Joe Swash has admitted the crew of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' and the hosts of the spin-off show 'Extra Camp' aren't allowed to know who's entering the jungle until the first episode airs after he accidentally broke the rules a few years back
The 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' spin-off show hosts are banned from knowing who's entering the jungle after Joe Swash broke the rules by telling his nan.
The 35-year-old presenter has hosted the side series, known now as 'Extra Camp', since 2009, but he's spoiled the fun for his new co-stars Joel Dommett and Scarlett Moffatt as none of them are allowed to know the forthcoming line-up after he accidentally let the top-secret news slip to his elderly relative a few years back.
Speaking on 'Lorraine' on Friday (27.10.17), he said: "They don't tell you anymore.
"They used to tell me [the line-up before the show kicks off], but then I told my nan, and she told someone else, so it got out."
The show will return to screens in a few weeks' time and Scarlett - who was crowned queen of the jungle last year after she won over the hearts of the nation - has admitted it's a "dream come true" to be fronting the spin-off alongside Joe and Joel.
Scarlett, 27, said: "After last year's Jungle experience which was a dream come true, I can't believe I'm so lucky to have the dream continue by being part of this amazing show and joining the ITV2 'Extra Camp' team, it's going to be so much fun."
And Joel, 31 - who followed swiftly behind Scarlett in second place on the creepy-crawly series last year - can't wait to go Down Under and get started on the show.
He explained: "I'm unbelievably excited to be going back into the Jungle for Extra Camp. Ever since 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' got me out of there, I've been wanting desperately to get back in there. I can't blooming wait!"
The duo will take over from Vicky Pattison - who was crowned queen of the jungle in 2015 - and Chris Ramsey on the presenting panel this year, while Joe's girlfriend Stacey Solomon has also been dropped this time around in order for a new vibe.
The 28-year-old beauty said recently: "Aw, I know, it's a shame, but Joe's so good at it. I'll be excited to watch him. I'll definitely miss him loads, but I love watching from the comfort of my own home. I'm working on loads of different pilots."
Ant and Dec will also be back to present the main show.
