George Takei and Martina Navratilova hope to conquer the outback in “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!”

Gay icons George Takei and Martina Navratilova are the latest out celebrity victims participants in the UK reality competition I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! Find out who’ll they’ll be competing with after the break!

George and Martina will be joined by eight UK celebrities in the Australian outback for the latest edition of the Survivor clone. Most of the other “stars” are unknown to me, but a look at their profiles bodes well for one of the more whackadoodle seasons.

Brian Paddick

The other participants are:

“Charity campaigner and journalist Esther Rantzen; politician and television presenter Robert Kilroy-Silk; model and personal fitness trainer Carly Zucker; singer Simon Webbe, formerly of boy band Blue; actor Joe Swash; TV presenter Dani Behr; Brian Paddick, Ex-Deputy Assistant Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police, and glamour model Nicola McLean.”

Of those, the only two who are familiar to me are Dani Behr (because of the tabloid headlines she leaves in her wake) and Brian Paddick, the
gay ex-cop who ran for mayor of London.

We’re interested to hear our UK reader’s opinions of this “cast”. Does it have potential for watchable insanity, or would you rather gouge your eyes out than watch it?
