I’M A Celeb chiefs have hit the bullseye with their first signing for the new series — darts ace Eric “The Crafty Cockney” Bristow.

And he has bagged an estimated £60,000 to jet down under for the show.

Legendary player Eric was a charismatic face of the sport in the 1980s.

The cocky five-time world champion was also a regular on teatime quiz show Bullseye.

But he won’t be the lone Londoner in the jungle, as Birds of a Feather star Linda Robson is also set to take part.

Bird of a feather ... Linda Robson

Sources said the pair were picked as they were “game for a laugh”.

One added: “Eric and Linda are great fun and they can’t wait to get stuck into the jungle shenanigans. They know they’ll have to eat all sorts of horrible things but they’re up for the challenge.”

Linda, who starred as Tracey in the sitcom throughout the 90s, is no stranger to reality shows. She has already taken part in Celebrity Come Dine With Me, Famous and Frightened and Celebrity MasterChef.

Other names in the frame for this year’s show — due to hit screens in the first week of November — include former Corrie star Helen Flanagan and singer Grace Jones.

And bosses are even aiming to get former chick-lit author turned Tory MP Louise Mensch on board.

it's the lighter life diet that's done it!! (with Linda) 3 drinks a day, no food!!- a bit too drastic for me with my digestive probs.
Looking forward to Grace Jones, she's a weird one isn't she???
in another /her own world i reckon, should be interesting.
Glad to see they've got some older contestants, makes it more interesting viewing imo.
(at least for me!)
