The Only Way Is Essex’s Kate Wright has been tipped for I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Reports today say that ITV bosses are keen to sign Kate, who is dating footballer Rio Ferdinand, for the jungle in the autumn.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “The show really wants her. She would be a total coup. She’s beautiful, funny and she’s dating Rio. They are hoping she will say yes.”
Kate previously said she’d be up for the show, commenting: “A lot of people think I’m just a girl from Essex.
“They think I’m a bit ditsy and that I wouldn’t go on a show like that, and do the trials. But I’m stronger than people think and I would give it a go. I love that show.”
The rumours come after Kate announced she was quitting TOWIE for a “long break”.
“I am taking a long break from the show to focus on my new business ventures and an exciting bikini range,” she revealed earlier this year.
While the new series of I’m A Celebrity is a LONG way off hitting TV screens, Kate isn’t the only rumoured celeb.
X Factor’s Honey G and Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas have been tipped to join the line up this year.
Other names tentatively linked to the show include Olympic Taekwondo champ Jade Jones, The Only Way Is Essex’s Danielle Armstrong and Tattoo Fixers star Paisley Billings.
Finally there are rumours that Made In Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews may finally return to camp after his short stay on the show in 2015.
