I’m a Celeb Get Me Hired

Transition from “I’m a Celeb, Get Me Out Of Here” to “I’m a spokesperson, please hire me”…

Harry Redknapp:

  • Perfect for all things football related. After all, he was a manager and player for almost half a century.
  • Anything to do with children or grandchildren. He admitted on the show they were the main reason for entering the jungle.
  • Marriage and family life. Harry and his wife Sandra have been married since 1967.

Emily Atack:

Best known for her role as Charlotte in Channel 4 sit com, Inbetweeners.

  • Emily would be a great spokesperson for any campaigns to do with body image. She’s spoke a lot in camp about her body, the pressures beauty magazines put on young women, models being problems young women face in the world of beauty magazines and photoshop.
  • She’s funny and articulate so could speak on other “lifestyle” topics, as long as she has a genuine interest in them. (Broadcasters soon detect if a paid ambassador is only there for the money!)

John Barrowman:

Actor best known for his work on shows ‘Doctor Who’ and ‘Torchwood’.

  • John and his husband Scott Gill have been married since 2013. John has always been prominent gay rights advocate, previously working for Stonewall, a gay rights organisation in the UK.
  • Like Emily, he’s a born entertainer and that’s what broadcast is all about. He’d be great for a chat on a radio day.
