Noel Edmonds may be heading to the I'm A Celebrity jungle as a "secret" campmate, joining the show as a surprise late addition.


The Deal or No Deal host has long been rumoured as a potential signing for 2018, but the 69-year-old is now locked down and set for a trip to Australia, according to tabloid reports.

Both The Sun and The Mirror have published reports suggesting that the presenter has agreed to appear in ITV's latest series of I'm A Celebrity, although Edmonds has not appeared in any of the show's pre-launch materials so far.

The ten celebrities already confirmed include football manager Harry Redknapp, Coronation Street star Sair Khan and Doctor Who star John Barrowman – but the name Noel Edmonds is currently not among them.

That could change however, with reports suggesting that he could be a secret or late addition to the 2018 series.

There have been reports that the TV personality has cost the channel more than £500,000, one of the largest fees the series has ever paid – although this is unconfirmed.

Radio Times has reached out to ITV for comment.
