I’m A Celebrity winner headed back into jungle for Aussie version

Can she triumph again?

Former Queen of the Jungle, Vicky Pattinson, has reportedly signed up for the Australian version of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here according to The Daily Star Sunday.

The 30-year-old is apparently set to fly out to South Africa, where the Aussie show is filmed, at the end of the month.

This is the first time someone who’s previously appeared on the UK version of the show has been asked to go on the Aussie version.

After shrugging off her infamous Geordie Shore reputation in the Australian jungle two years ago, Vicky has apparently wowed the show’s bosses so much that they could resist asking her to take part.

An insider told the newspaper: “The Australian version is really popular with viewers. Producers saw Vicky on the UK show and loved her. They think she’ll be brilliant.”

According to The Daily Star Sunday Vicky will net herself £250,000 for doing the show, where she will spend up to four weeks in the Kruger National Park.

Since leaving the I’m A Celeb jungle, Vicky has forged herself a successful TV presenting career – including Loose Women and This Morning.
