From politicians to soap stars, anybody who’s anybody – and some who aren’t – have been linked to the reality show…
Here’s some of the rumoured celebs who have been getting the rumour mill turning so far…
The Made In Chelsea star went down well on ITV2’s I’m a Celeb spin-off show Extra Camp last year and has a youth-skewed online following, which has apparently piqued ITV’s interest – plus he’s mates with the reigning Queen of the Jungle who must be able to put in a good word for him, right?
A TV source reportedly told The Sun: “Jamie has been telling friends he is in talks to do it, which is long overdue after his stints on the ITV2 show.
“Producers love that he has got a TV following and online fans with his own YouTube channel, as they are trying to snap up a younger audience.
“He’s a cheeky chappie and no doubt the public will fall in love with him like they did Toff.”
If all goes according to plan, a reporting job on This Morning may not be far away…
Holby City actress Rosie Marcel – who plays Jac Naylor in the BBC drama – was recently asked whether she would want to appear on I’m a Celebrity.
“I’ve had a couple of meetings. I have spoken to them, it is something I would love to do actually,” she said. “I think for me it would be an amazing challenge.”
You heard it here first!
Former Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers told The Sun that he would “love to do the jungle”.
However, there is just one problem “I’m petrified of spiders,” he said. “There was one in the house the other day and I just ran away.”
Sounds like a perfect booking to us!
After it was revealed that Brendan Cole would not be appearing in Strictly Come Dancing this year, he was rumoured for an I’m a Celebrity appearance.
After leaving Corrie, Catherine Tyldesley was rumoured for Strictly Come Dancing. However, she denied the whispers and instead she’s now been tipped to head into the jungle.
Well, that is according to bookmaker Coral who said: “Rumours over her next career move went into overdrive after she spoke about her relatives in Australia and her desire to spend some time there, and we think it’s all building up to a perfect match with a stint in the jungle.”
Katie McGlynn, Shayne Ward or Faye Brooks
There’s usually a Coronation Street star or two who goes into the I’m a Celebrity jungle every year, and ahead of this series, tabloid reports are suggesting that not two but THREE of the soap’s big names are vying for a place in the line-up.
According to The Sun, a source said that following Jennie McAlpine‘s appearance on the show last year, “Faye, Shayne and Katie are all eager to follow in her place.
“But TV bosses will only take on one Corrie cast member and, so far, they have a tough decision on their hands.”
