I’m A Celebrity star Anne Hegerty’s lookalike brother Jon arrives in Australia

It’s been a long slog for the stars in the I’m A Celebrity jungle, but this weekend will see the first celebrity get the boot from the gruelling reality show.

Friends and family members of the famous campmates have been jetting into Australia to ensure that they are on hand if their loved one gets the chop.

The latest family member to arrive in Brisbane is Jon Hegerty, brother of The Chase star Anne Hegerty.

Jon, 55, recently retweeted a message of support for his sister from one of her colleagues from The Chase, Jenny Ryan.

"I hope everybody watching appreciates just how far @anne_Hegerty is going outside her comfort zone. I’m proud of her for being so incredibly brave and challenging herself," Jenny wrote.

Meanwhile, Anne’s Uncle Richard, 87, previously revealed that her family had been shocked by her decision to take herself out of her comfort zone.

"I know she will find it difficult, but we are all rooting for her," he told the Daily Mail from his home in Dorset.

"It is very much out of her comfort zone and to be honest I am surprised that she agreed to go on the show.

"We do wish her well, but given what I have heard it could all be a bit too much for her. It will be very hard and I think we have seen that already. I really do hope she will be okay."

Jon isn’t the first to land on Aussie soil, as Harry Redknapp’s beloved wife Sandra has already touched down in the country.

Sandra arrived at Brisbane Airport on Thursday with Harry’s granddaughter Molly and looked glamorous despite having just spent 15 hours in the air flying in from Dubai.

Speaking about Sandra, Harry previously told his campmates: “Even when I’m out I ring her 10 times a day.

“She’s my life. I’m a bit scared, getting a bit older. I love her too much, if anything happened it would just kill me.

“We just get on so well, I only want to be with her. I can never wait to see her. Jamie says: ‘you’ve won the lottery’.”
