I’m a Celebrity made an epic blunder as ITV left red-faced over a major mistake in naming the jungle star

ITV was left red-faced after making a huge mistake in the I’m A Celebrity promotional video to reveal the latest Jungle cast.

The ten faces heading down under have finally been confirmed by ITV after The Sun exclusively revealed the line-up last week.

However, the broadcaster has already made a serious mistake when it comes to Hollyoaks actor Nick Pickard.

In the trailer unveiling the new stars, ITV misspelled Nick’s last name.

When he introduced himself to the show’s fans, the subtitle incorrectly read: “Hello, I’m Nick Picard.”

The broadcaster had overlooked the letter K in the soap icon’s name.

Despite the mistake, fans were thrilled at the lineup reveal as they shared their excitement under the social media post.

One wrote: “It’s going to be a great season!”

Another added: “Looking forward to it! I can’t wait and wish them all the best of luck.”

Nick, 46, will put his nerves to the test in the Australian jungle after signing up for this year’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!

But as the actor prepares to face off against tanks full of snakes and chalices full of animal innards, he reveals a major change in his life.

Speaking to ITV ahead of the show’s launch at the weekend, Nick revealed he had given up alcohol to get in shape for the show.

He said: “I haven’t had a drink for five weeks. I took part in the Stop Drinking Challenge in October anyway and have stuck with it ever since.”

Nick also spoke about how “difficult” it was to keep the news that he would be on I’m A Celebrity from his family.

He added: “It’s been so hard keeping it a secret and although she will be angry, I haven’t told her, but I know she will be happy too.

“I hope I can make them proud. My girlfriend is excited too, it’s the longest we’ve been apart and it’s going to be hard.”
