OLYMPIC hero Mo Farah is part of this year’s I’m A Celeb line-up – and is proving a popular member of the castle.
Farah said goodbye to the track in 2017 after four Olympic gold medals and six world championship wins, with wife Tania by his side.

Who is Mo Farah’s wife Tania?
Tania met the future Olympian when they were students at a west London university.
She keeps a low profile, but told The Telegraph she misses Mo when he’s training away from home.
She said: “It’s hard but it’s something that we’ve had to cope with since we first got together really.
“Mo was going away a lot from day one, so I had to get used to that pretty quickly.”

When did they get married?
The couple married in 2010, celebrating with a lavish wedding in Richmond.
Paula Radcliffe, Steve Cram and Jo Pavey were just some of the big names in attendance.
Due to Farah’s training, they used to live in their adopted home of Portland, Oregon.
Tania opened a “royal-theme”‘ luxury spa in Portland, named the British Manor Spa in May 2017.
But they have since moved back to London – and Mo will go into this year’s I’m A Celeb following a period of isolation.

An insider told The Sun: “Mo’s been a big fan of the show for years and was just waiting for the right time in his career to do it.
“He obviously has an excellent level of fitness and mental focus so will be great at the Bushtucker Trials and will be a positive addition for keeping up team morale for campmates – especially as a lot of the celebs are worried how cold it will be.
“It’s his first foray into reality TV so he’s a bit nervous about the challenges and will miss his family.”

How many children do they have?
The couple have a pair of twins – Aisha and Amani – born shortly after Farah’s twin triumph at London 2012, and a boy named Hussein in 2015.
Tania has another daughter named Rhianna.
Mo traditionally celebrates his victories trackside with step-daughter Rhianna and Tania.
Speaking at the time of the twins’ birth, Tania said: “It’s like a fairy tale. We couldn’t ask for anything more.”
