In a statement to ITV, Marvin revealed that Rochelle thought he was "nuts" for signing up for the programme due to his fear of heights.

He also said that his JLS bandmates will be shocked to discover that he is taking part. "It's been so hard keeping it a secret from them, and when they find out, they are not going to believe it," he said. 

In a video shared by I'm a Celebrity's official X account, Marvin expressed his anxiety about going into camp. "I've got crazy nerves in my belly right now," he said. "Nerves that I haven't felt for a very long time."

"I feel like a competition winner taking part. It was an absolute resounding 'yes' when I got approached. In fact, they didn’t even need to ask! I am a huge fan of the show," he told ITV, adding: "Ant and Dec are my idols too and it’s going to be really surreal meeting them."

Meanwhile, Josie Gibson is looking forward to getting to know her fellow campmates. "I love it when people sit and tell stories and I hope people won't think I am too nosey but I love chatting to them and finding out about them. I love people from all walks of life."

She added: "I don't think I will get too bored as if I am with lots of people, like I will be in camp, then I think we can have a laugh together. It’s actually going to be nice being in one spot for a change as I travel a lot."
