I’m A Celebrity 2017: Sam Thompson to replace Jack Maynard?

Could Sam Thompson end up replacing Jack Maynard on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here?


Sam’s Made In Chelsea co star Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo is currently in the jungle.

And she is hoping Sam could join her, saying: “Sam would keep me sane whatever situation we found ourselves in even if it was weird.

“We’d laugh about it all.”

Sam himself said this week: “It’s such a good experience. I’d jump at the opportunity to do the jungle. I’ve watched it for years and it looks fun.”

With Jack Maynard having left the series after just two days, could we end up with two MiC stars in camp this year?


For now, Toff is in it on her own.

Living off barely any food and leaving her luxurious lifestyle behind will be a massive hurdle for the Made In Chelsea star, but it’s not luxuries she’ll miss the most.

The 23-year-old TV reality star is dreading not being able to speak to her Granny every day.

“I call her at least 20 times a day,” she admitted before entering. “When I look at my call log, her number is always on there.

“I phone her for advice on everything. I am really going to miss that.”

Meanwhile, Toff has said she didn’t have to think twice about accepting the offer to join the series.

“I have watched it since I was so young and when they asked to talk to me, I was like ‘OMG is this real?” she revealed.

“I thought they were winding me up at first, but when it was confirmed I was like ‘Wow’. I think people think I am ditzy, which I am in certain ways.

“But I really enjoy interesting conversation. I hope there are loads in there.”


“I also think people think I am prim and proper and I won’t get stuck in but I will. It’s nice to show the real me.”

I’m A Celebrity continues nightly on ITV.
