Corrie star joining I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

She's swapping the cobbles for a jungle clearing

There's going to be a familiar face in the Australian jungle from the world of soaps this year.

Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent is apparently heading down under to join the I’m A Celebrity spin-off show.

The 24-year-old, who plays Sophie Webster in the ITV soap, is joining ITV2’s I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp presenters Joe Swash, Stacey Solomon, Chris Ramsey and Vicky Pattison, as a guest on the show.

Brooke is currently on a break from Corrie, so that she could perform on stage at the Lowry Theatre in Manchester.

She is due to return to duty in Weatherfield but before that, she's going to jet across the world to pass comment on the jungle antics.

An insider told The Mirror: “She’s only going to be in Australia for a week but it’ll be a lot of fun.

“She’s very chatty and show bosses think she’ll be a great asset to the spin-off show.”

So, who will she be watching in the jungle this year?

Carol Vorderman

The former Countdown star has allegedly been offered a six-figure sum to head into the jungle. Carol can literally do anything and everything, so if it's true, all bets are off already.

Scarlett Moffatt

Our favourite Gogglebox couch potato is rumoured to take part in the series.

An insider told The Sun: "Scarlett has gone down really well on Gogglebox and I’m A Celeb producers think she’s a perfect fit for them.

The TOWIE star could be following in pal Gemma Collins' footsteps.

A source told Digital Spy that Kate is heading Down Under and looking for love after her split from Dan Edgar.

Tyson Fury

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.

Robbie Savage

The former Strictly Come Dancing star, who is close friends with hosts Ant and Dec, has been on ITV’s list of dream contestants for years and it seems the time has finally come.

According to sources, the 41-year-old ex-footballer and TV pundit is set to swap the sequins and fake tan of Strictly for a khaki vest and mosquito repellent once he signs on the dotted line.

"Robbie would be an amazing signing. We’re quietly confident he’ll it after years or trying to persuade him," said a source.
