I’m a Celebrity’s Is Will Young Likeable enough to be King of the Jungle?

Jungle fans went wild this weekend when the camp became a coffee shop with ample table space for everyone to hang out in. And although it sounds ridiculous, Snoochie Shy’s campmate Will Young impressed his celebrity peers by landing a table on a busstop.

Before he made a shocking entrance into the I’m a Celebrity jungle, Will told Digital Spy that he fell in love with the Australian desert because it didn’t “care if I was famous or not”. Now the singer is being discussed by the nation as the next jungle king.

So what makes him interesting?

He starred in Strictly Come Dancing in 2016. Despite impressing the judges throughout the series, he didn’t get a place in the top five. Instead, it was Aliona Vilani who earned the eighth place slot.

Will’s harsh judging seemed to have had an effect on other celebrities as couples pulled out of the competition. He was nominated by Anastacia and Brendan Cole, while Brian Conley was a finalist for the dancing duo.

We’ve got an idea of what he got up to on that dancing show! In the I’m a Celebrity jungle:

He wants to present for children’s television.

He claimed that his TV presenter career stalled when he fell from grace with the BBC.

He used to be Will Young – he’s Will Young, he’s an Aston Villa fan.


Will now goes by Snoochie Shy.

This is because Will is hoping to get into children’s television, and hence his name change.

He also currently works as a choreographer. And judging by his facial expressions on the reality show, it doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere soon!
