Noel Edmonds will enter the I’m A Celebrity jungle tonight during an explosive trial.
The Deal or No Deal host will take on the role of the Emperor and will reign over his new subjects – but does he Noel it all?
His dramatic entrance is set to ruffle feathers, especially if his first impressions of his soon-to-be campmates are anything to go by.
Noel said Harry Redknapp ‘can’t rough it’, claimed James McVey is ‘vain’ and said Nick Knowles is ‘covering up nerves’.
His most brutal comments were for actor John Barrowman, perhaps setting up a clash with the Doctor Who star when they meet in the jungle.
He said: “Now John Barrowman is one of this people who you feel you know. I think he is the self-styled queen of the jungle.
“And I expect him to sit on the throne and dominate proceedings and we will all be his loyal subjects,” he added, before letting off a little giggle.
Noel is a friend to the stars and he knows Emily Atack’s mum, actress Kate Robbins, on the outside.
It seems like Emily, who loves doing impressions of celebrities, is just like her mother.
On his mate’s daughter, Noel said: “Emily is a fascinating one. I know her mum and her mum is a brilliant impersonator. I think she’s going to be really entertaining and I can’t see her cracking at all.”
Noel, who has never met any of the campmates, didn’t seem to impressed by Haryy Redknapp.
Talking about the football manager, he said: “Harry, I don’t know why, I feel might not be the greatest
Harry. I don’t know why I feel might not be the greatest with the outdoors. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen him driving too many range rovers and posh cars.
“Does he look like the sort of person who can rough it? No he doesn’t.”
He also had some unflattering words for The Vamps guitarist James.
Noel commented: “I think if James was permitted to have a luxury item it would be a 42ft caravan, probably with a frame photograph if himself on the side…next to one of me.”
Taking aim at Nick, he said: “Nick I think he’s very gritty, very determined, I think he’s probably very good at covering up if he’s a bit nervous and out of his depth.”
However, it wasn’t all bad from Noel, as he appears to be a big fan of Fleur.
Speaking about the singer, he said: “I think she’s got the kind of steely determination to do well. I will send her some fleurs…french for flower.”
On EastEnders star Rita Simon, Noel said: “I think she is extremely supportive. I think she will understand if anyone is facing any emotional challenges or feels lonely. She will be everyone’s friend.”
While commenting on Anne Hegerty, he added: “I can’t wait to meet anne. I can absolutely guarantee Anne Hegerty has terrified every spider, snake and cockroach within 100 miles of here. I’m terrified and I’ve never met her.”
How will he get on when he enters the jungle tonight?
I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here continues everyday at 9pm on ITV.
