I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! will be back for its 2021 series in just a matter of weeks – but who is expected to be on the billing this year?
As with all the nation’s favourite competition reality shows, speculation is beginning to mount over who might pop their head up on this year’s programme.
We have rounded up some of the names currently expected to land in the show so far
Jake Wood left EastEnders earlier this year after nearly 15 years on the BBC soap and has reportedly already been ‘in talks’ with the I’m A Celeb bosses.
Speaking on GMB earlier this summer Jake confirmed an appearance in the jungle would be well on the cards.
The actor is currently starring in the play 2:22 A Ghost Story alongside Lily Allen but confirmed this would be over in time in the case he was to get the call.
‘I’ve made no secret of that, I’d love to do the jungle,’ he previously told Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway – but will he be donning the camp gear this year?
The whole of Great Britain got behind Tom to see him bring home huge success in the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics last month.
Tom has continued to win himself millions of fans after winning gold in the 10m synchronised diving event, with Matty Lee.
Now, Tom remains one of the names floated around consistently by bookmakers ahead of this year’s I’m A Celeb.
Olympians are no strangers to taking up a spot on the show, with champion Sir Mo Farah having appeared as a camp mate just last year – but could the stage now be set for Tom to take the plunge?
After winning the hearts of the nation on Love Island, Liberty quickly jumped into pole position as the bookies’ favourite to sign-up to the ITV show.
The 22-year-old star saw her odds recently slashed by Ladbrokes from 3/1 to 2/1 to head into Gwrych Castle.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: ‘Liberty was by far the most popular Islander of the series.
‘She could be set for a stint on another ITV show later this year, with I’m A Celeb chiefs likely to come calling.’
The Irish Music producer may have missed out on his place in the Love Island villa this summer but he continues to keep busy recently in the studio with Benny Steele (engineer of Justin Biebers ‘Boyfriend’, Pitbull & Kesha ‘Timber’ & Jason Derulos ‘Talk Dirty’), Rob Murray (engineer on Rihannas ‘Consideration’) and recently writing with One Direction hit-writer Will Champlin. Emmet is sure to have plenty of industry stories for the castle.
His song ‘The War’ featuring Irish band Stolen City also features multiple Grammy award winners such as Eminem and Kanye Wests drummer Dylan Wissing and the Chainsmokers guitarist Reid Johnson and has been used in a sold out film in Northern Ireland. Benny Steele is also in engineer duties.
A hit on social media, we would love to see Emmet in the castle. Will Emmet be the only musical guest in the castle this winter?
Love Island’s Olivia coupled up with Chris Hughes in the 2017 series of the reality show and became known for her outspoken ways and hilarious quips.
It now seems viewers could be seeing her back on TV very soon as Olivia previously told RadioTimes.com she’d definitely be up for trying out the show.
She said: ‘I’d love to do the jungle, I’d give Dancing on Ice a go, although it does scare me. I’m a bit of a baby, so I don’t like getting hurt. I feel like the minute I fall over once, I’d be done.
‘I know it sounds dramatic, but I’m just a bit like that. For me, the jungle is less scary. So I’d love to do the jungle.’
The Little Mix star has been speculated for weeks to make a surprise entry amid a string of exciting new releases for the girl band.
It comes as her two bandmates, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, are currently very busy – having both recently given birth.
Jade was a hit with fans when she appeared on Bake Off for Stand Up 2 Cancer and has previously been quizzed on whether she would be up for I’m A Celeb.
She far from ruled out a stint on the show when speaking to Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston on Heart’s Breakfast show.
The singer shared: ‘I’ll try anything once me, do you know what I mean? I’ll give it a crack.
‘If something smells bad I won’t put it in my mouth, but I am good at creepy crawlies.’
Love Island star Tommy, brother of Tyson Fury has emerged as one of the hot favourite to sign up for this years series. The boxer who found fame on the ITV series, alongside girlfriend Molly Mae-Hague, is currently at 3/1 according to the latest odds from bookmaker Betfair.
Other names in the frame include Line of Duty’s Kate Fleming actress Vicky McClure who places at 8/1 alongside Made in Chelsea star and reality favourite Sam Thompson.
Richard Cowles, Director of Unscripted at Lifted Entertainment added: “With the continued uncertainty around COVID and international travel we have taken the decision not to return to our home in Australia for the 2021 series.
“We’re excited to return to Gwrych Castle. The last series was a huge success and we were made to feel so welcome by everyone locally and can’t wait to see everyone again.”
