I'm A Celerity bosses 'scrap secret campmate'

Share article:

"I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!" bosses have reportedly axed plans for a second secret camp mate.

It is said that after spending a reported £600,000 to sign former "Deal or No Deal" host Noel Edmonds to the show as the 11th campmate, the decision was made to cut the total number of contestants from 12 to 11 for the first time in 11 years.

An ITV insider told The Sun newspaper: "Bosses for "I'm A Celebrity" spent so much on signing Noel for the show that there's only 11 contestants planned this year.

"They have really pushed the boat out and splashed the cash more than ever before - meaning a change to the format had to be made.

"Harry Redknapp and Noel cost over £1 million between the two of them and they've spent good money on the likes of Nick Knowles and Rita Simons too."
