The two newest stars to enter the ‘I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!’ jungle have been confirmed: Adam Densten and Symon Lovett.
While many viewers may have watched the hilariously entertaining duo on ‘Gogglebox’, here’s a rundown of Adam and Symon’s rise to fame for those who aren’t as familiar with the couch critics.
Adam and Symon have been a regular fixture on Aussie television screens since 2015 when when they made their debut on ‘Gogglebox’ – a program that features TV enthusiasts providing commentary on their favourite shows as they watch them in their lounge rooms.
The duo were approached for casting five years ago while they were out at a pub, and their relatable quips and funny commentary made them fan favourites for 10 seasons until they quit the Foxtel production in 2019.
Before they were on TV, Adam and Symon were focused on their day jobs as physiotherapists. As their profiles began to rise, they admitted some life changes posed challenges to fit filming into their schedules.
“When we started in season one, I was living at home, we were both starting our final year of university and Adam was a single man,” Symon told New Idea magazine in 2017.
“Since that time, we’ve both graduated, gotten full-time jobs, both moved house (a couple of times), gotten new housemates, gotten new girlfriends.”
Speaking of how their newfound TV careers had changed things, Adam said at the time, ”[We] are slightly less poor, but still definitely resorting to cheese on toast for regular dinners”.
