As an elite athlete Hollie Arnold may be pretty tough when it comes to training for the Paralympics, but even she’s a little nervous about the cold and spiders in Wales.
The Paralympian, who signed up after this year’s show after the Tokyo games were postponed until 2021, is swapping her beautiful home in Shepshed, where she lives with her cat Milo and gorgeous new puppy Honey for Gwrych Castle.
Hollie, 26, who hails from Grimsby, and won gold at the 2016 Paralympics for javelin in Rio and has broken two world records, is still excited to be joining the show.
Of her involvement, Hollie said: “Yes I have a missing arm and I am in the Paralympics but I want to show people nothing stops me and it shouldn’t stop anyone else either.
“People might see me as someone who wins medals in sport and I just hope I can use my independence and the pressures I go through with athletics in the camp and the trials.”
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! returns to screens on 15 November with the camp relocated from the Australian jungle to the freezing Welsh castle… So let’s take a look inside the cosy home Hollie will be leaving behind!

Hollie Arnold picked up the keys to her first home back in 2018 marking the occasion on Instagram standing outside her home holding a bunch of flowers.
Hollie looked incredible as she posed in her farmhouse style kitchen wearing a leopard print dress as she celebrated her first New Year’s Eve in her home last year.
In her living room Hollie has kept things simple with a light grey couch and accents of turquoise via her cushions, wooden floors and an off-white colour for the walls.
The Paralympian has shown off her impressive interior decor skills by hanging up rows of faux roses on her bedroom wall which is painted in a peach shade. Elsewhere in her room there’s a letter ‘H’ ornament and a hexagon shaped mirror leaning on the floor in the perfect spot for selfies.
It’s clear Hollie is a big fan of hair scrunchies as she’s created a clever rainbow display of her collection which adorns her bedroom wall!
For Christmas in her home Hollie favours the traditional red and gold decorations for her Christmas tree with plenty of glitz and glam.
It looks like Hollie is pretty good in the kitchen and is a fan of Joe Wicks, with the book standing pride of place in her stylish kitchen.
Hollie is lucky enough to have a decent sized back garden attached to her home which no doubt helped during lockdown over the summer months.
The sports star, who signed up for I’m A Celeb when the Tokyo Paralympics were postponed, also has a garden shed to store her javelin.
