Two Camps At Start Of I'm A Celebrity

by | 16 November 2008

The eighth series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! will begin with contestants being split into two teams.

Ant and Dec, returning as hosts of the reality show – which starts tonight at 21:00 GMT – told the celebrities their teams' first act would be to compete for a prime camp location.

In tonight's episode viewers will see whether ex-EastEnder Joe Swash or former Blue singer Simon Webbe has what it takes to brave the Trauma Tank and win their team-mates food and shelter in the Australia jungle.

For the record, with Swash are former Liberal Democrat candidate for mayor of London Brian Paddick, Sydney-based TV presenter Dani Behr, Star Trek and Heroes actor George Takei and tennis legend Martina Navratilova.

Swash, who played Mickey Miller in the BBC1 soap, got off to a good start with the Wimbledon heroine by responding to her saying she was originally from the Czech Republic with the words "is that near Prague?".

In the opposing camp alongside Webbe are TV veteran Esther Rantzen, Joe Cole's model girlfriend Carly Zucker, glamour model Nicola McLean and politician/TV personality Robert Kilroy-Silk.

While the results of the Trauma Tank task are under wraps, teams arrived at their camps via very different methods of transport.

The first team travelled by parachute, with 71-year-old Takei saying the tandem jump looked "like a peace of cake".

"What an experience," Star Trek's Mr Sulu said midair. "You guys have this down to an art... fantastic, what a glorious feeling."

The other contestants meanwhile had to contend with 'walking on water' by crossing a lake on motorised feet.
