Martin Kemp to do I’m A Celebrity?

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Martin would be a key signing for I’m A Celeb this year but there’s a massive price attached to his name.

“ITV approached his management company and they’re talking figures.

Roman was a hit with viewers in the last series so getting Martin would be a coup.

This is instead of the usual Australian jungle due to the coronavirus crisis, which has freed up Martin to appear on the show.

The insider added: “Martin had been approached earlier in the year but couldn’t have made it work because of prior commitments.

“But after coronavirus cleared his schedule the only thing standing between him and the show is whether ITV can afford his fee.”

Roman competed on the series last year.

He finished third while Martin’s former Spandau Ballet bandmate Tony Hadley took part in 2015.

ITV recently confirmed the upcoming series is going to be filmed in Wales.
