I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is throwing soap favourites Andrew Whyment and Cliff Parisi into the jungle to mix things up.

Cliff Parisi is best known for playing Minty Peterson on EastEnders from 2002-2010. He has also made appearances on Hollyoaks and Casualty over the years.

However, since 2012 the actor has starred as Fred Buckle, a handyman, in Call the Midwife where he’s worked alongside stars such as Miranda Hart, Helen George and Miriam Margolyes.

Coronation Street fans will recognise Andy for playing the hapless factory worker Kirk Sutherland.

The actors are set to join the other celebs this week now that Snake Rock has merged with the main camp.

Ahead of their jungle debut, Andy, 38 and 59-year-old Cliff posed with some Australian wildlife to get them in the mood for camp.

In a fun photoshoot the Coronation Street star poses with and feeds an emu, looking relaxed in a pink shirt and denim shorts.

Another picture shows the actor beaming while crouched next to a kangaroo.

Meanwhile Cliff, wearing a black T-shirt and jeans, gets to have cuddles with a koala.

Fans were confused when the line-up for this year was first announced and Andrew, who had been rumoured to appear, wasn’t on the list.

And Cliff’s addition to the jungle was only revealed on Monday night.

‘With Cliff and Andy we have got two big soap names joining the jungle and they’ll be a lot of fun,’ an ITV source told The Mirror.

‘Cliff is the final piece in the puzzle and comes from two massive BBC shows. It will be interesting to see if he sees the funny side of things when he has been in there a while and the hunger and tiredness kicks in.’

They join current campers Caitlyn Jenner, Kate Garraway, Adele Roberts, Nadine Coyle, Jacqueline Jossa, Roman Kemp, Ian Wright, James Haskall, Myles Stephenson and Andrew Maxwell.

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here airs daily at 9pm on ITV.
