Is she, isn't she? Carol Vorderman addresses I'm A Celeb claims

The former Countdown presenter was asked if she could confirm or deny the rumours?

Carol Vorderman is one of many rumoured to be appearing on this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here and she has responded to the claims, well kinda.

The 55-year-old appeared on Good Morning Britain and she only fuelled speculation further.

Carol had appeared on the show to speak about the events that took place at the Pride Of Britain awards, when the hosts pushed her further.

Susanna Reid said: "Before we let you go, rumours are swirling around if you are going to go in the jungle."

Caroline immediately interrupted: "From the sublime to the ridiculous we're going now."

Susanna continued to press her: "Can you confirm or deny?"

Carol responded, looking at her fellow guest: "I cannot confirm nor deny, can I Nikki?"

The former Countdown star added: "I might take some time off to do reality TV in the future when I'm calmer."

Ranvir then pointed out: "She's not even making eye contact with us anymore."

Carol brushed off the questions and spoke to Nikki saying: "We might be cooking up a little witchy grub muffin later, is that right?

"We might be doing that."

Oh, Carol you tease!

So, who else is rumoured to be entering the jungle?

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.

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.

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.
