I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! contestant Adam Thomas has revealed that he is constantly mistaken for his Love Island star brother Scott.

Despite playing Adam Barton in Emmerdale, and his brother Ryan starring in Coronation Street, fans keep thinking he is SCOTT. Oops!

In an ITV video interview ahead of his jungle stint, Adam laughed: "I get noticed more for my brother, who is in Corrie. I always have and I think I always will.

"Although now it's weird, the tables have turned because I now get recognised for my brother in Love Island, which is quite annoying to be honest!"

Adam is due to enter the I'm A Celeb jungle alongside nine new campmates this Sunday (13 November) and he is determined to succeed.

However, Adam has undergone hypnosis to overcome his fear of spiders and, during his video chat, he added: "I've not really got any survival skills. I can't start a fire. I'm scared of cockroaches, I'm scared of snakes..."

Adam continued: "I'm a good swimmer...if you've got armbands then I'm there! I'm not scared of heights. I am scared of heights, actually. I am. But I pretend that I'm not."

Surely with his soap star acting skills Adam will be able to hide his fears?

"I don't know if I would be able to act myself out of a situation, because I'm not that good an actor!" he laughed. Oh dear!

One person who has found Adam's pre-jungle chat most amusing is Love Island star himself, Scott. Having watched it, he tweeted: Just watched our Adam's interview about the jungle and fully laughed out loud! #TeamAdipaddy."

During Adam's I'm A Celebrity..Get Me Out Of Here! stint, Scott will be taking over his social media accounts. Something tells us we are in for a laugh or two!

I'm A Celebrity starts Sunday, 13 November at 9pm on ITV.

Here's the full lineup, all ready to go in their jungle attire.
