Jill was seen touching down in Brisbane ahead of the show’s return

England Lioness Jill Scott has been revealed at the fifth star to  join I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!

The 35-year-old,  who retired in August following her team’s historic victory at the European Championship, was seen touching down in Brisbane to being a week-long quarantine ahead of the show’s return on November 6, MailOnline reports.

The other four celebs already confirmed are DJ Chris Moyles, Coronation Street star Sue Cleaver, Hollyoaks’ Owen Warner and Love Island’s Olivia Attwood.

It is the first time the show is returning down under since 2019.

The Lionesses made history this summer when they were the first English side to win a major trophy since the Three Lions won the World Cup in 1966.

Jill’s arrival comes after Owen Warner was the fourth campmate confirmed to be heading into the jungle.

The 23-year-old Hollyoaks star, known for playing Romeo Nightingale in the soap, arrived at Brisbane airport on Wednesday.

The new series of the ITV show has been pushed forward due to the Qatar World Cup, which will start on November 20, The Sun reports.

Attwood is the first ex-Love Islander to appear on the show, as ITV bosses had steered clear of letting the dating show stars join the extreme reality series.

Attwood was one of the biggest stars to emerge from Love Island, after pairing up with 29-year-old Chris Hughes in 2017. She then went on to feature in ITVBe’s Towie and carve out a career as an influencer.
