AFL Icon Peter Daicos Ready to Kicks Goals on ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’

I'm a Celebrity 2024 Peter Daicos

 I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! — is back. This year’s cast features the hilarious Stephen K Amos, Big Brother’s Skye Wheatley, and the ironwoman Candice Warner. I’m a Celebrity’s 2024 cast also stars the AFL legend Peter Daicos.

On I’m a Celebrity, these stars, plus a few more, are fighting to survive in jungle-themed camping grounds. Not only do they have to compete in a series of wilderness-based challenges, they have to compete for Australia’s affection. Every so often, the public gets to vote off a contestant. The last celebrity left gets to give $100,000 to a charity of their choice. 

If this pressure cooker becomes too much for a celeb, they can quit at any time. All they have to say is, “I’m a celebrity, get me out of here.”

Does Peter have the resilience to survive this wild environment? Or will he be the first to leave? Here’s everything we know.
