I'm A Celebrity 2012 line up: The rumours so far!

I'm A Celebrity 2012

I'm A Celebrity 2012 kicks off next month on ITV1, and there's been plenty of rumours about this year's line up, here's the latest on who's going on I'm A Celebrity this year!

Most recently, Helen Flanagan has been addressing reports that she’s set to appear in the jungle this year.

Discussing the rumours that she has signed up for I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!, Helen told The Sun this week that the series would be a “daunting project” for her and her fears.

She told the newspaper yesterday: “I get asked to do shows like this all the time, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

“It would be a daunting prospect as I’m very scared of heights and it would be a real challenge.

“I think it’s something you would have to really think about before agreeing to do.”

It's certainly not a no!

Rumoured celebs that could be joining Helen on this year’s I’m A Celebrity line up include singer Grace Jones, darts champ Eric Bristow and Birds of a Feather star Linda Robson.

It was reported earlier this year that bosses were keen to get Olympic stars on this year’s line up.

According to The Sun, names on the show’s wish list include cycling champs Bradley Wiggins and Elizabeth Armitstead, as well as gymnast Beth Tweddle and swimmer Rebecca Adlington.

Producers have also apparently found themselves involved in a bidding war with Celebrity Big Brother bosses over one star.

Kate Middleton’s stripper cousin Katrina Darling is reportedly wanted for both shows, with Channel 5 bosses also keen to get the burlesque performer onto Celebrity Big Brother 2013

According to the Daily Star recently, producers from both camps are prepared to “break the bank” in the hopes that Katrina will provide reality telly “dynamite”

Former Celebrity Big Brother star Georgia Salpa is also set to enter the I’m A Celebrity jungle later this year.

The Sun reports that I’m A Celeb bosses want the Irish model to sex up the camp this November.

But the brunette beauty could be too scared to take part, with a fear with heights and snakes.

“If she went on the show, it could have the same effect on her career as it did for Myleene Klass,” a pal of the model’s said.

However Georgia hit back at the claims this week. “I don’t know where people got that from but I’m definitely not going to be on the show this year,” she said. “To be honest I think I’m a little too girly to set up camp in the jungle anyway.”

Former Eastenders star Ricky Groves has also been linked to I’m A Celebrity 2012.

The Sun reported this week that the actor, who played Garry Hobbs in the BBC One series, has been approached to take part in the upcoming series of I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out Of Here!

The newspaper also claims that Ricky is “keen” to head out to the Aussie jungle next month for the new series

More recently, Former What Not To Wear presenters Trinny and Susannah are rumoured to be heading Down Under to take part in the new series.

The Sun claims that the fashionistas hope to revive their UK telly careers with an appearance on the ITV show, which returns next month.

A source told the newspaper: "It will be great watching Trinny and Susannah trying to slum it in the jungle. They are both strong and opinionated women and they’re bound to ruffle a lot of feathers.”

TOWIE beauty Maria Fowler has also been linked to the series, having quit the ITV2 series earlier this year.

A source told the Daily Star: "Producers are digging deep to try to get her. There is talk of offers on the table of up to £250,000.”

And Maria could be joined by Pussycat Doll babe Ashley Roberts, with an insider telling The Sun today: "Ashley is feisty and fun, but above all sexy. The jungle nonsense won’t faze her.”

Telly presenter Carol Smillie revealed this weekend that she had turned down a £60,000 offer to appear in the jungle.

She said: “I hate reality TV, though I do watch it. It appeals to the lowest common denominator – it’s a freak show.

“The people who appear on these shows make me cringe. I did Strictly, which was amazing. You learn a skill and don’t have to live in a house with cameras watching you. But not many shows offer that.

“I think I would know I’d hit rock bottom if I ever went on something like I’m A Celebrity or Big Brother. I’ve been asked so many times but I never would.”

England cricketer Matthew Hoggard, is another linked to the show.

With his former teammate Michael Vaughan on Strictly, Matthew is set to enter the I'm A Celebrity jungle next month.

STV reports that the the fast bowler - nicknamed King of the Swingers - is being lined up by telly chiefs who reckon he'll make "great TV" Australian jungle as producers think he will make great TV.

FINALLY, for now, Made In Chelsea's Hugo Taylor is set to complete the line up.

A source told The Sun this morning: "Hugo is good looking and sexy — just what we want to help pull in female viewers. And, of course, if he chooses to reveal secrets about all of his posh mates then so much the better.”

Will any of the rumours come true?
