I'm A Celebrity bosses have DJ Locksmith on reserve in case any of the contestants drop out of the ITV reality show.
Richard Madeley, Simon Gregson and Arlene Phillips are among the contestants getting ready to enter the castle in North Wales for three weeks of bushtucker trials, cold nights and testing conditions.

Instead, they will act as a back up in case someone else drops out of the show.

It appears he is still having to go through the isolation period in Wales before the big launch.
In fact, DJ Locksmith – whose real name is Leon Rolle – appears to have given fans a sneak peek into his isolation accommodation.
In a number of Instagram stories, Locksmith can be seen entertaining himself in a cottage-style brick home, where he wears a cowboy hat very similar to the one worn by contestants on the show.
In a Q&A on the social media platform, someone asked him if he was in isolation for I'm A Celebrity, to which he responded: "Nope! Just trying to find myself!"
Last year, a reserve celebrity had to enter the castle when Naughty Boy was forced to pull out of the 2020 show before the launch day.
Naughty Boy is back this year for the show, which he is believed to be isolating for now.
