Age: 69

Best known for: Playing the timelord between 1984 and 1986

Career high: His stint behind the controls of the Tardis

Love life: Married

Jungle phobias: "Heights, standing at the edge of a cliff rather than jumping out of planes. Not too fond of spiders either."

Missing any special occasion in the jungle? "Half of the rehearsals for my role as Nanny Nelly in pantomime at Bournemouth."

What he will miss most: His family

Words of wisdom: "I am a tad competitive and if I do anything, I always want to win. But I wouldn't want to ever give myself an advantage over others. I would want to win it fair and square. It would be lovely if viewers thought I was alright and a good camper."

As the oldest member, Colin also hopes he will be able to bring some wisdom to the camp.

"I want to be kind to the people who are having a tough time," he explains.
