Callum Hole is a loveable larrikin from Wales who first shot to fame on season four of Love Island Australia before going on to star on Love Island Games, and more recently I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! Australia.

WATCH NOW: Callum Hole freaks out over a ‘rat’ on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Australia.

At just 26 years of age, the Brisbane-based personal trainer turned reality television star has become incredibly popular with Australian audiences young and old. 

From his hilarious one-liners, charming Welsh accent, and curious conversations in front of the camera where he learns new things (such as the difference between continents and countries) – it’s safe to say Callum makes for comedy gold. 

And how could we forget his now viral reaction to a ‘rat’ in the I’m A Celeb confessional hut – brilliant stuff.

Before he entered the South African jungle to compete for his chosen charity Movember, it didn’t seem that the natural-born comic quite understood what he had signed up for. 

“All I know is I’m gonna be out in the jungle. And I gotta like get stars or something and get food, and if you don’t get stars you don’t really get fed,” he admitted to Channel Ten. 

In comparison to his two stints soaking up the sunshine in a romantic villa on Love Island in 2022 (where he was runner-up with ex-partner Maddie Wilcox) and in 2023 where he placed third (with Deb Chubb), I’m A Celeb is a vastly different reality television show.

From having hissing cockroaches and maggots dumped on him, to being run over by a giant bowling ball, to having “two tick brothers” embed themselves in his head and eating disgusting animal insides in bushtucker trials it is safe to say Callum has really been getting out of his comfort zone.

While Callum and Deb have remained relatively quiet about their romance post-Love Island, for any single fans out there who have fallen in love, we are sorry to report that they still seem to be dating.

After visiting her beau down under in early 2024, Deb has continued to support her long-distance boyfriend on social media, revealing that she had even purchased a VPN to watch Callum in his I’m A Celeb debut.

What convinced you to go on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here?

[I] wanted a new challenge to put myself out of my comfort zone! [Thought] I’d throw myself in the deep end.

Why did you choose the charity Movember?

It’s close to my heart as I’ve lost friends due to mental health issues. Most men are afraid to talk about how they actually feel. I want to normalise men speaking about their mental health without feeling like they are showing weakness.

What is the biggest misconception about you?

People are always quick to judge that I’m this party boy 24/7, but I do have a wholesome life and enjoy spending time with my close friends and family.

Tell us something about yourself that not many people know.

I have never camped before in my life and the only meal I can really cook that’s half decent is a bowl of oats.

What is your biggest strength?

Putting a smile on everyone’s face when times are tough when people may be struggling. I’ll always spread positivity and perk people up.

What is your biggest weakness?

[My] biggest weakness would be getting agitated when I’m hungry.
