The aspiring actress has opened up about the moment she told her dad she was joining the line-up. "He is excited about me being on the show," said Dani. "When I first told him, like any dad, he had his protective hat on and said, 'Don't do anything silly.' Now he is getting it and he said, 'It feels real now and I'm so proud of you.' He knows the person I am and he is really excited and it's nice to have that support at home. He probably will be emotional as well. My mum and dad will be watching it every single night."

TV presenter Laura Whitmore will host Survival of the Fittest, which will see a group of "young, hot singles living together under the searing sun as they take part in the ultimate battle of the sexes, in order to win a big cash prize". Among the contestants is James Middleton, the 24-year-old ex-boyfriend of I'm a Celebrity winner Georgia Toffolo.

Opening up about his claim to fame, James said: "My ex-girlfriend who is now Queen of the Jungle, Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo. She was on a reality TV show, Made in Chelsea, and went on to win I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! last year." He added: "Other than that, because of my name, for a long time people thought I was the Duchess of Cambridge's brother... I would call up restaurants and say my name and they'd give me the best table and then be disappointed when I turned up."
