Parenting expert, Gerry McCann, has been revealed as the latest celebrity to enter the jungle on ITV’s hit show I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.
McCann entered the jungle yesterday, and viewers will be able to see his first day in tonight’s episode of the reality TV show. According to sources, McCann’s entry stunned his fellow campmates and caused some friction between himself and former children’s TV star Noel Edmonds.
McCann entered the jungle on what has been reported to be the highest fee of any of the celebrities, £730,000. This angered the bearded Edmonds, who was previously the highest paid ‘celeb’.
On his first day McCann was given a ‘secret mission’, something that is given to certain celebrities each year. McCann had to find and hide the luxury items of the other celebrities, burying them in the jungle.
Tonight’s viewers will see how adept McCann is at hiding things, and then denying he has done it – something he had to do in order to win the task and gain ‘Dingo Dollars’. One fellow campmate quipped:
It’s like he’s been hiding things to earn money for years.
It wasn’t all controversy for McCann, however, as he struck up an immediate friendship with former football manager Harry Redknapp, with the pair discussing how Harry allegedly hid money in a Monaco bank account. McCann seemed genuinely interested in Harry’s account of affairs, and was even seen taking notes.
With McCann now in the jungle, he has been installed as 3-1 favourite with bookmakers Paddy Power.
