Julia And Chris On New 'I'm A Celeb': 'Every Year We Like To Make It A Little Bit More Hardcore'
We caught up with the hilarious Julia Morris and Dr. Chris Brown at 10 Upfronts to find out what we can expect for next year's round of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'
Speaking on the red carpet, the cheeky twosome gave us all the goss on what to expect for the all-new season of 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
"I'm beside myself with excitement!" Julia told 10 daily adding, "Every year we like to make it a little bit more hardcore for our celebs, and now with the much shorter period of time it gives us a chance to dig a little deeper, go a little harder -- I don't like to use the expression 'foot on the throat' -- but metaphorically, that's what it'll be!"
She added, "It's not an easy experience!"
Dr Chris -- who was on the tail end of an electric shock last season (much to our amusement), agreed, adding, "We've found the formula, and if that involves a host being electrocuted, that seems to be what people want as well --- annoyingly!"
He continued, "We've worked out what goes well -- obviously ostrich anus -- that'll be back! But most people just love to see our celebrities well and truly shaken up and stirred, and we do that."
Correction -- we love seeing celebrities AND the hosts shaken up...
"When we signed on to the show we thought we were the puppetmasters, then all of a sudden the strings were attached to us as well!" Dr Chris laughed. "It's going to be a lot of fun".
As for who we can expect to see tough it out in the wilderness as we watch on from our comfy couches while scoffing a family block of chocky?
"From what I'm hearing around the celebrity names, we've got some fun ones!" he dished.
Discussing who his ultimate jungle dweller would be, Dr. Chris explained: "It's always people you imagine jungle life would be impossible for, and I think it's generally you want to know more about -- the people that present a certain side to themselves, so you want to see the intricacies to their character".
"Six weeks in the jungle is definitely the way to shake that up!"
He added, "Sportspeople always do well, but I like actors going in there because they're used to playing a character, and suddenly they have to play themselves."
We can't wait!
