The popular ITV show throws celebrities into the Australian jungle for three weeks and sees them compete in a series of Bushtucker Trials and Challenges to win food and, ultimately, the love of the public. 

We don’t yet know when I’m A Celebrity is returning to our screens but previous years would suggest November time. 

Nor do we know who will be entering the outback vying to become King or Queen of the Jungle, but that doesn’t stop the rumour mill going into overdrive.

Here are the latest famous faces linked with the show…

Rebekah Vardy

The wife of Leicester City and England striker Jamie Vardy was said to be in talks with the ITV show earlier this year. 

Rebekah, 35, was apparently looking to join the show last year but the plans were put on hold when she fell pregnant.

And reports have suggested that the plan for the “glamorous and fiery” Brunette to go Down Under could be back on.

The former Made In Chelsea hunk lasted just three days in the Australian outback last time out in 2015.

He withdrew from the programme after admitting to taking steroids leading show officials to fear it could be unsafe for him to stay.

Earlier this year, Spencer told new! magazine that he would return to the show because “everything was twisted and turned quite weirdly last time”.
