I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has announced the first twist for the 2014 series: viewers can vote for which stars they want to send to a 'celebrity slammer' on arrival in the jungle.

The 14th series of the ITV reality show begins Sunday, 16 November at 9pm, when ten stars will swap their home comforts for life in the Oz jungle.

I'm A Celebrity¦Get Me Out Of Here! returns with its 14th series. Picture shows:( l-r) Craig Charles, Nadia Forde, Vicki Michelle, Gemma Collins , Carl Fogarty, Mel Sykes, Jimmy Bullard Tinchy Stryder, Kendra Wilkinson, and Michael Buerk


Last year's King of the Jungle, Westlife singer Kian Egan, revealed the twist on ITV's This Morning today.

He said: "The big surprise is the celebrities are going to be divided into two groups straight away. But the big difference is the public will decide their fate before they've even stepped foot into the jungle!

"There will be two different groups – Group A and Group B – and the public will decide which group will go into the nice camp and which go into the 'celebrity slammer', a jungle-style jail."

Oh, we do love having power!

The two groups have already been decided by producers.

Group A
Tinchy Stryder
Melanie Sykes
Jimmy Bullard
Kendra Wilkinson
Michael Buerk

Group B
Craig Charles
Gemma Collins
Carl Fogarty
Nadia Forde
Vicki Michelle.

Viewers can vote now via ITV.com, S.TV or U.TV for which group gets a nice camp and which goes to jail. And whichever group goes into the celebrity slammer, one of the celebrities in that group will face the first Bushtucker Trial.

Kian added: "The celebrities are locked away now and very nervous, let me tell you. At this point they have been taken out of society, they have had their mobile phones taken off them, they are locked in a hotel room.

"They can't use their phone or go out of the hotel, so they have no idea who else is out there, even though we know. They have no clue what is going on!
