'Who is Annabel Giles?' we mused aloud upon discovering she was the latest star to join I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!.

The former model will enter the jungle along with Strictly Come Dancing star Vincent Simone tomorrow (November 22).

So as we anticipate Giles's arrival on the show, we find out more about the star with 9 fun facts - with some forgotten photographs and quality '90s TV reminiscing.

She appeared on You Bet!

Remember the show where a panel of celebrities bet on whether members of the public could successfully complete difficult and often dangerous challenges against the clock? Well, Giles took part in the show back in 1992 along with Olympic athlete Kriss Akabusi (whatever happened to him?!), Judi Spiers, Andrew O'Connor and then-host Matthew Kelly.

Alan Partridge: 10 things about Steve Coogan's comedy character

6 August 2013 3:02 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Aha! Steve Coogan's comic creation Alan Partridge has finally bounced back, cementing his Lazarus-like comeback with a best-selling autobiography, Sky Atlantic's Mid Morning Matters and the eagerly-awaited movie Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa.

To celebrate the return of one of Norfolk's North Norfolk's finest broadcasters we pick out 10 things you need to know about Alan Partridge.

1. Alan Gordon Partridge was born in 1955 to Dorothy Partridge at King's Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital. His arrival coincided with Anthony Eden being named Prime Minister and Chelsea securing the First Division title. Alan spent much of his childhood in Norwich, but freely admits to experiencing difficulties with his emotionally distant father. He was also the victim of school bullying by classmates, who frequently taunted him with cries of "Smelly Alan Fartridge".

2. Alan began his media career DJing on hospital radio before winning a job as a sports reporter for the BBC's current affairs programme The Day Today. »

Mr Chips is back! The cheeky snake-charming, animated golden robot is back on primetime TV for the first time in over a decade this weekend, as ITV revives the classic gameshow Catchphrase.
