With the new series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returning in just a few months, speculation about who we may see heading into the jungle is mounting.
The new series will return later this year with host Dec Donnelly and his brand new co-host Holly Willoughby, who will be filling in for Ant McPartlin as he focuses on his recovery.
While there’s been no confirmation which famous faces are going on the show, there’s been a string of celebrities rumoured to be going down under.
Here’s who has been rumoured to be heading into the Aussie jungle…
Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway has been rumoured to be heading into the jungle.
A source told The Sun: “Kate has been approached by show producers because they know she would be TV gold.
“Kate has always been relatable and game for a challenge but since entering her fifties she’s embracing all aspects of life and sees the Aussie jungle as the ultimate life test.”
Meanwhile, during an episode of GMB this week, Lorraine Kelly hinted that Kate is going on the show as she spoke to the presenters.
Lorraine claimed that the stars were “very close” to one of the contestants before Kate sighed and said: “I love how all of my colleagues want to see me buried and covered in cockroaches.”
Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing is another famous face being linked to the show as he’s good friends with last year’s winner Georgia “Toff” Toffolo.
A source told The Sun last month: “Jamie has been telling friends he is in talks to do it, which is long overdue after his stints on the ITV2 show.
“Producers love that he has got a TV following and online fans with his own YouTube channel, as they are trying to snap up a younger audience.”
They added: “He’s a cheeky chappie and no doubt the public will fall in love with him like they did Toff.”
Holby City actress Rosie Marcel revealed last month that she had met with I’m A Celebrity bosses about possibly going on the show.
During an appearance on Loose Women, Rosie, 41, admitted she would love to take part in the ITV reality show.
She told the panel: “I have, I’ve been… I’ve had a couple of meetings. I have spoken to them, it is something I would love to do actually.
“I think for me it would be an amazing challenge.”
When asked when she would appear on the show, Rosie added: “I don’t know. Who knows?”
Catherine Tyldesley recently left Coronation Street to focus on other TV projects. Could I’m A Celebrity be one of them?
Well it could happen as bookies Coral said: “Rumours over her next career move went into overdrive after she spoke about her relatives in Australia and her desire to spend some time there, and we think it’s all building up to a perfect match with a stint in the jungle.”
Former Corrie actor Shayne Ward is another star tipped to be heading into the jungle.
She said: “Now that Shayne Ward has left Coronation Street, it’s rumoured he might do I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!
“He’d definitely be entertaining if he was to head into the jungle. Shayne would be fun and a good sport and he’d probably sing the entire time, as that’s what he used to do all day at work.”
Coronation Street’s Lucy Fallon could take a break from the soap to jet off to Australia for the show.
It’s been reported the 22-year-old has been lined up by show bosses.
She previously said she believes she would be good on the show, telling the Daily Star: “I think I’d be good at the jungle. I like to challenge myself and that’s the most challenging show you can do.”
According to The Sun, a source claims the show’s bosses are “bending over backwards” to get Nick on this year’s series.
An insider told the publication: “They know Nick is incredibly popular, and they think he’d be great TV.
“Women love him, men respect him – and it’d be interesting to see if he’s as practical in the camp as he is on a building site.”
The person added: “He’s been offered the show a few times before, but this year they really want him on it so they’re bending over backwards and offering him big money.”
Katie Price’s ex-husband Kieran Hayler is another name tipped to be heading onto the show.
He’s been at the center of headlines over the past few months after he split from Katie in June, with Katie accusing him of cheating on her again, after previously taking him back after he slept with her best friend and allegedly their kids’ nanny.
A source told The Sun: “Kieran’s had a real bashing these last few months from Katie – doing I’m A Celebrity would be his chance to shine away from her. He’s been in contact with the show’s bosses and has been bragging to his mates about being in this series.
“Kieran wants a big money deal and has told his mates he won’t be doing it for a pittance. Now he’s getting buff again too he’s been saying it’s because he wants to look his best in the jungle.”
Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers has said he would “love” to do the show.
Speaking to The Sun in May, Aaron said: “I’d love to do the jungle but I’m petrified of spiders. There was one in the house the other day and I just ran away.
“But I’d like to test myself. I’m a team player and I’d have to do the challenges.”
Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer is another famous faces reportedly heading down under.
A source told The Sun: “Jungle producers were keen to snap up a young star with a fresh following to tune into the show.
“Malique is over the moon about the gig and has been hitting up the gym already to make sure his body is as buff as possible by the time he goes to Oz.”
Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack could be heading into the Aussie jungle.
An insider told The Sun: “I’m a Celeb approached Emily a while ago and she jumped at the chance.
“They are hoping she will be this year’s bikini babe to recreate Myleene Klass’s iconic shower in the camp waterfall from the 2006 series.”
She previously starred on Dancing On Ice back in 2010.
Love Island’s Olivia Attwood has been rumoured to be heading into the jungle alongside Charlotte Dawson.
A source told The Sun: “The girls are both really sexy and bosses are hoping they’ll have what it takes to spice up the show.
“Both girls have loads of personality and would really get stuck into the jungle tasks. They’d both love a place on the show.”
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is set to return on ITV later this year.
X Factor finalist Fleur East is the latest famous face rumoured to be appearing on this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
An insider told The Sun: “Fleur was one of the most loved X Factor contestants in recent years, so she is bound to be a hit with audiences. She’s part of the ITV family.
“The relationship is already there and they are just negotiating a deal at the moment.”
