Brian Conley is set to star in 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'
The 51-year-old comedian has signed up to take part in the ITV1 reality show and face his fears in the Australian Outback after years of declining producers' offers.
Brian is good friends with presenting duo Ant and Dec, and he joked to the Daily Star newspaper: "I asked Ant and Dec if they'd advise me to do it and they said 'Don't'."
The funnyman has been dubbed 'Mr Million Man' in the past thanks to his status as the highest paid celebrity on TV in the 90s as the host of 'The Brian Conley Show'.
Brian has also hosted BBC One lottery shows and had a successful career in pantomime, playing loveable joker Buttons in several productions . He is currently touring the UK in a musical production of 'Oliver!'.
The show's impressive line-up this year includes former 'Coronation Street' star Helen Flanagan, eccentric singer Grace Jones, darts champion Eric Bristow, 'Birds of a Feather' actress Linda Robson and Lindsay Lohan's infamously outspoken mother, Dina.
The new series kicks off in November on ITV1.
