Stanley Johnson, author of our political thriller Kompromat, ventured into the Australian jungle last weekend to take part in the reality TV show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!. 

Over the next few weeks Stanley will compete in 'bushtucker trials' and most likely be subjected to numerous grizzly tasks involving insects, reptiles and jungle delicacies in order to earn food for his fellow campmates. The celebrities are pitched against each other and will be battling it out in the hope of being crowned King or Queen of the jungle when the show ends.

Kompromat, released earlier this year, is a satirical thriller that tells a possible account of the seismic and unexpected political events on both sides of the Atlantic in 2016. The Sunday Times called it 'Brilliant'. We're wondering if he's sneaked a few copies into the jungle for some bedtime reading for his fellow campmates?
