Im A Celeb newbies Andrew Whyment and Cliff Parisi get ready to head into the jungle


SOAP stars Andrew Whyment and Cliff Parisi are in Australia and preparing to enter the I’m A Celebrity jungle.

The pair will join the hit ITV show as newcomers, it was revealed on Tuesday night, now that Snake Rock has merged with the main camp.

Andrew is best known for playing Kirk Sutherland on Coronation Street and Darren in The Royle Family and has long been hotly-tipped for a spot in the jungle.

Cliff, meanwhile, is best known for playing Rick ‘Minty’ Peterson in EastEnders from 2002 to 2010.

As if to prove they were actually in Australia, the pair have both posed for pictures with the local wildlife.

Andy, 38, was seen in denim shorts feeding an emu out of a cup and petting a tiny kangaroo.

Elsewhere, Cliff was pictured with a koala bear clinging to his black T-shirt.

The 59-year-old actor revealed yesterday that he was forced to take part in Im A Celeb after being stung by a tax bill.

He said: “Yeah, I have got a bill I need to pay. Like everyone at this time of year you go, Oh no! Again. I thought I paid that.

I had a meeting about this earlier on in the year and I thought about it long and hard and said no and then as it crept along to September and I got an estimate for my tax I phoned them up and said is it too late to say yes? So here I am.”
