I'm a Celebrity line-up shock...

...most of the 'celebrities' are actually personalities that people have heard of.
I thought the standard for this type of show was to get Z-listers that nobody had heard of!

I thought the remit was to have anyone no-one wants to hear of Wink

Nope, they've apparently moved up to 'Y-listers' (must want to improve viewing figures - I will NOT be included)  Crazy

It's reported that Nadine Dorries is getting £40,000 for taking part.  If she gets out of there in an early round it will be a nice little earner for her Smiley

I don't know how he can say that.  I don't think she had much of a political future anyway.

ITV relies on adverting and the advertyisers rely on ratings. Shows like this produce ratings which the advertisers are pleased with.

Re: I'm a Celebrity line-up shock...

I never watched the show in previous years because of all the unknown / forgotten celebs that ITV seemed to think would pull in the viewers. Who really wants to watch a non-celeb putting up with creepy crawlies?
This year almost looks slightly interesting.. I might tune in for a whole 30 seconds!
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
