Former Ipswich Town midfielder Jimmy Bullard has touched down in Australia to take part in the ITV show I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The show returns on Sunday, and Bullard will be joined by journalist Michael Buerk, actor Craig Charles, The Only Way is Essex star Gemma Collins, World Superbike champion Carl Fogarty, model Nadia Forde and ‘Allo ‘Allo actress Vicki Michelle.

Rapper Tinchy Stryder, presenter Melanie Sykes and American TV personality Kendra Wilkinson make up the rest of the contestants.

Bullard, 36, made 37 appearances for Town, joining on loan in January 2011 and scoring on his debut before winning the Supporters’ Player of the Year award, despite only being with the club for three months.

He was signed to a permanent deal for the 2011/12 season before being released in August 2012.

  • The country seems obsessed by so called celebrity, and I'm not sure why, it seems these days that every programme the general public take part in, there has to be a celebrity version, this one is different, but is well past its sell by date. Jimmy Bullard was a breathe of fresh air when he arrived at Ipswich, but as soon as he was given a contract, he was a different player, I wonder why. For me he was an unproffesional player, who went over the top in playing the joker, and for me lacked true dedication. He seemed much more at home, thinking he was the next Norman Wisdom, in my opinion

  • Only ever heard of Buerk and Bullard. Am surprised that either of them would take part in such rubbish. Bet they'll all be worried stiff to hear I shan't be watching them.
