Why EastEnders' Adam Woodyatt and Coronation Street's Simon Gregson aren't in the I'm A Celebrity line up

LAST night, this year's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! line up was finally confirmed by ITV.

The 10 stars, including Richard Madeley and Frankie Bridge, dressed in the trademark castle uniform as they posed for their official photos for the ITV series.

However, there was one big question on everybody's lips; where are Adam Woodyatt and Simon Gregson?

The Sun exclusively revealed earlier this year that I'm A Celeb bosses had secured not one but two soap legends for the upcoming series.

And while they haven't yet posed in their own red bodywarmer and hat, we can confirm that they are still part of the line-up.

The two men will join the castle as late arrivals next week after the series has already kicked off – which is sure to secure some early iconic moments as they will no doubt need to take part in a Bushtucker Trial as part of their entrance.

Ian Beale actor Adam, 53, is EastEnders' longest-serving cast member and currently on an extended break from the show.

And Simon, 47, has played hapless Steve McDonald in Coronation Street for 32 years.

Both stars secured bumper payouts to take part in the grisly reality show, which is being filmed in a castle in Wales instead of an Aussie jungle for the second time due to the ongoing Covid pandemic.

Meanwhile, eight other celebs will be entering the castle during this Sunday's launch show alongside Madeley and popstar Frankie.

These are football icon David Ginola, Dame Arlene Phillips, ex BBC Breakfast host Louise Minchin, and Emmerdale's Danny Miller.

Paralympian Kadeena Cox, Olympic diver Matty Lee, music producer Naughty Boy, and Radio 1 Xtra DJ Snoochie Shy complete the line-up.
