EastEnders star Adam Woodyatt already knows four of his I’m A Celebrity campmates.
The Ian Beale actor, 53 — revealed to be joining the palace at the end of tonight’s episode — is set to be greeted by many friendly faces.
Adam said he knows the pair of soap titans on the show — Emmerdale’s Danny Miller and Coronation Street’s Simon Gregson — as well as two others.
The star said he can’t wait to be reunited with Danny, whom he has known from celebrity football matches, insisting: “He’s going to entertain me.”
Asked if he knew any of his co-stars, he explained: “I played football with Danny Miller.
“Richard Madley has interviewed me and I met Arlene Phillips years ago from Strictly Ass.”
He continued: “Danny Miller is going to entertain me, he’s funny. He makes some good impressions. I think he can laugh.”
Referring to Simon Gregson – along with Adam the other big name who had not yet joined the show – he said they would be “frenzied together”.
Speaking earlier today he said: “There’s someone else rumored to be moving in, I think is possibly with me but I don’t know for sure.
“If it’s him, it’s going to be hysterical because we’ve always met when we’ve met.”
Adam said that another host of celebrities had given him advice on how to survive the famously gruesome show.
Referring to Alfie Moon star Shane Ritchie, he said: “I spoke to my good partner, Shane. He has given me something. [tips],
“Vicki Pattison has. I can honestly say I didn’t really ask her — I didn’t want to know. I just wanted to go in and find myself.”

“It would have actually been quite like it if I didn’t find out who the other 10 are.”
The EastEnders veteran explained that he is under instructions to cohabitate with a hunky campmate, explaining: “My cousin Matt wants me to spoon David Ginola.”
Asked if he would do as he was told, Adam laughed: “I guess I’ll have to ask him first.
“I think it’s an agreed upon thing. He might be angry because I’m a Liverpool supporter and that’s Spurs.”
Adam took a break from the role of EastEnders Ian Beale and is touring the UK in the drama Looking Good Dead.
