BBC 6 Music presenter Craig Charles will be taking part in the new series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, starting this weekend.
According to the Mirror, Craig signed up saying “It’s an adventure, isn’t it? Obviously I will miss my wife and kids, miss the football, and reading and writing, you can’t read in there. That will be difficult I suppose.”
Craig hosts the Funk and Soul Show on BBC 6 Music and is scheduled to host an Australian special of his show on Saturday 15th November, “taking a look at what’s hot down under”. We’re assuming of course the show is already recorded and ready to play out whilst Craig is in the jungle.
The description for the show is “A man at the top of his game in Australia is The Bamboo’s Lance Ferguson and Craig’s given him the task of mixing up the Ozzie’s funk and soul movers and shakers. Expect music from The Putbacks, Ms Murphy, Cookin’ On 3 Burners, and Zillanova.”
I’m a Celebrity starts this Saturday on ITV.
