Trinny and Susannah set to become contestants on I'm A Celebrity 2012?

I'm A Celebrity 2012Former What Not To Wear presenters Trinny and Susannah are rumoured to be heading Down Under to take part in the new series of I'm A Celebrity.

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

I'm A Celeb bosses apparently hope the high-maintenance duo will cause friction among their fellow campmates, as they abandon their plush lifestyles for a jungle routine of rice, beans and Bushtucker Trials.

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.”

"They have enough money not to work but they miss the buzz of telly and they want to get back on prime time and back into proper fashion."

They became household names as the faces of What Not To Wear in the early 2000s on BBC One, before switching to ITV to host Undress The Nation, which was eventually axed in 2007.

More recently they've taken their expertise abroad, hosting series in countries such as Poland, Sweden and Isreal.

Other names linked to the new series of I'm A Celebrity include Coronation Street's Helen Flanagan, popstar Grace Jones and darts player Eric Bristow.
