Colin Baker is looking forward to his stint in the jungle because he hopes to lose a stone-and-a-half in weight. "I am a rather large gentleman and I adore my food," he says. "I could give up booze with a drop of a hat but food, my gosh there is not even a fridge I can raid in the middle of the night!”
It's thanks to Colin's four daughters that he is doing I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! "They keep telling me that they can't wait to see me eat something disgusting!”
Colin admits it would be the icing on the cake if viewers voted him as their King of the Jungle. “It would be lovely if viewers thought I was alright and a good camper."
Baker is joined by David Haye, Charlie Brooks, Asheley Roberts, Brian Conley, Eric Bristow, Helen Flanagan, Hugo Taylor, Linda Robson and Nadine Dorries.
This year's series of I'm a Celebrity launches at 9.00pm on Sunday 11th November on ITV1.
