Todays' top story! Michael Buerk surprises everyone (including himself) and heads for the Australian jungle to take part in this year's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here.
Michael admits it's time he did something completely different.
"I'm a frightful snob and perhaps it's time for me to take myself less seriously. I think it will be good fun. I am proud of what I have done. I like to think of myself as a serious journalist and for that, you have to suppress your personality - and rightly so! Who knows, am I going to be the life and soul of the party or the grumpy old bloke in the corner?!"
The first episode of the new series starts on Sunday 16th November at 9pm on ITV. Tune in then to see how Michael has coped with his first days in the jungle.Click here for Michael's pre-jungle interview
