Meet Simon Gregson
Coronation Street star – known to millions as Steve McDonald for more than three decades – predicts the rest of the Corrie cast will be on speed dial voting for him to do the famous Trials.
“I am excited and I know the rest of my cast friends will find it highly amusing I am doing this show! Everyone at work is a huge fan of I’m A Celebrity. They will be wanting to find out what I am up to each evening and what is coming out of my mouth or going in my mouth! They won’t be voting for me to not do a trial. They will definitely want me to go through some pain.”
Phobias: “Big spiders”
Biggest misconception you want to dispel in the Castle: “It will be nice to show people I am a normal family man and not living in a celebrity bubble”
Role in the camp: “Cook and entertainer”
