X Factor contestant Jake Quickenden and former MP Edwina Currie WILL star in this year's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, ITV have confirmed.

Jake and Edwina will be shown entering the jungle for the first time tonight (20 November) and will no doubt be thrown in at the deep end from the minute they arrive.

Last month, Jake was eliminated from The X Factor after making it into Mel B's Boys' catagory for the live shows.

However, from the moment he was shown the door by the judges, Jake made no secret of the fact he wanted to appear in this year's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!.

Speaking to Reveal the morning after he was sent home, the budding musician said: "I'd do anything! I'd go in the jungle for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!. Give me a camel's testicle - I'll stick it in my mouth, I'm not bothered! I'd eat that stuff."

Yesterday, Jake gave his biggest hint yet that he would be starring in the show after being spotted in Australia and posting cryptic messages on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Edwina had also been widely tipped to be taking part in this year's I'm A Celeb. The former Tory MP, who occupied South Derbyshire's seat between 1983 and 1997, is no stranger to reality shows either.

She has already appeared on Strictly Come Dancing, Celebrity Wife Swap and Celebrity Come Dine With Me.

I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, 9pm, ITV1, Thursday 20 November.
