talkRADIO star Iain Lee is gearing up to enter the I'm A Celebrity jungle - and, judging by his career so far, he's sure to shake things up.

You'll know him from presenting The Late Night Alternative with Iain Lee from 10pm-1am on weekdays, a show for which he was named Best Speech Presenter at the Audio Radio Industry Awards this year.

His quirky, high-tempo talkRADIO show has featured everything from rants about Brexit to interviews with drunk callers, and he's built a huge cult following in the 10-1 slot.

But he was ruffling feathers with his unique presenting style long before he arrived at talkRADIO towers.

Iain burst onto our screens on 11 O’Clock Show, when he was just 25 years old. He went on to present a video gaming documentary called Thumb Candy, which made him a household name in the gaming community, and presented the breakfast show RISE, where he interviewed several celebs - a role which should serve him well in the Australian outback.

This caught the attention of comedian Bob Mortimer who decided to cast him in BBC sketch show TittyBangBang, and he's also worked for Sky, interviewing actors from the smash-hit drama Lost.

As well as presenting on talkRADIO he also runs a separate podcast called The Rabbit Hole with his producer Katherine Boyle, which they often record live with an audience in various locations around the UK.

So Amir, Stanley and Rebekah, you've been warned. Forget the snakes and the cockroaches, your new campmate could be the biggest menace you'll encounter in the jungle.
