I’m A Celebrity star Camilla Dallerup to sleep rough in Hatfield

THERE’s just weeks to go before the YMCA’s Sleep Easy event, when around 100 people will sleep under the stars to raise money and awareness for homelessness.

But it seems the event, being held outside the Galleria in Hatfield on January 30, will now have a few stars on the ground as well.

For Central Herts YMCA has signed up none other than Strictly Come Dancing star Camilla Dallerup as its latest recruit to the event.

She won the BBC dance competition in 2008 as partner of Holby City actor Tom Chambers – the pair beating WGC model and presenter Lisa Snowdon in the show’s final.

Camilla, 35, will be joined by her fiance, Hollyoaks actor Kevin Sacre, who plays Jake Dean, for the all night sleep out.

She is, of course, no stranger to spending the night outdoors.

The professional dancer took part in last year’s I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, but left the show after five days suffering with exhaustion.
