Tennis player Bernard Tomic to join actors and sports stars in Ten’s ‘I’m a Celebrity…’

Tennis star Bernard Tomic, actress Kerry Armstrong and former AFL payer Josh Gibson are the among those who will be competing on Ten’s latest series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!.

While Tomic’s role was revealed by a Ten Instagram post, Gibson and Armstrong were profiled in separate interviews with News and Fairfax today with Armstrong jokingly describing her participation in the reality show “as a turn in the wrong direction.”

Later, this season’s other contestants were revealed to be Shannon Noll; 1980s singer Tiffany; Real Housewives of Melbourne cast member, Jackie Gillies; Kath And Kim’s Peter Rowsthorn; former Australia’s Next Top Model contestant, Simone Holtznagel;  and comedian Fiona O’Loughlin.

Boxer Anthony Mundine will join the show on Monday night.

The fourth season of the show will again launch against Seven’s coverage of the Australian Open’s men’s final. Last year, the tennis easily outrated the reality show’s opening recording 2.772 million viewers against 1.103.

In the 2017 season, the show featured twelve competitors including former AFL player Dane Swan, swimming champion Lisa Curry, talkback radio host Steve Price and former Roseanne star Tom Arnold. The competition was eventually won by Australian Idol winner Casey Donovan in a finale that saw 1.056m metro viewers tune in.

To accompany the current series, Ten last week announced a Facebook series featuring outtakes from the show.
