He's about to head into the Australian jungle for the new series of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here.

But before donning his jungle gear, Myles Stephenson showed off his rippling muscles on Thursday as he took part in a beach photo shoot in Queensland ahead of the new season's first episode on Sunday. 

The Rak Su singer, 27, exposed his washboard abs as he posed with a surfboard among the waves.

The star's springy curls were kept short in his usual style as he showed in the snaps that his work in the gym has paid off. 

Myles wore a pair of turquoise swimming shorts as he posed with the confidence of a long-time model.

In one snap he looked back while clutching his surfboard and heading into the sea for a swim. 

In another, he sat back in the sand to soak up the Aussie sunshine.

The beaming Rak-Su star looked excited for his debut on the wildly popular show in Sunday's episode.   

He jetted out to the jungle last week after his place on this year's series was confirmed. 

He will be taking his place alongside a host of big names including reality TV personality Caitlyn Jenner, 70, former footballer Ian Wright, 56, and former Eastenders star Jacqueline Jossa.

Pop star Nadine Coyle, 34, former rugby player James Haskell, 35, DJ Adele Roberts, 40, Radio 1 presenter Roman Kemp, 26, and comedian Andrew Maxwell, 44, are also competing for the jungle crown.   

Of course, as the enduring ITV favourite – now entering its 19th series – is known for putting its contestants through a laundry list of gruelling Bushtucker Trials, the new stars have also shared their fears and phobias.

Unsurprisingly, spiders, snakes and creepy-crawlies sit atop that list, while others have admitted that the toughest struggle they anticipate enduring is being separated from their loved ones for potentially a full month.

This year's contestants may be met by an unwelcome guest upon their arrival, amid reports there is a 'chlamydia-carrying' koala bear who has moved into camp.
