Yep, it's finally officially .... Tennis badboy Bernard Tomic is set to enter the Jungle.

Tomic is in South Africa, ready to join the cast of Channel 10's 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here', which begins tonight. 

The 25-year-old who failed to qualify for the Australian Open earlier this month, says he isn't taking part of the show for the money, despite rumours he could earn up to $1 million. 

"It is not for the money. I am doing this because it is something I always wanted to do in my life," Tomic told News Corp. 

"This is reality, nothing can hide, this is 24 hour cameras and you are on your own and then the public can see who you really are.

"They (people) know me as this tennis player that is crazy and has done this or that or has problems.

"Hopefully I get the chance to change their image about me on this show and that is one of the reasons I’m doing it."

It was also revealed Tomic will be joined by retired AFL Premiership winner Josh Gibson in the South African jungle.
