When this year’s series began, ten celebrities were shocked to learn they were being split, five at Main Camp and the other five at Camp Clink.

While Camp Clink features former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips, DJ and record producer Naughty Boy, Emmerdale actor Danny Miller, former footballer David Ginola and chat show host Richard Madley.
