If you’ve been struggling to believe that former Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale is joining I’m A Celebrity… here is the proof.
Even Ms Dugdale’s party colleagues were left wondering if the news she was taking part in the ITV show was a out-of-season April Fool, but these new photos show the former Dundee woman is in Oz and is ready to get up close to some of the country’s weird and wonderful wildlife — kangaroos included.

I’m A Celebrity started on Sunday, but Ms Dugdale’s is expected to make her first appearance on Wednesday.
Ms Dugdale’s decision to join the show has sparked huge controversy inside and outside the party, with accusations that she is abandoning her constituents to further her interests outside politics.
Sources have suggested Ms Dugdale will donate her MSP earnings for the time she is away to charity — but that has not prevented a storm of criticism.
Her partner, SNP MSP Jenny Gilruth, has revealed Ms Dugdale has been stung by the negative reaction.
