Jacqueline Jossa says she's considering taking part in I'm A Celebrity 2018.

The soap star recently bowed out of EastEnders and is now looking for a rather different challenge.


Speaking to OK! magazine this week, the actress revealed: “I was asked about doing I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here last year but I couldn’t do it as I was contracted to EastEnders."

She added: "I would definitely consider it in the future, but I don’t know if I could leave my family for that long.”

However Jacqueline has ruled out taking part in Strictly Come Dancing despite an offer.

“I’ve been asked to do Strictly Come Dancing but I can’t dance so there’s no way I would embarrass myself by going on that!” she confessed.

The new series of I'm A Celebrity and Strictly won't air until the autumn on ITV and BBC One respectively.

However already there have been lots of rumours about who could be a part of both shows.


One of those rumoured for I'm A Celebrity is Love Island's Marcel Somerville.

As Kem Cetinay takes part in Dancing On Ice, Marcel is eyeing up a rather different reality TV challenge.

Speaking to BANG! Showbiz, Marcel said he was up for a stint in the I'm A Celebrity jungle.

“I think I’m probably more suited to the jungle because I like to do challenges and I like to talk to people," he said.

The former Blazin' Squad star went on: “I don’t think Dancing on Ice or Strictly would be well suited to me because I don’t like learning routines because of Blazin’ Squad.
“It comes from making us doing Love on the Line and they made us dance to it and I was like ‘we’ll never dance again’.”


“We’ll sway from side to side and we’ll wave our hands but we’ll never do another routine.”

Meanwhile, JB Gill could be the next JLS singer to compete in Strictly Come Dancing.


The performer says he would happily follow in Aston Merrygold's footsteps.

"Obviously Aston has just done it and I love the show, I would do it, I definitely would," he told the Daily Star newspaper.
