Bright is concerned for his old strike partner down and roommate under!

This year's 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!' lineup has been announced, and football fans are delighted to see Arsenal and England legend Ian Wright heading into the jungle.

The Match of the Day pundit is sure to prove great value on the small screen - but not everyone is confident of his chances on the show.

Speaking to Love Sport Radio, Wright's former Crystal Palace strike partner Mark Bright said Wrighty will HATE the Bushtucker Trials!

"He's in there! I can tell you, I've roomed with this guy for five years and I do not know why he's going in there".

"He is scared of the dark, he's scared of snakes, he's scared of creepy crawlies - he's scared of his own shadow!"

"He'd always go 'no, Brighty, don't turn the light off!' I'm telling for you now, vote for him to do the tasks. Vote for him!"

But Bright pointed out that it might not be plain sailing for Wrighty in the jungle.

"He's funny, but he's got a temper like we all do. He'll expect people to do their jobs, he'll want things to be tidy, and he has high standards".

"He's very particular about his food - his mum did all his cooking growing up and he only goes to the best restaurants these days, so I think he could be in for a shock".

"He will be great value".
