Paulini Curuenavuli, who rose to fame on the 2003 season of Australian Idol and went on to star in pop group Young Divas, was one of the first to be introduced. 

She wasn’t the only one from a talent show to have entered the jungle, with Jack Vidgen of Australia’s Got Talent and The Voice fame to have signed on. 

Former Bachelor star Abbie Chatfield debuted later on in the episode, and certainly made her presence felt as she openly talked about cosmetic procedures and dating.

Other stars who entered the jungle on Sunday’s episode were comedians Ash Williams and Mel Buttle, and former AFL star Travis Varcoe. 

Channel Ten will introduce other celebrity intruders to viewers throughout the week. 

Casting for the 2021 season was not taken lightly, with executive producer Alex Mavroidakis having told the TV Reload podcast on Friday that ‘up to 70 names’ were seriously considered to star.

Alex, who interviewed this year’s cast via Zoom from his Gold Coast home, said ‘it’s not an exaggeration’ to say they had ’60 to 70 names seriously in the mix’.  

In terms of what makes a great star lineup, he explained: ‘We’ve got to check off diversity, we’ve got to check off fame, we’ve got to check off funny, we’ve got to check off headlines.’ 

Alex went on to say, that while it may sound like a cliché, they’ve got to have that ‘x-factor’.
