The presenter repeatedly teased him during Match of the Day

Gary Lineker teased Ian Wright about his rumoured appearance on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! during Match of the Day on Saturday (November 2).

The 58-year-old presenter repeatedly hinted that Ian, 56, is poised to swap the show's TV studio for the Australian jungle, where he could be about to join the likes of Kate Garraway and Roman Kemp on the ITV programme.

During the football highlights show, Gary alluded to Ian "passing all the trials", seemingly in reference to I'm a Celebrity.

"My kids would love me to do it, I don't know what that says.

"Like really close friends say, 'Oh you'd be amazing, I really want you to do it.' And it's like, 'What have I done to you?' Does anybody want to go through that torture, I don't know?"

I'm A Celebrity... starts on Sunday November 17 on ITV.
