I'm A Celebrity will be returning in a week's time with presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly revealing who the campmates are in tonight's special episode of the show.

The ITV show will take place in Gwrych Castle in North Wales this year instead of the normal filming location of Australia due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But who will be gracing the camp when the show kicks off on November 15? And will any wild card contestants be introduced a few days into the series?

Daily Star Online takes a look at what famous faces are featuring on this year's show.

Mo Farah

Britain's most celebrated Olympian Mo Farah is one of the biggest stars to have been signed up to participate in the upcoming series.

Explaining his reasons for going on I’m A Celebrity, Mo says: “I’ve watched it on telly and thought to myself I would like to challenge myself and see what I can do – and so that is the whole reason behind it.”

"I know a lot of people will be surprised as they don’t see me in that way. They associate me with running and winning but nothing other than that.

"And my kids have been on at me too saying ‘I can’t see you doing that dad’ but I want to give it a go!"

“I want to have fun in the camp!”

Talking of her stint, she said: “I’m A Celebrity is such feel good television and I can’t wait to take on the trials and be part of the camp.

Shane Richie

Shane Richie has admitted he's glad to be going on I'm A Celeb as he is currently "skint" and has had to borrow money from his pals during the coronavirus crisis.

He is famed for his role of Alfie Moon on the BBC soap EastEnders.

He often performs in pantomimes across the country in the run up to Christmas but this year he will be swapping the stage for North Wales.

Talking about the show he said: “We were going to fit it around my other work projects as I was going on tour, doing a TV series and panto but that all got cancelled in March. “And now I am literally skint!"

Victoria Derbyshire

Victoria Derbyshire is an award-winning English journalist and broadcaster.

The star has signed up to I'm A Celebrity after her BBC show was axed by the broadcaster after dramatic cuts.

First airing in 2015, the weekly show covered current affairs.

Beverley Callard

Coronation Street icon Beverley Callard is known for playing Steve McDonald's mum Liz in the ITV soap.

Beverley, 63, disappeared from Corrie earlier this year and later revealed she needed a full hip replacement.

Beverley says she's won't be wearing racy outfits like Liz though.

She said: “They see me as Liz and I think they think I will be going in with a wonder bra on and a very short skirt!

“Well to be totally honest, I am just the opposite! I hate being dressed up and I don’t care if my nails break either! I am quite at home in comfy baggy clothes.”

As the star is still recovering from her surgery she may struggle to take part in the challenges ITV producers are likely to plan for the show.

Vernon Kay

TV presenter Vernon Kay 46, has reportedly signed an £250,000 deal to appear on I'm A Celebrity.

He was last month spotted heading into a London studio for what was alleged to be a promotional photoshoot for the hit ITV series.

Vernon says he's signed up to the show to make his two daughters Phoebe and Amber proud.

AJ Pritchard

AJ Pritchard quit Strictly Come Dancing this year and now is swapping sparkly outfits for the the rugged landscape of North Wales.

The star gave a cheeky diss to his former show as he spoke about going into the castle.

Appearing in reality TV shows runs in the family as his brother Curtis enjoyed success on Love Island.

Jessica Plummer

EastEnders star Jessica Plummer is a hot favourite after her dark domestic abuse storyline gripped viewers.

Talking about starring, she said: “Everyone I have told think I am mental,” she admits.

“My family are all like ‘Jess seriously, you are such a scaredy cat and you are so precious about your luxuries, what are you signing up for?!”

The Chantelle Atkins star added: “But I have reminded them I did go camping as a kid and I know I have got it in me. I am quite competitive, I played sports as a kid and I would really beat myself up if I didn’t give it my all.

"Hopefully this will spur me on!”

Hollie Arnold

The 26-year-old is a record-breaking javelin athlete who set a world record at the Rio Paralympics in 2016.

She's also represented Britain at the 2017 World Championships and 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Talking about the show, Hollie said she doesn't want people to focus on her disability.

"Yes I have a missing arm and I am in the Paralympics but I want to show people nothing stops me and it shouldn’t stop anyone else either."

Jordan North

Radio 1 DJ's Jordan North, 30, was reportedly the final name added to the celebrity lineup for this year's show.

He is also the main cover presenter for Scott Mills and Nick Grimshaw.
