Scott kicked it off on Monday night by telling fans: "Right guys I can finally confirm that my twin bro Adam will be going into the jungle! So proud of him! Now the world will get to see just how amazing my bro is!

"He has the biggest heart of gold, the funniest person I know and is one seriously amazing dad too! My twin and my best friend! Let's all get behind him and get him to that final! Il be handling his social media! Lotsa love x."


Meanwhile, brother Ryan Thomas, who stars in Coronation Street, has said: "This is going to be funny! Go get them bro @adamthomas21 #imacelebritygetmeoutofhere."

After an influx of support for Adam, Scott returned to his own Twitter account to add: "Wow the support for @adamthomas21 has been crazy! Let's get my twin bro the crown of the jungle! U will all fall in love with him promise."

One fan pointed out that Adam had championed Scott throughout Love Island, so it was pretty fitting for Scott to now be returning the favour!

Bday drinks with the happy twin Love you @adamthomas21 ❤️

Adam - who plays Adam Barton in Emmerdale - said last night: "When they first approached me, I didn't think I would hear anything back. Then I got a call to say they wanted me. I was like, 'oh gosh I'm actually doing this'. I had to think about it for a while as I do think it takes guts to go on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! I have been in my comfort zone for a while now and never really stepped out of it."

The actor added he'll miss two-year-old son Teddy the most while he's away.

Good luck, Adam!
