According to a report from the Daily Mail, two of the new contestants knew each other prior to going on the show.
Charity CEO and former footballer Jake Edwards, 32, and Perth musician Booka Nile, 31, apparently "have a long history" together and have even worked with each other on the singer's music project, Sonic Minds.
The pair got to know each other after Sonic Minds teamed up with Jake's sports-centred mental health charity, Outside the Locker Room, back in 2018.
In fact, Booka seems to have a lot of industry ties. In May last year, the singer appeared on an episode of Outside the Locker Room with recent I'm A Celeb star Robert 'Dipper' DiPerdomenico where Jake introduced the 31-year-old as a "longtime friend".
While Jake and Booka are clearly very close, the controversial experts did not pair them together. Indeed, the charity CEO will be partnered with other Perthie, 27-year-old Rebecca Zemek, while musician Booka will be tying the knot with 31-year-old electrician Brett from Victoria.
