The former Crystal Palace and Arsenal football player will be taking on the jungle.
Ian Wright made his name playing for some of England's biggest football teams, including Crystal Palace and Arsenal.
But his success wasn't just limited to the pitch – he left the sport behind to present a variety of popular TV programmes. His presenting career kicked off when he was a guest host on Top of the Pops, before he was given his own chat show, Friday Night’s All Wright – interviewing celebs such as Elton John and Mariah Carey.
He's also presented Gladiators, Big Brother’s Celebrity Hijack and They Think It's All Over, and frequently features on Match of the Day and Match of the Day 2 as a pundit.
Now, the former Gunners striker is taking on the jungle – but before he does, find out all the important facts about him here:
Ian was born on November 3, 1963, and he celebrated his 56th birthday in 2019.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Ian Wright's net worth is estimated at around $20 million (£15.5 million).
