Meet the first contestants on I’m A Celeb 2018

Carly Williams

The bad boy of tennis is in the house, er, jungle.

Aussie tennis champ Bernard Tomic is your first star announced to be going into the South African jungle for this year’s season of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Of course Bernard, 25, wants you to know it’s not about the prize money, ahem, he’s way too cashed up for that (remember when he told journalists all he does is ‘count his millions?’)

“I am doing this because it is something I always wanted to do in my life,” Bernard told News Corp.

He also wants the Australian public to see a different side of him and hopes their opinion of his image will change after seeing him sweat it out in the jungle. And, of course, Bernard wants to secure $100,000 for his charity Ronald McDonald House.

The next star is AFL legend Josh Gibson – who used to date TV presenter Renee Bargh.

Both sportsmen could be in the jungle for up to six weeks doing things like eating bugs, zip lining off waterfalls and dancing in snake pits – all for our viewing pleasure.

Aussie actress Kerry Armstrong, 59, is also going into the jungle even though her manager told her it’d ‘lower her status.’

So who else will join the Lantana star, Bernard, Josh?

I'm a Celeb has been giving hints on their Insta... and here's our predictions.

A blonde bombshell big in the US:

We're going with Australia's Next Top Model beauty and Playboy covergirl Simone Holtznagel. Her international Guess campaign has made her huge in the US and we think she'll make an incredible addition to the jungle.

Who could it be?

A pop sensation known by her first name?

Could be Ricki-Lee Coulter. Her Instagram name is The Ricki-Lee afterall. Or it could be Delta?

Is Ricki-Lee going into the jungle?

Watch tonight’s premiere of I’m a Celeb at 7.30pn on Ten.
