With North East born Jill Scott on this series, we decided to look back at other previous contestants who hailed from the North East.

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here is back on our screens for the newest series!

Series 22 started last Sunday, returning to the original location in Australia. The first episode showed the celebrities meeting, and four of them becoming VIP’s (which unbeknownst to them, stood for Very Isolated People). Last night’s episode showed all of the celebrities reunited in the main camp, and we got to learn a little bit more about the celebrities’ personalities.

North East born footballer Jill Scott is part of the new line-up and we are certainly rooting for her to do well on the show! Last night, we saw Jill take part in a dingo dollar challenge with Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, as well as declaring her love for Peter Andre as she performed the rap from his 1995 song Mysterious Girl.

It has been exactly 20 years since the show first aired back in 2002, so we decided to look back at other previous North East contestants.
