I’m A Celebrity 2021: Dan Walker makes big promise as Louise Minchin reveals she kept him in the dark

Louise Minchin has finally been confirmed for I’m A Celebrity 2021, just two months after her final day on BBC Breakfast.

However, one Louise fan who may be particularly shocked by the news is her former co-host Dan Walker, who was kept completely in the dark.

Dan and Louise have been famously close during BBC Breakfast, and subsequently she says it won’t come as too much of a shock that she’s about to spend three weeks in Gwyrch castle, Wales, with the likes of Richard Madeley and David Ginola.

‘I didn’t tell Dan Walker I was doing I’m A Celebrity before coming to Wales but I don’t think he will be surprised,’ she said.

‘He knows me well and I think he will be both excited and nervous for me. I have been voting for him on Strictly so fingers crossed he will vote for me a lot.’

Dan, thankfully, has promised his ‘phone bill is going to be enormous!’ as he reacted to the news on Twitter today.

Louise has been enjoying some well-earned time off since leaving BBC Breakfast behind, and said she’s excited to have ‘lots of fun’ after spending the last 18 months reporting on the pandemic.

‘I’ve driven past the Castle quite a few times and I am really excited for it to be in Wales again,’ she said.

‘This time last year I had a broken ankle and I literally sat on the sofa at home watching every single minute of it thinking, “Oh my gosh that Castle looks incredible, one day I would love to be part of it” and now I am!’

Louise and the rest of the I’m A Celebrity line-up have spent the last week locked up in quarantine ahead of entering Gwrych castle this weekend.

As it stands, The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge is the current favourite to win, taking the crown from last year’s champion Giovanna Fletcher.

I’m A Celebrity returns Sunday at 9pm on ITV.
