Union J star George Shelley is heading into the jungle for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Here's all you need to know about him:

George Shelley: I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
November 2015.


Occupation: Musician
Age: 22
Phobias: I am scared of moths!
Biggest misconception you want to dispel in the Jungle: It's just going to be nice for everyone to get to know me better
Role in the Camp: Jack of all trades – chef, cleaner, entertainer, shoulder to cry on
Miss most: My bed, home comforts and my mum
Dream camper: JJ from Union J, Davina McCall

George is single and ready to mingle! The heartthrob said he wouldn't rule out a romance in the jungle: "I've been in a situation like this before with The X Factor. You are there for support and I do genuinely like people. I feel like I am going to glue to people and make a lot of new friends in the Jungle."

He is also looking for a workout buddy, revealing: "I am hoping there is going to be an older brother figure in there who can show me a work out. It would be good to keep fit in the jungle. At home, I go to the gym with JJ to keep fit. I need a Davina in the Camp!"

George said it feels "surreal" to be going into the jungle, but said all of his bandmates - Jaymi Hensley, Josh Cuthbert and JJ Hamblett - are fully behind him.

"They don't envy me eating bugs at all," he said. "Jaymi for one, was like 'I really respect you, I could never do that!' Then again, I don't know if I can do it yet! But I have come from a family of eight brothers. One of my older brothers was a Royal Marine. I've been brought up on it all and I am very proud (of my upbringing.) I am going to give it a go. All my bandmates have been very supportive."

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! returns on Sunday 15 November on ITV.
