OK! are linking the 22-year-old Corrie star to the jungle and swapping the soap’s cobbled streets for bug-filled sheets. When asked about the possibility of going on the show, she said: “"I like to challenge myself and that's the most challenging show you can do."

We wonder how many Bush Tucker trial votes the Platt brat will get from Gail alone.

Olivia Attwood

A return to the public eye for the former Love Island contestant seems almost inevitable. The fiery reality star is never far from social media attention and would almost certainly relish the chance to stir up trouble in the jungle.

Heart Radio suggest that ITV bosses are hoping Attwood will “spice up the show”.

Nigel Farage

He couldn’t, could he? Well, The Express think so. In what would surely be the coup de grâce for the ITV show, Brexit’s champion would inevitably attract most of the attention on the show – how he’d cope is something we’d all love to see. Oh, and it'll be a challenge alone for him to survive a night with Danny Dyer after that Brexit rant.

What the 2014 Times Briton of the year would stand to gain from entering is a little perplexing, but who wouldn’t like to see him chow down on a kangaroo scrotum? With Farage in the camp, things would be sure to get testy.

Christine McGuinness

As a mum of three and wife to Paddy McGuinness, it’s understandable why the Real Housewives of Cheshire star might be tempted by the jungle: a bit of peace of quiet.

Having recently branched out into reality TV, McGuinness seems determined to get out of her husband’s shadow. And this is one way to do it.

Chloe Madeley

The fitness fanatic and daughter of Richard and Judy Madeley has been hotly tipped to join the jungle, and was tipped by bookies as 2/1 to star in the 2018 series.


The 30-year-old has appeared on Pointless Celebrities, alongside her famous dad, and has starred in a variety of shows including Big Brother's Big Mouth, Dancing on Ice and Channel 4's The Jump
