7. Giovanna Fletcher

Giovanna is a bestselling author and the presenter of the Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast.

Her husband is McFly's Tom Fletcher and her brother is Towie's Mario Falcone.

It sounds like Giovanna is going to have no problem with the creepy crawlies in the castle.

She said, "The main thing about Welsh critters is that they've got Welsh accents..."

"And I think if you put a Welsh accent on anything, isn't that a delightful thing to be with?"

8. AJ Pritchard

AJ is the brother of Love Island's Curtis Pritchard.

He's best known for having spent four years as a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing.

In his I'm A Celeb interview, AJ said he can't stop thinking about what's going to be thrown his way in the castle.

"I'm just thinking about what animals are in Wales... but there's not a lot, is there?"
