TV star Vernon Kay is one of the famous faces heading to the haunted castle for this year’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!
Vernon, 46, has been forced to leave behind wife Tess Daly and his two daughters as he gets ready head across the drawbridge.
The star revealed his daughters were actually the inspiration behind him signing up for the show.
He said: “I am doing it for my daughters, Phoebe and Amber. It's a show they watch on a regular basis and they get behind the people in the camp. I think the fact I am involved in it will make it even more fun for them!
"And now it is approaching, they are so excited. Every time I talk about it, I get a double fist pump from them and they are thrilled to be involved."
It’s clear that the TV personality will be missing his daughters when he moves into the haunted castle this weekend.
But he has signed up to take on his biggest challenge yet and will head to the caste this weekend.
Vernon, a radio DJ and telly personality, started his career as a model.
He later switched to TV, hosting the cult favourite T4 on Channel 4 in 2000.
Shooting to fame from his stint as a presenter, Vernon quickly became a household name.

What is Vernon's net worth?
He has amassed quite the bank balance during his time in front of the cameras.
According to reports, he is believed to have an estimated net worth of somewhere in the region of £2 million.
And as he gets ready to move into the haunted castle, reports have suggested that the daytime quiz host will be pocketing a whopping £250,000 for his stint on the show.
