I’m A Celeb: Line-up rumours including Vinnie Jones, Jenny Ryan and Eamonn Holmes

Who is rumoured to be on the ITV reality series this year?

| Updated:

I’m A Celeb fans don’t have long to wait until the 2020 series is here and rumours abound regarding ITV’s line-up.

This year, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will shoot in Wales for the first time ever, with the coronavirus pandemic making filming overseas difficult.

ITV confirmed in August that Gwrych Castle, near the northern coast of Wales, will replace the Australian jungle as the filming location for series 20.

But who is reportedly being lined up to appear on the programme? Read on to find out more.

The former host of The One Show spoke about the ITV series with Hello magazine, insisting he hasn’t had any conversations about doing the show.

But he admitted he doesn’t like saying no to projects without having a “good think about it” first.

Jenny Ryan

Jenny, best known as The Vixen on The Chase, joked in August that the fact the series was shooting in the UK meant she wouldn’t mind doing it.

She wrote on Twitter: “My main reservations about doing #ImACeleb have always been 1. The Spiders 2. The Snakes 3. The Heat, so this could be a big opportunity for ol’ Jenny.”

She wouldn’t be the first chaser on the show; in the 2018 series, fellow quizzer Anne Hegerty was a firm favourite with viewers.

The presenter previously said he has been asked to do the series on a number of occasions.

He told Radio Times: “I’ve been asked for the last two or three years to do I’m a Celebrity.”

Speaking further, he said that while he has always said no, for him it’s a case of “never say never”.
