The grime star will appear alongside Jimmy Bullard, Melanie Sykes, Craig Charles and others

Rapper Tinchy Stryder has been announced as one of the contestants of this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

The grime star will appear alongside the likes of footballer Jimmy Bullard, TV presenter Melanie Sykes, DJ and Coronation Street star Craig Charles and more. The new series will start on on ITV 1 this Sunday (November 16).

Tinchy follows fellow music stars including Sex Pistols/PiL frontman John Lydon, former East 17 singer Brian Harvey, McBusted’s Matt Willis and Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder in appearing on the ITV jungle-based show.

Tinchy Stryder recently shared a video for his collaborative track with children’s television personalities The Chuckle Brothers. The resulting track, ‘To Me, To You’, which you can see below, was released to raise funds for the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust.

The Chuckle Brothers’ manager Phil Dale commented on the team-up: “Tinchy grew up with The Chuckle Brothers and has been a longtime fan of theirs, so after that he invited them to his London studio.”

He continued: “It was just a bit of fun to see what could happen because they really got on with each other. Then they came back and filmed the video. You couldn’t put it together if you tried but it was just the very fact that they were having fun with Tinchy, and he was having fun with them and they got on like a house on fire. They still contact each other all the time.”
