I’m a Celebrity Get Me out of Here might not be returning till November but the rumour mill is already churning on who will be heading into the jungle.
So, which celebrities will be getting their fill of kangaroo testicles and covered in green ants all for our amusement?
It’s rumoured ITV bosses have decided to cull the amount of reality stars appearing in the series, following claims they were using the show as some kind of Loose Women panellist factory after campmates like Vicky Pattison and Ferne McCann, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Don’t miss the brand new trailer for the show too.

Here is some of the rumoured line-up.

The boxer recently had to pull out of a rematch against Wladimir Klitschko and producers are said to be desperate to get him in the jungle.
Reports suggest that the TV presenter and former Rear of the Year, has been offered a six-figure sum to appear in the jungle. Not only would she be great entertainment but she’d certainly provide plenty of sex appeal too.
Her husband James Jordan has already appeared on Celebrity Big Brother and now it’s Ola’s turn for a stint of celebrity reality TV. James’ provided plenty of controversies when in the house, and we imagine Ola would be the same. The only problem here is Aliona Vilani, her former Strictly Come Dancing colleague wants a shot of going Down Under and producers only want one of them on the show.
The rumour mill has been churning on the Gogglebox legend heading to the jungle for quite some time and we think she’s a perfect fit for the show. The down to earth Geordie lass never fails with her one-liners from the sofa and we think she’d fare just as well in the jungle too. One we definitely hope gets confirmed.
The actor was a hot favourite to win a few years back when he appeared on the show, but his time in the jungle was cut short when his brother sadly passed away. He’d be a great addition to the lineup so we’d love to see Craig return.
Olympic love is still riding high and Strictly has two of its own with Greg Rutherford and Claudia Fragaprane so we should expect that I’m a Celeb will get its own athlete. Nicola herself has spoken of her love of the show: “I like the jungle, I like the challenges. I always want to win so it would be good for me.”

She’s probably best known for her role as Catriona in Absolutely Fabulous and so after the release of the film earlier this year, we wouldn’t be surprised is Helen Federer made her return to reality TV on I’m A Celeb.
The actress has previously been linked to Celebrity Big Brother and has appeared on Splash and Celebrity Masterchef, so she’s clearly not one to shy away from the television.
The former footballer has been high on the producers’ wish list for quite some time and hopefully this will be the year they bag Robbie. He certainly doesn’t shy away from sharing his opinion, he’s mates with Ant & Dev and he’s sure to have plenty of interesting stories to share. We think he’d be a great addition to the line-up.

Yes, you’re right if you’re thinking that Spencer has already had a stint in the jungle. He appeared last year, but after one day he was booted out / chose to leave when it turned out he’d been taking steroids. Now that’s all in his past, rumours suggest producers have already offered him a slot on this series.
More eye candy of course, but the Neighbours actress lives Down Under so it would certainly be convenient for her to star.
Admittedly these rumours come around every year and are all got excited when Colleen had reportedly suggested that she was headed Down Under, but the WAG has since gone on to say that she was misquoted. You never know, though.
Arg – James Argent
It wouldn’t be I’m A Celeb without the token TOWIE cast member and Arg has been rumoured for the show for quite some time. Now he’s one of the few remaining original cast members on the show he’s definitely the most recognisable of the bunch of TOWIE left.

Rumours were rife the Geordie Shore star was heading into the jungle last year despite Vicky Pattison already being resident.
The reality star fuelled speculation, tweeting: “Straight to the airport!!! AUSTRALIA HERE I COME.”
A rep for the parsnip-owner said Gaz was heading abroad for “non Geordie Shore business” and he ended up doping a slot on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here NOW!
Could this he migrate to the actual show this year?
We’re pretty sure that it’d be hoped Lisa would recreate that Myleene Klass moment, but not only that we’d all be hoping she’ll talk about her colourful love life, most notably her years with George Clooney.
So he currently stepped back into the position of UKIP leader after Diane James stepped down after 18 days but if a new leader comes in soon enough reports suggest Farage could be heading to the jungle. He wouldn’t be the first MP to take a trip Down Under and let’s be honest if his does go in there’s every certainty he would be voted for every single Bushtucker Trial.

American actress Ayda Field, who is married to Robbie Williams is also rumoured to be joining the lineup.
She’s been appearing on Loose Women for some time now raising her profile in the UK and she starred in ITV’s thriller Paranoid too.
ITV bosses are said to be willing to pay six figures for the actress, and she has yet to turn it down so they’re still hopeful.
