Entertainer Rhonda Burchmore and comedians Nikki Osborne and Dilruk Jayasinha will also be taking part, as is internet personality and co-host of Ten’s The Loop Tanya Hennessy.

Speaking to Mumbrella, ITV executive producer Alex Mavroidakis said the ‘star power’ of the celebrities isn’t the important part of the program, and that it mattered more how willing they were to get involved and be candid.

“It’s going to sound really cliche and horrible, but I’m A Celeb lives and dies by the three h’s – heart, humour and heroes. They’re all heroes because they’re all out of their comfort zone and they’re playing for charity, so that makes them heroic, but if a celebrity displays real heart, someone who’s going to give anything a go, someone who’s going to miss their family, someone who the charity really means something to, someone who is going to be the warm character that the audience are going to be drawn to, then they’re a massive tick and they’ll always get picked if they’re up for it,” said Mavroidakis.

Ten also announced the program will be matching every dollar raised by the celebrities for their chosen charities to support the state-based fire services and other bushfire charities as Australia faces a continuing bushfire epidemic across the country.

I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here continues Monday night with two more entrants to be revealed.
