I'm A Celebrity 2018: The Vamps' James McVey 'signs up for the jungle'

James McVey

The Vamps star James McVey has reportedly signed up for the I'm A Celebrity 2018 line up.

James is part of four piece boy band The Vamps together with Bradley Simpson, Tristan Evans and Connor Ball.


The group have released three studio albums to date, with most recent Night & Day going straight to Number 1 in the charts.

Now James is set to swap the stage for the jungle, having apparently agreed an 'undisclosed fee' to join I'm A Celebrity next week.

"James is certain to cause excitement with his topless shower scenes," a source told The Sun newspaper.

James has yet to comment on the reports but did take to Instagram to assure fans new music would still be out next year.

"Can’t wait for new vamps music next year," he teased.

The new series of I'm A Celebrity launches next Sunday night on ITV.


Although the channel has not officially announced any names, a list of 'confirmed' celebs has supposedly been leaked.

Alongside James, the rumoured names include Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer, EastEnders actor Rita Simons, TV presenter Nick Knowles and The Inbetweeners star Emily Atack.

Joining them are said to be The X Factor's Fleur East, The Chase's 'The Governess' Anne Hegerty, football manager Harry Redknapp and Coronation Street's Sair Khan.

A further 'mystery' celeb will also join the camp on launch night, while two further famous faces are expected to join the show later in the series.

Away from the I'm A Celebrity cast, ITV has announced Holly Willoughby will join Dec as co-host this year after Ant stepped down from TV commitments until 2019 after seeking treatment in rehab.


I'm A Celebrity typically launches next Sunday, November 18 on ITV at 9PM. The series will air nightly over three weeks.
