Heartbroken Saturdays star Vanessa White to put split behind her ‘with stint in I’m A Celebrity…’

Nothing like eating kangaroo bum to distract oneself!

Will the Saturdays star Vanessa White be going Down Under to help put her heartbreak behind her?

The 27-year-old who’s been struggling to launch a solo singing career after her band split would apparently love to go into the I’m a Celebrity… jungle.

A friend has told The Sun: “Vanessa is a stunning girl from a massive girl band so she’s an exciting first signing for I’m A Celebrity.

“The bosses are super keen to have her.”

The appearance would coincide with her ex-bandmate, Mollie King strutting her way onto the Strictly stage.

No word from the I’m a Celebrity bosses themselves about whether Vanessa’s even on their radar but the show has a long history of favouring girls like Vanessa.

Previous stars cooling down in their tiny bikinis under the waterfall include Corrie star Helen Flanagan and TV host Myleene Klass.

The source says the show wouldn’t stop her chasing single sales though: “She’s still focussing on her music career but is up for the challenge since being newly single.”

Vanessa recently split from her partner of six years Gary Salter who she met when she was 21.

A source said: “Vanessa and Gary have been together since she was 21. He’s been by her side through all her successes with The Saturdays and as a solo singer.

“But they’ve decided they needed time apart to figure things out after being together since she was so young.

“They remain friends and have the utmost respect for each other.”

Vanessa and Gary, who works as a menswear stylist, met back in 2011 after being introduced by friends at a party.

Now Vanessa has ditched her fashionable fella and her shiny pop roots and is forging a new path into the R&B market.

It’s speculated the girls each made around £2 million from their time in The Saturdays.
