I'm A Celebrity 2017 line up gets new celebrities as Jack quits

I’m A Celebrity 2017 Kezia Dugdale GMB Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard

Ms Dugdale's appearance on the show has led to suggestions she may be preparing to quit politics or even defect to the SNP.

Get Me Out Of Here! continues on ITV at 9pm on Wednesday.

"This is ultimately a first rate entertainment programme and I think in the world that we live in just now, with Putin and Trump, we need a little bit of light relief in politics so that's what I'll be trying to provide". And I am committed to doing that in the long term and I hope to stand in the next election as well.

KEZIA Dugdale has revealed that the death of her best friend earlier this year inspired her to join I'm A Celeb.

Addressing the fact that she will be bolstering her winter income by starring the programme, she continued: "I appreciate, however, that I am away whilst I am supposed to be doing my job and that's why I have donated my salary for the whole time that I am in Australia to The Rock Trust ... it's an organisation in Edinburgh and the Lothians that exists to support young people affected and at risk of homelessness".

After a couple of days of happy families and a shock departure by Jack Maynard, we were all very much looking forward to seeing who'd be joining the I'm A Celebrity camp.

Phobias: I have had to deal with rats and snakes... but never creepy crawlies and I am scared of them and birds.

Labour's Holyrood business manager James Kelly said this would give the former leader, whose decision to head for the jungle prompted an angry reaction from some within the party, the chance to give her version of events.

"I went to the two people who were running for Scottish Leader and told them I was going overseas for three weeks to work".

"I ran upstairs when I saw a spider the other day and I've got a big fear of birds that stems from when I saw a scary picture of a pigeon as a toddler".

"I know I am not totally useless but I will scream, shout and then get on with it".

"I am not the type of person who wants to speak to anyone until I have had two cups of coffee in the morning", she reveals. "I am surrounded by people who don't agree all the time!" she says.

"They are an unbelievable organisation that do fantastic work supporting some pretty vulnerable people across the city and beyond it, so I've donated £2,500 to them, which is my salary for the time that I am out of the United Kingdom and hope that you can support their work too". I am 44, my kids are seven and five and they haven't really seen me on the telly.
