I don't know if they have a similar show in America/Australia but its basically dumping celebs in the jungle for 3 weeks, kinda big brother style and making them do crazy tasks like put their hands in with spiders for food. Its hard work, the celebs go hungry, have to sleep in the jungle and usually argue a lot. Sometimes these newspapers get it wrong and i was surpised to see his name on the list with having a newborn, but the papers are usually right so there is a good chance he will be on this.

I'm super excited if he is on this, he seems like a good guy and everyone loves him, he has good chance of winning it i reckon.

OMG i told you this show was hardcore. He listed being claustrophobic and scared of bugs being his fears, so they made him do both at the same time.

In the past if a person shows weakness and is really entertaining on a bush tuckers trial, they get voted to do it pretty much everyday. Us British are cruel like that, Alfonso could have a bumpy ride.

Well this is a story all 'bout how Alfonso's life got flipped turned upside down...

Let's chart Alfonso's journey on his first day on a show he's barely watched before


Probably not expecting this..


Or to be hunting for campmates...


Still, a nice lie down helped Alfonso relax into jungle life


Yes, Alfonso, this really IS going to be your next three weeks in the jungle.


Cheer up Carlt-sorry, Alfonso. There's always the Australian weather.

Alfonso has barely seen an episode of I'm A Celebrity... and after thirteen series we more than welcome a fresh pair of eyes.

What discoveries will he make?

What revelations await the man formerly known as Carlton Banks?

This is our journal of his jungle discoveries... enjoy!

We did have a show like this a few years ago, called "I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!" and it's the same show. I really hope this one ends up airing in the United States. It'd be worth the watch for Alfonso Ribeiro.

Alfonso has been pretty quiet since the first few days, its not because hes a quiet person, its just he hasnt had the opportunity to shine as this reality tv star, Joey Essex has been doing most of the trials. However today, Alfonso got to help Joey do a live trial. It was pretty funny because all over twitter people are desperate for him to do the Carlton dance. Ant and Dec (legendary presenters) asked him to do it but he said he was saving it until he came out, but he did do a bit of jump on it.
