Who is in the final of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! 2022?
Three contestants now remain in the jungle and head into tonight’s (November 27) final episode, the celebrities still in the running to win the show are…
Warner is known for playing the role of Romeo Nightingale in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks. The Leicester-born 23-year-old has a phobia of snakes and said he would come into the jungle with a positive but resilient attitude.
Before heading in, he said: “If someone is out of order, then I will say something. But I don’t want it to cause any tension and hopefully they will stop. I don’t think I will cry either in the jungle but then again I cry at most films and sometimes even new food."
Scott is a former professional footballer who lifted the Euro 2022 trophy with the Lionesses earlier this year. She spent a big chunk of her career with Manchester City where she made over 150 appearances and won three FA WSL Cups, one WSL title and three FA Women’s Cups.
She said: “I am intrigued as to how I will react in the trials. I don’t like rats or snakes and if I had to be underground that would be scary.”
Matt Hancock, MP
The former Secretary of State for Health and Social Care caused controversy when he entered the jungle at the same time as comedian Sean Walsh. Matt Hancock has since been stripped of the Conservative party whip and is now an independent MP in the House of Commons.
The 44-year-old was in charge of managing the NHS’ response to the Covid-19 pandemic until he was forced to resign in June 2021 when video footage of him having an affair with an aide emerged. At the time, the public were told not to break social distancing rules with anyone outside their domestic bubble - Mr. Hancock’s aide was outside his bubble and he was subsequently forced to resign.
