I’m A Celebrity 2017: Who is Denis Wise? Ex-Chelsea footballer pictures, age and facts

Who is I’m A Celebrity 2017 contestant Dennis Wise?

Dennis Wise is a former Chelsea and England footballer with a career spanning over 20 years in the beautiful game.

The 50-year-old was one of the most successful Chelsea captains in the club’s history and also has 21 caps playing for England.

ITV producers are hoping that Dennis will be outspoken in the camp this year.  

Sportsman Dennis is married to wife Claire with whom he tied the knot in 2004 and the couple have two children Henry and Amber.


Speaking about taking part in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, he said: “I am both excited and apprehensive, I really am. 

“My fear is being in a coffin. I am a bit claustrophobic. When I go in a coffin when my time is up, I don’t want to know. Going in beforehand doesn’t really appeal to me!”

Asked whether he was in it to win it, Dennis explained: “I am very competitive and I do like to win. I don’t like to lose. I try to give 110 per cent to everything. I don’t like people who give up straight away.” 

Dennis continued: “To win the Jungle? It would be lovely but I am not sure I am going to be the winner of this show. I’ve upset too many football supporters over the years. But maybe Chelsea fans will vote for me.” 


Who are the I’m A Celebrity 2017 contestants?

Dennis is one of 10 contestants in this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! line-up. 

The other names on the list include: Jennie McAlpine, Vanessa White, Rebekah Vardy, Jack Maynard, Amir Khan, Stanley Johnson, Jamie Lomas, Shappi Khorsandi and Georgia “Toff” Toffolo.

It is likely that more names could be added into the mix either before the stars enter the jungle camp or during the show itself. 

Some of the wildcards include TOWIE favourite Lauren Goodger with odds of 5/21 and Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby at 9/4, according the bookmakers Betfair.
