I'm a Celebrity 2012

Comedian Brian Conley has reportedly joined the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! line up.

The stand up has admitted that he asked show hosts Ant and Dec whether to take part after getting yet another offer from producers.

The 51-year-old has declined the opportunity to get out to the Aussie jungle in the past, but has finally given in it seems.

He told the Daily Star newspaper this week: “I asked Ant and Dec if they’d advise me to do it and they said ‘Don’t’.”

The rumoured celebs on this year’s I’m A Celebrity line up include former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan, singer Grace Jones, darts champ Eric Bristow and Birds of a Feather star Linda Robson.

Also lined up for the upcoming series are rumoured to be Tory MP Louise Mensch, Corrie star Ryan Thomas and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Nancy Dell’Olio.

It was recently reported that bosses were keen to get Olympic stars on this year’s line up.

According to The Sun, names on the show’s wish list include cycling champs Bradley Wiggins and Elizabeth Armitstead, as well as gymnast Beth Tweddle and swimmer Rebecca Adlington.

Other celebrities on the line are said to include Blind Date host Cilla Black and telly chef Ainsley Harriott.

I’m A Celebrity 2012 airs on ITV1 from November.
