Malcolm McLaren, the former manager of punk legends The Sex Pistols and PR guru Lynne Franks, are this year's Jewish contestants taking part in ITV's I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!

McLaren, 61, who also had a successful career as a solo musician and Franks, 59, who is said to have inspired PR sitcom Absolutely Fabulous will be making their I'm A Celebrity debut on Monday in the Australian jungle.

McLaren is said to have a fear of snakes and has given himself a motto of "Don't Bundle The Jungle" to help psyched himself up while Franks is worried she will have to share a toilet with other people.

"I've found it very nice to see people really supporting each other last year, and I also think 'don't flip out'. Jan Leeming did flip out a lot. Maybe I will, I'm not afraid of screaming or being scared and showing that or crying."

Other previous Jewish contestants have included former glam model Katie 'Jordan' Price, All Saints singer Natalie Appleton, ex-Blue vocalist Anthony Costa, music promoter David Gest and spoon bender Uri Geller.
