Hold onto your hats because it’s nearly time for I’m A Celebrity… 2014.
Ah, we can almost smell the Iceland adverts.
TV presenter Melanie Sykes and The Only Way Is Essex star, Gemma Collins, have been confirmed as contestants on this year’s series of the show.
According to a sneaky source, ITV bosses are still making a couple of last minute alterations to the line-up, but these two have already arranged their flights to Oz, and could be there as soon as Sunday.
Which, by the way, is an entire week before the show kicks off.
The insider revealed: “Mel and Gemma are two great names who will be very familiar to ITV viewers. Both of them are not slow in coming forward in conversations and have been photographed in bikinis before, so they tick lots of boxes for the jungle.
“We’re juggling things around but confident that we are going to get a great mix in time for the show.”
Dear ITV, our entire November kind of depends on this being a bloomin’ fantastic line-up – so no pressure, yeah?!
It is thought that up to 90 celebrities have been approached by show bosses to take part in the most testicle-eating, anus-munching, fear-inducing show of them all, with it being suggested that a whole heap of TOWIE girls were fighting for a spot.
Joey Essex’s cousin, Chloe Sims, was thought to be the most likely Essex lady to blag a place, but it looks like Gemma pipped her to the post at the final hurdle.
Other rumoured celebs include The Wanted’s Max George, Hollyoaks’ Gemma Merna, Katie Price’s ex Alex Reid, and Dancing On Ice’s Brianne Delcourt.
More well-known names who are thought to have been approached include Michelle Keegan (who used to date Max so THAT could be awkward), as well as Olympic champ Tom Daley and Tulisa Contostavlos.
Although Tulisa is absolutely adamant that there is no truth to these rumours whatsoever.
Needless to say, we can’t bloomin’ wait to see who will definitely be joining Gem and Mel in the Aussie outback, with it already looks like it is shaping up to be a pretty solid year for the jungle.
