I’m A Celebrity: Could this be the most CONTROVERSIAL campmate ever?

He would certainly bring a punchy attitude to the ITV show

The arguments in the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! camp might get a little tasty this year.

The ITV jungle show has seen some fiery bust-ups in the past but there could be punches thrown if producers get their man.

Disgraced boxer Tyson Fury has been targeted to make an explosive entrance into the Ant and Dec presented show.

Following the cancellation of Tyson’s world title rematch fight with Wladimir Klitschko, I’m A Celebrity bosses are keen to offer him big bucks to go down under.

Tyson is currently blowing up a storm after allegedly testing positive for cocaine, which could see him stripped of his WBA and WBO titles.

Sources close to the boxer think that this could be the high profile boost that his career needs.

What we know for sure, is that if this comes true he could potentially be the most controversial camp mate ever.

The claim to this ‘accolade’ could be pushed by another that ITV want for the series.

Tyson could be joined by disgraced Michael Jackson doctor, Conrad Murray.

What’s more, he could be prescribed with a whopping £230,000 pay packet for doing so.

It had been previously reported that the 63-year-old had look to receive a cool £200k but he now wants more, due to his “medical skills.”

Speaking to the Daily Star, a source said: “Murray is trying to pull out all the stops to get more money.

“He thinks that ITV can help solve his finance issues.

“And the doctor idea is one of the ways that he feels that they can bolster his money.

“Murray has also promised that he will reveal secrets about Jackson to help make the show ‘explosive’ and gain headlines worldwide.”

Well, he is certainly well placed to speak about what happened behind closed doors in the King of Pop’s house.

The disgraced physician gained notoriety after Michael Jackson’s death in 2009.

He was eventually banned from practising medicine and convicted of manslaughter for his role in Jacko’s passing.

Conrad has always pleaded his innocence: “I was an innocent man unjustly accused and then incarcerated.”

There have been claims that Michael Jackson’s son Prince had written to ITV, asking for Conrad to not appear.

It seems though that he may get his wish.

An ITV spokesman said: “We have never approached this man to be a contestant on I’m A Celebrity.”
