Somehow November is just around the corner (remember speculating new Islanders and dealing with unholy heatwaves?), which of course means those I'm A Celeb line-up rumours are RUMOURING.
From one of Katie Price's exes to an iconic Islander, to a controversial MP, to a Coronation Street legend; if even half of these rumours come into fruition we're all in for a wild ride down under this year.
And let's just say we're manifesting the most suspect of eating trials for at least one or two of these potential campmates because they're giving serious Matt Hancock vibes.
Last week, a brand new trailer for the latest series saw presenters Ant and Dec showcasing some serious acting chops far away in a tropical jungle, working at the 'jungle retreat'.
From making eye-catching towel art, to delicately raking the sand to presenting some ‘exotic’ cuisine the pair can be seen offering the new campmates ‘the full celebrity treatment’ as they open the doors to the 5* (ish…) jungle retreat.
And here are their (potential) VIP guests...
Soap legend Alan has played Tyrone Dobbs on Corrie since 1998. A source told The Sun, ”Alan is a top lad with bags of personality so ITV are over the moon he’s in talks to join their 2023 cast.”
The weather presenter, who famously came to blows with Piers Morgan over Meghan Markle in 2021, told The Mirror, "Out of all the shows, I would love to do the jungle.”
Death in Paradise star Ben Miller recently teased his involvement on this year's I'm A Celeb on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch, telling the presenters, "I'm packing for Australia, I go to Australia tomorrow until Christmas, so it's a lot of packing. I'm going to Canberra."
Katie Price's rugby-playing ex looks set to take part in this year's I'm A Celeb. A source recently told the Daily Mail that he is "confirmed" for the series, describing his addition as "one of the most exciting signings for this series”.
Denise van Outen
Sorry, but if this is true, this is an absolute heatworld win. Denise recently told The Sun that she has been approached about the show several times in the past, "I will do it at some point. I think I’m A Celebrity for my 50th birthday would be something nice to do." Denise turns 50 next year – just saying.
Rumours about jockey Frankie Dettori's involvement has been doing the rounds for weeks now. A source told The Sun, "Frankie is excited for the jungle but is just worried about who will do his hair while he is there!"
The Little Mix icon recently said she would "try everything once" when asked about I'm A Celeb – and if she gives us even a fraction of what she gave us on The Great Celebrity Bake Off for SU2C, we're sold.
Let's face it, The Big Brother winner/This Morning host would be the perfect candidate for I'm A Celeb - IMAGINE the late night pillow-talk dishing all that This Morning goss. Producers have reportedly been "determined" to get her on the line-up.
According to OLBG, the former PM, "is a new entrant in the betting market to appear on this year's I'm A Celebrity with Matt Hancock's appearance on the show possibly giving inspiration to other politicians." If this is true, we're manifesting a short stint – another one, that is.
Fans were left devo'd when Love Island icon Olivia Attwood was forced to drop out of last year's I'm A Celeb due to medical reasons. She's publicly admitted to have chats with bosses during an appearance on the Loose Women panel, so consider our fingers crossed.
The Made in Chelsea icon turned podcaster is currently busy showing his support for his Strictly gf Zara McDermott, but if the rumours are true, the couple could be sharing the reality telly spotlight in the coming weeks. Re Sam signing up for I'm a Celeb, a source told The Sun, "Sam is a great signing because he has a huge fan base and a funny self-deprecating personality."
The Drag Race UK winner and Dancing on Ice star is rumoured to be heading to the Jungle next month and our bodies and souls are ready. In the past, she's revealed that she'd be up for some Bushtucker trials – as long as none of them involve spiders.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returns this autumn on ITV1 and ITVX.
