Seann Walsh arriving in the jungle alongside Matt Hancock is the "perfect entrance" for the comedian, claims an expert.
The 36-year-old will be making his I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here debut during tonight's show and made it clear in his VT that he hopes his stint will help change the public's opinion of him following his infamous kiss scandal.
While competing on Strictly Come Dancing in 2018, photos emerged of Seann kissing his professional dance partner Katya Jones, who at the time was married to fellow pro Neil Jones.

The backlash from the incident has followed him up until now, but expert Carla Speight believes entering camp with the Conservative MP is perfect because his kiss scandal was "considerably worse" than Seann's.
The former Health Secretary was caught kissing Gina Colangelo during the the Covid pandemic – while millions were told not to mix with other households.
Carla, who has worked as a PR, Agent and photographer in comedy for over 10 years, exclusively told Daily Star: "The backlash Seann faced was huge and I think this is a great opportunity for him to rise like a Phoenix from the ashes.
"Also it’s a perfect entrance for him to go in alongside Matt as frankly, Matt’s kiss scandal was considerably worse than Seann’s!"
Carla believes Seann's "love rat" status will change after his stint on the hit ITV show as she thinks "his comedic talent will shine through" and he will contribute to "boosting morale" in camp.
The expert also compared Seann's kiss to controversies surrounding other campmates, including claims Boy George handcuffed a male escort to a wall who he then proceeded to "chain" and "whip" back in 2009.
Carla explained: "Also the controversy surrounding his kiss is considerably less villainous that Matt Hancock’s kiss, plus Boy George’s past criminal history will also work to remind the public that the media frenzy was essentially over a drunken snog and the reality is, he’s not that bad of a guy, especially when you look at the cast’s past history."
She went on to say that Seann's I'm A Celeb appearance could push him "back up to the height of his career, if not higher" if he gets to show the nation who he really is.
"It’s been four years and it’s about time we get to see the real Seann and let him move on from Strictly," she added.
