I'm A Celebrity 2014 contestants: Gemma Merna to join line up?

Gemma Merna 2

Hollyoaks actress Gemma Merna has become the latest star linked to this year's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here line up.

The blonde beauty took part in the latest (and probably final) series of Slash earlier this year and is up for another challenge.

The soap star - who plays Carmel Valentine on the Channel 4 and E4 series - is set to bow off our screens on the show later this year.

Speaking to the Metro newspaper about entering the I'm A Celebrity jungle in the autumn, Gemma said: "It would be a real challenge, physically and mentally.

"I know some people who have done it and say it was a great experience."

She added: "I loved doing Splash so would never say never."

The new series of I'm A Celeb will begin in November on ITV, with hosts Ant and Dec once again at the helm as another batch of celebs spend the pre-Christmas build up in Australia.

Other names linked to the line up this year include former X Factor judge Tulisa, magician Dynamo, ex Dancing On Ice professional Brianne Delcourt, Corrie actress Michelle Keegan and Olympic diver Tom Daley.
