Love Island's Olivia Attwood has claimed she's in talks to join the I'm A Celebrity line up.

Ant and Dec will soon be back for a new series of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.


And Olivia has said she could be one of the celebrities on this year's cast.

She shared at the TV Choice Awards earlier this month: "There have been conversations with I’m A Celebrity. It's ongoing.

"It would be my dream to do the jungle. I've made no qualms about that. It's such an iconic show."

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, Olivia said that appearing Down Under for the spin-off show last year gave her a taste for the experience.

She explained: "I got to do a trial, which was amazing. I think if I got to go on the show I would surprise people. I'm more of a tomboy than people think.

"Just because you look a certain way doesn't mean you can't eat a spider."


However Olivia isn't the only Love Islander linked to the show.

This year's Islanders Maura Higgins and Amy Hart have also been rumoured for the jungle.

Amy told Heart Breakfast recently: "I would love to. I’d absolutely love to."

She added: "I hate rats. I hate rats. That’s the only thing. Like I can deal with the Spiders and stuff, I can deal with all the creepy crawlies but it’s the rats. They put me in that coffin with rats.”

As for who else could be on this year's I'm A Celebrity, more rumoured names include Blue and Hollyoaks star Duncan James and football pundit Ian Wright, who has reportedly been offered a 'six figure' deal.

TV personality Ulrika Jonsson has also been rumoured for the show together with The Saturdays' singer Frankie Bridge and former England footballer and recent Celebrity Big Brother housemate John Barnes.


Further potential celebrity campers include Rugby star James Haskell and singer Myles Stephenson of X Factor winning boy group Rak-Su.

I'm A Celebrity typically launches on ITV in November.
