I’M A Celebrity star Adam Woodyatt says he’s been sent into the castle with strict instructions – to spoon David Ginola.
However, the Ian Beale actor, 53, is worried he’d offend the hunky footballer because of the team he supports.

The EastEnders veteran explained: “Most importantly, my cousin Matt wants me to spoon David Ginola.”
Asked by The Sun if he would do as he was told, Adam laughed: “I think I’d have to ask him first.
“I think it’s got to be a consensual thing. He might be offended because I’m a Liverpool supporter and he’s Spurs.”
Asked if he was nervous to go into I’m A Celeb later than the majority of stars Adam said: “I’m no more nervous than I would have been.
“I’ve watched this programme since it started with Tony Blackburn. You know the kind of thing they are going to throw at you.

“I know what I’ve let myself in for. It’s more a case of how I deal with that.”
But he is set to be welcomed by several people he already knows.
The star said he couldn’t wait to reunite with Danny, who he knows from celebrity football matches, insisting: “He’s going to keep me entertained.”
Asked by The Sun if he knew any of his co-stars, he explained: “I’ve played football with Danny Miller.

“Richard Madeley’s interviewed me and I’ve met Arlene at Strictly donkey’s years ago.”
He added: “Danny Miller is going to keep me entertained, he is funny. He does some good impressions. I think he could be a laugh.”
Referring to Simon – the other big name alongside Adam who was yet to join the show – he said they would be “hysterical together”.
Speaking earlier today he said: “There’s someone else who’s been rumoured to be going in, I think possibly with me but I don’t know for sure.
“If it is him, that’s going to be hysterical because we’ve always got on when we’ve met up.”
