Edwina Currie and Jake Quickenden are to enter the 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' jungle.
The former member of British parliament and 'X Factor' contestant are set to join nine other celebrities at their camp in the Australian jungle on tonight's (20.11.14) episode of the ITV reality series.
The 68-year-old former politician - who is known for her sharp tongue - has confessed she won't be holding back if her fellow campmates annoy her or complain about doing bushtucker trials.
She said: "If I hear someone talking complete b******s, then I will probably say so. I am a Scouser and there's no such thing as a meek Scouser ... I will only get cross with those who don't try. If you sign up to do something like this show, then you have to do your best."
Meanwhile, Jake - who was voted off of the 'X Factor' earlier this year after previously competing on the ITV talent show in 2012 - admits he never dreamed he'd be asked to appear on 'I'm A Celeb' as he's "just a normal bloke".
But the 26-year-old hunk is looking forward to getting his "teeth stuck into" the challenge.
He shared: "I am not keen on rats but I don't mind heights or water. I like physical challenges and I will give them a go. The eating trials are funny but I will do them. I am happy to do everything."
News of Edwina and Jake's imminent arrival comes after 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Gemma Collins quit the show yesterday (19.11.14) after struggling to cope with conditions in the jungle.
The two new famous faces will join stars including Kendra Wilkinson, Jimmy Bullard, Melanie Sykes and Tinchy Stryder.
