The Chase‘s very own governess Anne Hegerty has joined the UK cast of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, according to British reports.

Filming is set to begin in Murwillumbah, northern New South Wales, imminently.

The Sun reports she joins other Brits including ex-Eastenders actor Rita Simons, Coronation Street’s Sair Khan, Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer, ex-footballer Harry Redknapp, The Vamps star James McVey, X Factor runner-up Fleur East, The Inbetweeners‘ Emily Atack, TV host Nick Knowles.

I’m A Celebrity UK will be presented by Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby after Ant McPartlin pulled out following his drink-drive crash and rehab stint.

Both I’m A Celebrity and The Chase are produced by ITV.


  1. They interviewed Anne in one of the magazines a while back, and when out of the Governess persona, she sounds like a lot of fun. I think they have made a good choice.

  2. Anne should make the jungle very interesting for the Poms. Interestingly I was watching an interview Mark (the beast) did on UK talk show saying that he was ready to do the Aussie version of Dancing with the Stars but they canned it. He was very disappointed. I would have loved to see that one!

  3. Actually, the actress from Coronation Street is Sair Khan. Her character name is Alya Nazir. #corrienerd. Should be interesting seeing the Governess on this show, if only for a chance to see her out of her business attire!
