The I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! camp gained two new campmates on Wednesday's episode.

But prior to their arrival, original camp members Vernon Kay and Shane Richie said they were worried about how the new additions could change the dynamic of the all-star group.

TV presenter Vernon, 46, and soap actor Shane, 56, shared their concerns over having "mixed emotions" ahead of new faces Russell Watson and Ruthie Henshall, both 53, settling into camp.

Vernon was first to speak about his concerns, as he told: "I've got mixed emotions at the moment. It moves the dimensions. It moves the dynamics about slightly. I would be genuinely upset if this dynamic changes."

Later on in the instalment, Shane spoke on his thoughts as he shared: "'There's 10 of us now, we've been together four days. We know each other really well. We're eating, sleeping, laughing, crying together…

"And for another two people to come in, you're always frightened. It's going to change the dynamics and we were kind of concerned about that."

The duo appeared to quickly forget any issues and greeted Ruthi and Russell with open arms when they arrived at Gwrych Castle just three days into this series.

Ruthi said of the warm welcome: "As soon as Russell and I walked in, the welcome was just. it was wonderful, it was fantastic."

"There are so many different people from different walks of life that it's like a smorgasbord of fabulous people.

"It's like going back to school. I've been camping once, I lasted a day, then I skedaddled out of there."

The pair took part in a trial called Stage Fright before they meet the rest of their campmates and they were a big hit as they managed to get 11 meals for camp.
