VIEWERS should expect the unexpected when the fifth season of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here returns on Sunday night, according to Dr Chris Brown.

The vet who co-hosts the television hit series on 10 with comedian Julia Morris, said fans of the show would see lots of twists and turns this season, which will feature Gogglebox stars Angie and Yvie.

“I’d never be as clichéd to say as you should expect the unexpected but ‘expect the unexpected’,” he said.

“The celebrities are only in for four weeks instead of the normal six so we are ramping up their jungle experience to a level we have never seen before.

“I think we have such a broad range of celebrity this year, they come from such different backgrounds and different life experiences, just take the Gogglebox girls, Angie and Yvie, Australia has never seen them off the couch so how they will cope in the jungle remains to be seen but I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.”

With only each other to turn to, celebrities will endure meagre food rations, basic accommodation and the harsh conditions of the South African jungle, while trying to raise up to $100,000 for their chosen charity.

Broadcasting live, five nights a week from South Africa, Brown said the group of celebrities were more diverse than previous years and trials and conditions would be harder even harde.

“I think this show has become famous for its jaw dropping test of endurance, heights and strength of the stomach and this year we are going to increase the level of difficulty,” he said.

“The trials team have really outdone themselves with trials that, even as hosts we are petrified to even stand near.

“This group are potentially the most full on, opinionated, dysfunctional and hilarious we have ever put into the jungle so will this mix work?

“I really hope not.”

Joining Brown and Morris this year is radio host Scott Tweedie who will host I’m A Celebrity Saturday Schoolies, an African themed game show.

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here premieres Sunday, January 13 at 7.30pm on 10.
