Katya Jones tipped for I’m A Celebrity after Strictly exit

Could she be heading Down Under?

Strictly Come Dancing pro Katya Jones has become one of the latest celebrities rumoured to be doing I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! this year.

The dancer, 29, was eliminated from the dancing competition last weekend alongside comedian Seann Walsh, who recently denied he’s heading into the jungle.

And now that her Strictly journey has come to an end, she could be heading Down Under for a stint in the jungle as she’s been tipped by bookies Ladbrokes to be heading to Oz.

According to Metro, Ladbrokes have placed Katya’s odds of doing the show at 4/1.

Alex Apati from Ladbrokes told the publication: “Seann may have ruled himself out of a stint Down Under but the latest betting suggests Katya could be jungle-bound.”

ED! has contacted representatives for Katya and I’m A Celebrity for comment.

A rep for I’m A Celebrity previously told us: “Any names suggested for I’m A Celebrity at this stage are just speculation.”

It comes just days after her Strictly partner Seann was tipped for the show.

Ladbrokes placed Seann’s odds of doing the show at 5/1.

However, a representative for Seann told us: “Pure speculation. He isn’t doing I’m A Celeb.”

Last weekend, Seann and Katya became the fifth couple to be sent home from this year’s series of Strictly following a dance-off with cricket star Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse.

They had found themselves at the centre of controversy last month after they were pictured kissing in the street after a night out.

The pair both issued apologies, calling the kiss a “mistake”.

Seann was subsequently dumped by his girlfriend and Katya was forced to defend her marriage to husband Neil, saying they are “very happy together” and the kiss was not a reflection on her marriage.
