Colin Baker Confirmed for I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2012

Colin’s a Celebrity!

Hints and rumours about Colin Baker’s appearance as an inmate of ITV’s gross-a-thon I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! have been confirmed today, as the big man landed in Australia and appeared in a photo shoot for the show.

Following initial rumours, the former Doctor Who star was wished “good luck” on Twitter by David Walliams…

But of course, Colin couldn’t say too much as he’s contractually bound not to confirm involvement until the formal announcements are made.

And today they were, with Colin lining up alongside Former Coronation Street actor Helen Flanagan (Rosie Webster), (soon to be ex?) Tory MP Nadine Dorries and EastEnders‘ Charlie Brooks (Janine Butcher) former (disgraced) heavyweight boxer David Haye, Pussycat Dolls dancer Ashley Roberts, legendary darts player Eric Bristow, song and dance man Brian Conley, former Birds of a Feather actor Linda Robson and Made in Chelsea oddball Hugo Taylor.

Speaking to The Mirror, Baker revealed that his children – fans of the testicle-eating show – had encouraged him to say yes. He also hopes to lose some weight.

“I am a rather large gentleman and I adore my food,” he says. “I could give up booze with a drop of a hat but food, my gosh there is not even a fridge I can raid in the middle of the night!

“But I am seeing this as an opportunity to lose weight. I am aiming for at least a stone and a half and it would be fabulous if I can. I just then hope I can keep it off once I am out!”

But will it lead to the actor getting more TV work?

“I am intrigued to find out what happens. It won’t be weird going in as me rather than as a character because I still go to a lot of Dr Who conventions as myself. I still watch the show and I think the new Dr Who, Matt Smith, is brilliant.

“I don’t think I would have done this if I was younger but at my time of life, I would be delighted if it did lead to more television.”

Meanwhile, Colin’s previous dismissal of so-called reality TV has been raised by certain fans, with one mentioning “there was me thinking he hated reality TV…”
