Brighton vlogger Jack Maynard has admitted he’s ‘scared of everything’ after the announcement that he will be competing in the popular ITV show I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.

Jack, who will be missing his 23rd birthday while in the jungle, will be joined by Rebekah Vardy, Leicester and England footballer Jamie Vardy’s wife, comedian Shappi Khorsandi, boxing champion Amir Khan and Made in Chelsea star Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo among others.

Jack is set to become the first ever YouTube vlogger to appear on the show.

However, asked what his phobias are, he replied: “I think I am scared of everything. When I go in, I will find out what I am properly scared of.”

He says he can’t wait to share with his camp-mates what life working on the Internet is really like.

Readily admitting he is chuffed to bits to have been picked ahead of so many other rival vloggers to go in the famous ITV Jungle, the Internet sensation says he hopes to do the social media world ‘proud’.

“We are the most famous people you’ve never heard of...” he says.

“One of the main reasons I am definitely doing it is to be the first YouTuber to go on a show that is so massive in this country. That is quite amazing. You can’t get anything more high profile than this and it’s going to lead to so many other great opportunities. I can’t wait to find out what!”
