The lineup includes the X-Factor’s out gay choreographer Brian Friedman, who earlier this year announced plans to marry his partner Daniel Brown.

Another contestant in the jungle will be Lady Colin Campbell, a royal biographer.

Lady Campbell, 66, wrote controversial royal biographies such as ‘Diana in Private: The Princess Nobody Knows’.

Raised as male until her late teens, she was hospitalised and given male hormones.

In a 2013 interview, she said: “Our family was extremely well known and he would have done anything to avoid publicity and embarrassment.

“I remember walking with him from the owners’ and stewards’ car park upstairs to our box at the racecourse.”

She went on: “People were staring, because my situation was sufficiently well known, and although I wore trousers it was very clear I was not a boy. You could see to him it was the worst ordeal of his life.

“The only way out he could conceive was that I should commit suicide. He told me: ‘The one solution to your problem is a dose of rat poison’.”

She previously sued newspapers for implying that she was “a transvestite” or transgender after . Of the implications, she said: “It was awful. It is offensive beyond belief. It was rape.”
