    Ok, in my eyes is a celebrity is someone who at the very least is recognisable able to people in another country to the one they spend most of their time in. So... How many none UK people know these names?

    Antony Costa
    David ‘The Duke’ Dickinson
    Jenny Frost
    Jimmy Osmond
    Sheree Murphy
    Sid Owen
    Kimberley Davies
    Jilly Goolden
    Elaine Lordan
    Carol Thatcher


    They're the new contestants on I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here. And for those who don't know what that is... Pick a bunch of has-beens, chuck them in a part of the Australian jungle which you've fiddled with to make it look like it's really the out-back when it's really a studio now, pay them lots of money and watch the money roll in. Oh, and afterwards about half of them will pop up on TV in an effort to resurrect their shattered and pointless careers, spend all day talking about how they ate a spider whilst swimming in radio-controlled crocodile infested waters and then fall flat on their arse never to be seen again. Until they pop up a couple of series later complain how the show "isn't like it used to be".

    Never heard of any of them either! :-(

    Do you know where they're filming? Maybe I could run through the set one day and become a 'real' celebrity on their stupid show. :mrgreen:

    I feel the pain as well. Broadcast media is currently in the toilet. I say kill your television!

    Somehow I know that (at least in america) films are our only saving grace. Biographies are going to hit with "Capote", "I Walk the Line" and "Good Bye and Good Night" or what ever the Edward R. Murrow movie is called.

    Aside from the fact one is Australian, (so I guess I must know who she is) I don't know who most of them are and I'm in the UK.
