I’m A Celebrity 2019: Cliff Parisi ‘confirmed’ as secret campmate ahead of jungle shake-up

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is finally back after a long-awaited return and viewers can’t wait to see who will be next to enter the competition. Now, a brand new set of campmates have jetted off to embark upon a fresh set of challenges in a bid to take the jungle crown. But, bosses have already revealed Cliff Parisi to bee the secret campmate set to take on the jungle at the end of the week.

Viewers of the ITV show will know Cliff from his role of Eastenders, in which he played Garry Hobb’s (played by Ricky Groves) right hand man Minty for eight years on the popular soap.

He also took a more recent role on the BBC One drama Call the Midwife where he played handyman and gardener Fred Buckle.

The TV star won’t be entering the jungle alone as he is set to enter alongside Coronation Street’s Andy Whyment.

Andy took to the cobbles 19 years ago as Kirk Sutherland and hasn’t looked back since.

Now, he will be taking viewers by storm as he enters the jungle with fellow fellow soap sensation, Cliff.

Bosses have said Cliff’s sense of humour should provide some laughs for viewers and campmates alike, with the star once being a stand-up comic.

Casting his mind back to those times the star once said: “In those days you needed an equity card and there were only a few ways of doing it juggling, stripping or being funny.

“I was no good at juggling and no one was interested in me stripping.”

ITV bosses are hoping the stars will provide the show with a fresh boost a few days into this year’s show.

However, viewers can only hope the late arrival won’t suffer the same ate as TV host Noel Edmonds, who was the first campmate to be booted off the show just days after his arrival.

An ITV source said: “With Cliff and Andy we have got too big soap names joining the jungle and they’ll be a lot of fun.

“Cliff is the final piece in the puzzle and comes from two massive BBC shows. It will be interesting to see if he sees the funny side of things when he has been in there a while and the hunger and tiredness kicks in.”
