'I'm A Celebrity' line up to be extended

The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' star and the TV presenter will enter the Australian jungle show on Friday as the camps prepare to merge together, and 34-year-old Vincent is planning to teach his new co-stars how to dance.

He said: "I hope there is someone nice in there who I can teach some steps.”

But Annabel, 54, has her sights set on being the main woman in the camp.

She said: “I do think I will play the head girl role. If I see an injustice, I am very likely to leap in.”

Annabel admits she is not a fan of camping and has already been shocked by the Bushtucker Trials on the current series, while Vincent is scared of all creepy crawlies.

He explained: "Spiders, tarantulas, I am scared of everything."

Meanwhile on the show, Joey Essex and Matthew Wright went head to head for the second time in a Bushtucker Trial on last night's episode when the pair had to endure 10 minutes in a plastic tube filled with insects in the 'Up To You Neck in It' challenge.

The reality TV star was the winner once again after making the closest guess about when 60 seconds had elapsed, and as a result he won five meals for his Snake Rock camp, leaving Matthew returning to Croc Creek empty handed.

The 'Wright Stuff' TV host then claimed Joey - who is favourite to win the show - has been using his naivety as a tactic to stay ahead of the competition.

He said: "Losing twice in a row is not great for my ego at all and it also suggests to me that Joey doing the, 'I don't know this and I don't know that,' may be a bit of a front."
