Koo Stark, the former girlfriend of Prince Andrew, is reportedly in talks for the upcoming series of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

According to The Mirror, ITV bosses are particularly keen to land Koo this year, which has seen significant coverage of the royal family.


A show source commented: "Koo is a brilliant booking. Everyone loves the royals, so what better than getting someone who actually dated one?

"It’s a huge year for the royals with the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death, Prince Harry’s ­relationship with Meghan [Markle] and Prince Philip’s retirement.

"So if ITV bagged Koo is would be a massive coup."

The 61-year-old - full name Kathleen Dee-Anne Stark - famously dated Prince Andrew for an eighteen-month period in the 1980s.

However, she split from the Duke of York after it emerged that she'd once appeared in a soft porn film.

Koo, now a photographer, has repeatedly been linked to reality TV shows over the years.

She almost appeared on the 2007 series of I'm A Celebrity. However, reports claimed that producers dropped her because she didn't fit with the mix of personalities involved.

In December 2015, she apparently signed up for Channel 5's Celebrity Big Brother - before pulling out at the last minute.

I'm A Celeb's return is drawing closer, with its new series due to begin in mid-November.


Other rumoured contestants include rugby icon Ben Cohen, The Saturdays singer Vanessa White, and Gogglebox star Sandra Martin.

Last week, ITV said it's "expecting" Ant McPartlin to be back at work in time for the show following his recent stint in rehab.
