I’M A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of here may still be a few months away till it begins.
But rumours are already going around about who will be taking part in the 2021 series. Let’s take a look…
Who is in the rumoured I'm A Celebrity 2021 line-up?
It’s not the first time that the controversial broadcaster's name has been thrown around for the 2021 series of I’m A Celeb.
After his sudden exit from Good Morning Britain in March he was linked to a spot on I’m a Celebrity. – Ant and Dec had a lot of fun with the press with these rumours.
However, it wasn't long before Piers gave a strong “no” to the show in his Daily Mail column, he writes “Let me make one thing crystal clear: there’s no way I’m ever exposing myself to a series of ghastly gastronomic humiliations for the delectation of the British public. When I munch kangaroo testicles, I do so in the privacy of my home.”
Ant and co-star Dec have both shared that they would be keen for Piers to join the jungle and said now is the best time for him to join following his departure from GMB
Speaking on the Lorraine show, Ant teased:"He's not working at the moment, so you know, he'll be looking for a job."
Piers has however just signed a TV deal with News UK, which means it would likely rule him out of appearing on the show anyway, but we could still be in for a shock.
The EastEnders star was one of the first celebrities to mention that he would be keen for a spot in the jungle.
After the Max Branning actor appeared on GMB, where presenter Ben Shephard asked if he would be finished with the filming for the West End production in time to do the ITV reality show, Jake replied: “Yes, I finish in mid October and I’ve made no secret about it, I’d love to do the jungle.”
One source told The Sun: “He would love to go into the jungle,”
“He thinks it would be a great challenge for him and he has of course seen how well other EastEnders stars have done on the series.”
After the producers have seen the BBC3 series RuPaul’s Drag Race UK take off, they want a piece of the action.
It’s rumoured that I’m A Celeb are looking to cast their first drag queen this year.
An ITV insider said: “Casting directors want the most diverse I’m A Celeb line-up possible.
“They’re keen to sign drag queens. They have big fanbases who would follow them to I’m a Celeb.”
Ever since Baga rose to fame on the first series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK in 2019, she has been everywhere.
Whilst chatting exclusively to heat, Baga said, “I’m a bit of a lazy cow when it comes to telly. [I’d do] anything where I can sit down, like I’m A Celeb. You can put anything in my gob. I’d get ten stars. I’d eat anything,”
“I don’t think they’d be ready for me. You know how you had your Lady C and your Kim Woodburn? I’d be one of them. I’d be the talking point of the show, put that way.”
Former Great British Bake Off winner was approached to take part in the 2020 series but ended up declining the offer – although she regrets doing so.
Speaking to The Guardian, Nadiay said: “It’s just so cold in Wales: if I’m going to have cockroaches in my pants I’d rather it be in the sun, thanks. Still, I can’t help wondering what it would have been like.”
Will the bosses approach her again for this year's series?
Perri has previously said she would be up to take part in the challenge, and this came after his dance partner Jordan Banjo took part.
Speaking to Digital Spy, The fellow Diversity member said: “Jordan has been in the jungle, and I love that normally everyone comes out and they’re like, ‘Oh my god, it was the greatest experience of my life. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.’”
“Jordan came out and was like, ‘That was the worst thing I’ve ever experienced. Never send me back there again.’ So I’ve got, like, two perspectives of it. But I’d like the challenge. So yeah, get me in there, why not?”
After vacating her spot on the BBC Breakfast sofa, Louise has been rumoured to be entering the castle.
The Sun quoted an unnamed source who said producers are hoping she could follow in the footsteps of fellow BBC broadcaster Victoria Derbyshire, who appeared on last year’s series.
Coronation Street star Lucy has been rumoured in the line up of I’m a Celeb after The Sun reported she’d lost out on a spot on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing line-up to fellow Corrie alum Katie McGlynn.
The Sun said that ITV had approached her after she missed out on Strictly and that was currently “considering” it.
