Former Tottenham Hotspur forward David Ginola has been confirmed as a participant in this year’s edition of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here. 

The 54-year-old Frenchman, who now works as a football pundit, will join the star-studded cast taking part in the reality survival show held at Gwrych Castle in Wales. 

He has been announced alongside the likes of television presenter Richard Madely, pop singer Frankie Bridge and choreographer and ex-Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips. 

Speaking ahead of his plunge into the show, Ginola said (via the Independent): “It is starting to sink in now that I am doing I’m A Celebrity. When I got offered the chance to do the programme, I thought ‘why not’.

“It’s going to be a great experience and it’s the chance to spend three weeks in the Castle doing things you have never done in your life.”

Before his move to England, Ginola enjoyed a stellar stint with Paris Saint-Germain in which he won the French league, the Coupe de la Ligue and two Coupe de France crowns. 

He then secured a transfer to Newcastle, before making the move to Spurs after two seasons. He spent three years at Spurs and made 116 appearances between 1997 and 2000 and won the League Cup in the 1998/99 campaign. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

It should be interesting to see how Ginola does in the castle as he is one of the bigger names announced in the official line-up. He does seem to have a good and entertaining personality, which should allow him to get on with his campmates.
