There are now 12 contestants in the Welsh castle following Wednesday night's episode, which introduced newcomers tenor Russell Watson and former West End star Ruthie Henshall. The pair are set to be tasked with 'secret missions' on the show, which was recently discussed on I'm a Celebrity: The Daily Drop. 

Guest star Denise Van Outen said: “I love secret missions, this is when the fun begins!" while the former King of the Jungle, Christopher Biggins, added: "They’re both actors, they’ll probably do it – it will be fun. He might sing it all, that’s the only thing."
