After much anticipation, I’m A Celebrity 2021 is finally here!

Tonight, all the celebrities in the I’m A Celebrity 2021 line-up will enter Gwrych Castle, where I’m A Celebrity is filmed as they prepare to take on all the Bush Tucker Trials and challenges the show is famous for.

Before they can set up camp in the Welsh Castle, however, they’ll have to complete their first challenge, which usually involves the campmates meeting sometimes for the first time, as they try to work out how to get into what will be their home for the next few weeks – expect heights, creepy crawlies or confined spaces!

I’m a Celebrity 2021 recently revealed the terrifying first trial of the series. Titled Turrets of Terror, the trial will see the celebrities presented with a huge three-level structure, bookended by two turrets with a giant key on each side.

The public decided which celebrities they wanted to take part in the challenge, with Frankie Bridge and Richard Madeley the top choices.

Ant will announce the challenge, and Madeley and Bridge will be compete head-to-head in Turrets of Terror, each representing a team comprised of four of their fellow celebrities.

Madeley won’t might this too much, considering he’s already asked to be voted for all the trials. In an interview with RadioTimes.com and other press, he revealed: “I really hope I do get voted for the Trials. The thing about this programme is you mustn’t go into it if you take yourself remotely seriously. I don’t and I am thoroughly looking forward to being covered in god knows what! You have to be prepared for people to laugh and I see this as a bl**dy great romp of fun!”

The same can’t be said for Frankie, but she’s had lots of tips from her husband, former footballer Wayne Bridge, who took part on the ITV show back in 2016.

Earlier this week, Frankie revealed how husband Wayne helped her prepare for I’m A Celebrity, saying: “He tried to teach me how to light the fire because I’m useless,” she said. “We’ve got a fire here where I’ve been staying and it’s like a full time job honestly, the last few nights I’ve given up and just sat in my coat and my Uggs in the house because I can’t stay on top of it.”

As the series begins on ITV, join us right here for our live blog. We’ll be bringing you all the latest right from the castle!

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Former President Donald Trump’s super PAC is hosting its largest fundraiser to date this week.

The Make America Great Again, Again super PAC event on Thursday, Dec. 2, will be held at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. Sources in Trump world tell Fox News to expect some of the biggest GOP donors from across the country to attend the function.

The super PAC is steered by former Florida state Attorney General Pam Biondi, who defended the former president at his first Senate impeachment trial. But Trump’s adding to the group’s leadership. Ric Grenell and Matt Whitaker, who served as acting national intelligence director and acting attorney general during the Trump administration, respectively, are joining the super PAC’s board of directors.

2024 WATCH: PENCE HEADED NEXT MONTH TO FIRST PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY STATE

The beefing up of the former president’s super PAC follows his move to expand his staff at his Save America political action committee, which recently brought on board longtime Trump aide Lynne Patton in a political coalitions building role.

Thanks in part to an aggressive push of text messages, emails, campaign style events and even ads, Trump’s been a fundraising juggernaut this year. His three main fundraising operations, which include Save America, reported over $100 million cash on hand as of the end of July, which was the most recent filing period for the groups.

The brisk fundraising and the expansion of his political operations come as Trump continues to play a kingmaker’s role in GOP politics heading into the 2022 midterm elections and repeatedly flirts with making another White House run in 2024.

Former president polls Trump-Biden 2024 showdown

For the first time, Trump’s political operation commissioned a poll in a hypothetical 2024 matchup between the former president and President Biden.

The survey was conducted in five key battleground states where Biden edged Trump in last year’s election to win the White House. It suggests Trump leading Biden by single digits in Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania and by double digits in Michigan and Wisconsin.

TRUMP’S POLLSTER SAYS THE GOP’S COMPRISED OF THESE ‘FIVE TRIBES’

The survey was conducted by veteran Republican pollster Tony Fabrizio, who polled for Trump’s 2016 presidential election victory and his 2020 reelection defeat. Besides the top line numbers in the horse race, Fabrizio pointed to the “wide chasm that currently exists” between Trump’s recalled job approval and Biden’s currently job approval. He told Fox News Trump’s advantage “is staggering given we are only 10 months into Biden’s presidency.”

The poll, which appears to be another sign that Trump’s gearing up for another presidential bid, was first reported by Politico.

Biden’s 2024 ‘intention’

In the wake of plenty of speculation the past month on whether President Biden will run for reelection in 2024, White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters last week that “that’s his intention.”

Psaki’s comments seemed to confirm reports that the president has been telling advisers and staff that he plans to run for a second four-year term steering the country.

Biden, who turned 79 last weekend, made history last November when he became the oldest person ever elected president. If he campaigns for reelection in 2024 and wins, Biden would be 82 at his second inauguration and 86 at the end of his second term.

Asked in March at the first formal news conference of his presidency about his 2024 plans, Biden said, “My answer is yes. I plan on running for reelection. That’s my expectation.”

And Democratic sources tell Fox News the president repeated that message during a virtual fundraiser earlier this month.

A day ahead of his birthday, the president told reporters, “I feel great,” after undergoing the first of his annual physical exams at the Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

“Nothing has changed. We’re in good shape,” Biden said.

Bangalore: Bodies of two Covid-19 victims discovered in ESI hospital a year after death

Published

on

Bodies of two Covid-19 victims were located a year after their deaths in the mortuary of the ESI hospital in Bengaluru.

Rajajinagar police said the victims have been identified as Durga and Muniraju.

A senior police officer said the bodies were kept in the cold storage of the mortuary a year ago and a new mortuary building had started functioning in the meantime. “On Saturday, when the housekeeping staff went to clean the old mortuary, they sensed a foul smell and later discovered these two bodies,” he said.

The police have shifted the bodies to the Victoria hospital for autopsy and are trying to trace the family members of the deceased.

The police officer said the hospital staff told them that the family members of many victims hesitated in collecting the bodies. “These two bodies remained in the freezer as the hospital staff got busy dealing with too many Covid-19 cases in successive months,” the officer added.
He said the family members of the deceased will be traced by Monday and the bodies will be cremated after receiving their permission. “The two deaths might have occurred in October last year but we are awaiting confirmation from the hospital,” the officer said.
