Russell Watson and West End star Ruthie Henshall look set to be the I'm A Celeb late arrivals after the I'm A Celebrity 2020 line-up was announced.

Opera singer Watson, and singer and dancer Ruthie, were widely expected to be part of the cast for I'm A Celebrity 2020 and had been spotted at a photoshoot prior to this year's cast being revealed.

The pair now look set to arrive at Gwrych Castle later in the show, with a show source quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying: "Every year there are one or two late entries as wild cards and this year with the coronavirus at least a couple of celebrities have been held back in case anyone has to pull out.

"Just because Russell and Ruthie are not going into the show at the beginning, it does not mean they are not going to be campmates. Watch this space."

The early I'm A Celebrity odds ahead of Sunday's launch show make Shane Ritchie the early favourite to win.
