Lord Taverner's celeb dropped into Jungle

Cliff Parisi, a regular attendee of the Guernsey Lord Taverner's Cricket Event, is heading into the I’m A Celebrity jungle, it has been announced.

The actors’ arrival was teased at the end of Wednesday night’s instalment of the ITV show, and he will enter along with actor Andy Whyment.

Mr Parisi, best known for playing Fred Buckle in Call the Midwife and Minty in Eastenders, has been to the Bailiwick numerous times before for the charity event in Herm and Guernsey, and is pictured above with Express Editor Laura Clayton, daughter of event organiser Toni Clayton. Mr Parisi was last in the island this summer, attending the cricket event held at Blanchelande College, which raised tens of thousands of pounds for disadvantaged children. He again played cricket and took part in other events over the weekend.

Previously he won player of the match when the event was held in Herm in 2017, helping to raise £20,000 that year alone for the Guernsey Lord Taverners.

I'm a Celebrity Hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly told the current contestants last night that two new people were heading into the camp.

The newcomers will become outlaws, meeting for the first time in a Bushtucker trial in Ol’ Dingo Town.

Mr Parisi – who currently plays handyman Fred in Call The Midwife – said he was concerned that the other contestants have already bonded.

The 59-year-old said: “There is a worry because they are all mates now and I’m going to come in and they are just going to go, ‘Go away’.”

The pair will be joining the current 10 contestants, including US reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner, former footballer Ian Wright, Rak-Su singer Myles Stephenson, former Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle and Big Brother’s Adele Roberts.

Comedian Andrew Maxwell, actress Jacqueline Jossa, DJ Roman Kemp, rugby star James Haskell and Good Morning Britain’s Kate Garraway are also trying to survive in the Australian jungle.
