After landing in Australia, Scarlette explained: ‘I am not the best with creepy crawlies and I hear they are supersized here so wish me luck with that. I am more of a glamper so this is going to be interesting if I was to go camping’ reports The Mirror

She added: I am super competitive and I have two older brothers so I have always had to compete for the limelight being the only girl. I am really looking forward to getting stuck in.’

Scarlette continued: ‘I am looking for love potentially, haha. I just like a good honest and trustworthy man, thats it. But I did hear there might be a man in the jungle with a good set of muscles. So if I head to the jungle I would like to see a muscley guy. I am looking for a Tarzan out there.’

The property expert added that though she would like to win the show, the experience is more about ‘making new friends’ and doing things she wouldn’t normally have the chance to do.

It comes after Mike Tindall was confirmed as the latest I’m A Celebrity star. 

There have been rumblings for weeks that the royal and former England rugby international would be the first member of the royal family to take part on the gruelling endurance show.

And now Mike, 44, is the seventh contestant to have confirmed his place on the show by arriving in the country, which he has described as a ‘special place’ because it is where he met his wife, Zara Phillips, 41.

It has been reported that Tindall will receive a £150,000 payday for his appearance on the show. 

There remains four other stars who are yet to be officially confirmed for this year’s series. 

Mike was spotted arriving in Brisbane on Friday morning ahead of his upcoming stint in the jungle, as I’m A Celeb was recently confirmed to be beginning on Sunday November 6.

Ten celebrities will be making their way into the the jungle on day one with more expected to follow at a later date. 

Presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have also landed Down Under, marking the first time the series is back in Australia since 2019.

Mike, who married King Charles’ niece Zara in 2011, told The Sun: ‘It’s probably one of the longest times we’ve been away completely with no communication. When you go away you still have communication, so that’s obviously going to be the hardest bit.

AUSTRALIA ‘HOLDS A SPECIAL PLACE IN HIS HEART’ 

Mike told how Australia is special to him because it is where he met his now wife Zara in 2003.

The couple met at at the Manly Wharf bar in Sydney during the Rugby World Cup.

Arriving on Friday, Mike told The Sun: ‘Australia is a special place yeah, I met Zara in Sydney. There is no holiday planned at the moment afterwards. ‘

The former rugby player told the Daily Mail in 2011, that ‘[Zara] was on her gap year and in Australia with friends. Clive (Woodward, the coach) had just told me I was dropped for the semi-final, so I went out for a beer with two others who weren’t playing, Martin Corry and Austin Healey.’

After they met for the first time, Zara left her number with a friend to pass on to Mike. 

He said: ‘Later on, Austin gave me her number and said, ‘She wants you to text her, to say where you’re all going out after the final so she can come along.’

‘You’ve just got to get your head around doing what you’re doing and try and win some stars and stuff and see where you go from there. I want to win stars because I want to eat!

‘The hanger is always going to be the biggest thing you have got to worry about but I’ve also got three kids, so dealing with lack of sleep comes with the territory.’

Popular culture and brand expert Nick Ede previously told MailOnline that the show will be a great move for ‘brand Tindall’.

‘I am sure Mike will have been paid in excess of £150,000 to appear, but the true value of the show is what you do after it,’ he said.

‘Whether he gets a prime role as a sports pundit or panelist or host of a show who knows but for ‘brand Tindall’ this is a great step and will increase his celebrity equity ten fold. All eyes will be on Mike this year.’

He also believes that Mike’s ‘devotion’ to his royal wife Zara, 41, made him popular with Brits, after he married into the Royal Family and became the son-in-law of Princess Anne in 2011.

He added: ‘There may well be two kings in the Royal Family this year – one of the crown and one of the jungle.’

Also believed to be taking part is this year’s biggest signing: Boy George, who has secured the biggest paycheque in the show’s history to take part.

MailOnline revealed the Karma Chameleon hitmaker secured a payday of almost $1million to take part, with a source saying: ‘It’s been a long time since we had a huge global star film the show and he will no doubt draw viewers.

The Culture Club musician may avoid many of the show’s eating challenges which involve digesting various creepy crawlies as he adheres to a vegan diet.

Olivia Attwood has already landed in Australia and was spotted in Brisbane airport in recent days as she gears up for the jungle.

The beauty is no stranger to reality TV, having first found fame on Love Island in 2017 before going on to appear on TOWIE.

Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner has also joined this year’s line-up and admitted that he is ‘always looking for romance’.

He told The Mirror: ‘My mum is the one who is going to be the one missing me. I am single and ready for the jungle!’

Charlene White has also signed up for the show, swapping her regular seat on the Loose Women panel for the jungle.

Coronation Street star Sue Cleaver has also signed up for the show and was the third star spotted arriving in the airport on Wednesday.

Comedian Babatunde Aleshe has also reportedly joined the line-up.

Bosses were said to be ‘really excited’ to get Babatunde involved after becoming impressed by his amusing one-liners while appearing on Celebrity Gogglebox with his pal Mo Gilligan. 

Babatunde has toured Britain doing stand-up comedy and won best newcomer at the Black Entertainment Comedy Awards.

Meanwhile, Scarlette Douglas is also set to make her mark on the jungle this year.

Bosses are said to have signed up the TV presenter and property guru who is known for starring on A Place In The Sun. 

Rounding out the ten who will enter the jungle on day one is former England rugby international and World Cup winner Tindall.

The 44-year-old, who is married to King Charles’ niece Zara, will reportedly be the first royal on prime time reality TV.

A source said: ‘He is sure to be discreet, but his sheer presence means this series will be an absolute must-watch.’

Meanwhile, comedian Seann Walsh has also been reported to be a contestant on this year’s show but will enter the jungle at a later date, according to The Sun.

The comic is known for becoming embroiled in controversy when he kissed his professional dance parter Katya Jones on Strictly Come Dancing while she was married to fellow dancer Neil Jones.

Preparations are well underway in Australia for the much-anticipated new series of the show, as it returns Down Under for the first time since the Covid pandemic

Among the sets being erected for the new series are the famous Walk The Plank challenge atop a 32-storey building on the Gold Coast, where celebrities will be have to walk to the edge of the terrifying platform before moving into the jungle camp.

Elsewhere, miles away in the heart of the jungle, crew members have also been spotted preparing various sets for the Bushtucker Trials, including a Wild West setting, a large swimming pool and a merry-go-round.

As the countdown continues to the return of I’m A Celebrity, the Walk The Plank was being prepared at the top of the perilous high-rise, with the brand new addition of a third platform.

Previous years have seen celebrities compete for more luxury when they enter camp by walking towards the star at the end of the platform, leading many stars to face their crippling fear of heights.  

Like previous years, the celebrities will be split into two teams where they will compete for the chance to spend their first night in a slightly better camp than the others.
