I’m A Celebrity duo Emily Atack and John Barrowman are reportedly in talks for their own TV show.

The pair both made the final of I’m A Celebrity last year, although it was football manager Harry Redknapp that won the show.


While neither was crowned King nor Queen of the jungle, both Emily and John proved a hit with viewers – and now they could be getting their own series.

Speaking at the National Television Awards, where I’m A Celebrity won, Emily spilled: “There’s ideas floating around.

“At the moment everything is meetings and exciting opportunities.”

Meanwhile, John revealed how his time in the jungle had made him a changed man.

He told The Sun newspaper: “It changed me. I don’t wear underpants anymore. I go commando all the time. I did it every day in the jungle.”

It was previously claimed that following I’m A Celebrity, Emily had been ‘inundated’ with work offers.


Reports claimed even before she had boarded the plane back to the UK, the time in the Australian jungle had done wonders for her career.

“When she lands back in the UK she’s got some huge meetings scheduled in and has some really lucrative opportunities to think about,” a source told The Sun last month.

They revealed: “This Morning bosses are already hoping to tie her down to a short-term role because she’s so well suited to their audience. And a number of big comedy panel shows are hoping to get her on board over the next 12 months.

“Emily is still stunned she managed to do so well in the jungle but she’s a natural entertainer… Out of everyone who appeared on the show, even Harry, she’s the real winner of the show because it’s opened so many doors.”


I’m A Celebrity will return for a new series in 2019.

Ant and Dec have already been confirmed to be hosting this year’s show, after Holly Willoughby stood in for Ant last year.
