    With charisma and talent, Humes has become a prominent figure in the entertainment industry, hosting various television shows, such as The Hit List with wife Rochelle Humes.

    "When I first told Rochelle [his wife, the singer and presenter], she thought I was doing a prank on her. She thought I was nuts and she still can’t believe I’m doing it! This is the most daring thing I have ever done and I have never challenged myself this way before. It’s one million percent harder than performing on stage and I woke up with knots in my stomach this morning thinking about it. But this programme has been on my bucket list for years. It’s the first time I’ve been asked to do it, so I jumped at the opportunity."

  2. Fred Sirieix

    "I thought, ‘OK this is a challenge’ and I knew I wanted to do it. It’s a challenge to be away from my friends, family, comfort, only drinking water, no coffee, no wine, no mustard on my steak and – in fact – no steak! I am seeing this as a wellness retreat. It’s an opportunity to get closer to myself, inside my head, and to see life through a different lens and in a place I feel uncomfortable."

  3. Nigel Farage

    "I want to test myself. Business, politics, media... I’ve done so many different jobs and generally I have been reasonably successful. But I have never been tested in quite this way. It’s such a mental test and maybe I will discover who I really am."

I am single and no ‘I am not looking for love’! It’s been a crazy, crazy year and so why not top it off with the craziest thing ever by doing this?! It’s definitely a shock to the system, and I am both excited and nervous. This is so much tougher than anything or any role I have ever done before as it is all so new."

I think that this has made me very strong and resilient. This is going to be a big challenge and, now I am older, life is for living and it’s one of the reasons why I said yes."

Now it is getting near to going into camp, I am so excited. I am obviously not looking forward to eating kangaroo balls but at the same time, I am looking forward to the trials – that’s the fun part of doing this show. I love the ones where you climb up or jump for a star. And I like ones getting submerged in water. I can’t wait now! This is so out of my comfort zone and it’s the best show you can do."

In fact, they didn’t even need to ask! I am a huge fan of the show. Ant and Dec are my idols too, and it’s going to be really surreal meeting them."

    nice way for people to see the real me. This is an opportunity to be myself and do something really cool and have some awesome experiences in the meantime."

I have got to try and close my eyes and not think about what it is I am eating. Heights? I don’t like heights either. To be fair, I am not liking a lot of things that the jungle throws at you but I want to give it all a go."
