I'm A Celebrity 2011 Line Up Revealed, No Natalie Cassidy

The line-up for the 11th series of I'M A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here has been unveiled with a definite slant towards more mature contestants, after it was rumoured that show bosses believed they were more popular with viewers - despite last year's winner, former 'X Factor UK' contestant Stacey Solomon being the sprightly age of 23 years old.
So is the list of contestants the usual list of former soap stars, ex-sportsmen and bit-part musicians? Pretty much; at the older end of the age spectrum is former jockey Willie Carson, aged 68, 69 year-old actress Stephanie Power, comedian Freddie Star, 60, fellow 60 year-old 'Emmerdale' actress Lorraine Chase and 'Benidorm' star and 53 year-old Crissy Rock. Battling it out at the younger end meanwhile is Mcfly bassist Dougie Poynter, aged 23, 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Mark Wright, 24, and former glamour model Jessica Jane Clement, 25. Despite being tipped to appear on the show, Itv's announcement did not include Eastenders actress Natalie Cassidy.
Former jockey Carson spoke of his excitement of being on the show, saying "The grandchildren are massive fans. The street cred is going to get lifted when they find out I am doing this! I know they will be excited. I have watched the show in the past, but not religiously. I am determined to really enjoy my experience in the jungle." For her part, Chase admitted "It's not something I would normally do and I think people in the business will be shocked when they see that I am. I am really excited about the challenges ahead." Former World Javelin Champion Fatima Whitbread and 'Coronation Street's' Antony Cotton complete the lineup. The series begins in the UK on November 13th 2011
