CONFIRMED: I'm A Celebrity will be welcoming TWO new arrivals, although fans won't be so surprised to see who they are. Introducing... Danny Baker and Martin Roberts.

Danny and Martin were both heavily rumoured to be heading into the jungle before I'm A Celeb's new series. They never made the original lineup, but it looks like Danny and Martin will be venturing into camp as latecomers.

Both Danny and Martin have been pictured out in Australia, after touching down in Brisbane, and have been getting to know its local wildlife before they give up a life of luxury.

So far no other details have been released surrounding Danny and Martin's addition to camp, but fans can expect to see them joining the others real soon.

Danny, 59, had previously dismissed rumours he had signed up to I'm A Celebrity. Taking to Twitter, he tweeted: "Sitting here seeing I am going in the Jungle next week. Chums, the very idea is preposterous. And to people I'm now working with: calm down."

He also added in another tweet: "To be fair, I did have talks with #IACGMOOH this year but when I said my luxury item had to be a case of white wine the f**kers backed out."

Turns out he was totally bluffing!

Viewers will know Danny best as a radio and TV presenter. He has also appeared on a string of TV shows, including The Six O'Clock Show and Have I Got News For You.

Danny has also been a writer for Top Gear.

Martin, meanwhile, is famed for hosting Homes Under The Hammer and Wish You Were Here...? and he also appeared as a contestant on Celebrity Masterchef back in 2010.

This year's celebrities already in camp.

Both Danny and Martin are yet to enter camp, but the rest of the show's celebrities have been making themselves right at home - not without experiencing a few creepy crawlies on the way, though.

Scarlett Moffatt, Ola Jordan, Jordan Banjo and Sam Quek were the first four campmates to take part in a bushtucker trial: the Tomb of Torment. They had to endure ten minutes lying down in a tomb, while being joined by 120,000 critters. All four managed to last it out and successfully won 10 meals for camp.

Fans will soon get to see Scarlett and Carol Vorderman take on the Big Bush Bake Off, this series' first eating trial and it has been revealed that Jordan, Wayne Bridge, Joel Dommett and Adam Thomas have been voted to take on the latest trial, Stranded.

Stranded will see the celebrities using morse code to try and earn meals for camp, but of course, there'll be a slew of critters to put them off target.

I'm A Celebrity airs nightly on ITV.
