There's a crisis with the I'm A Celebrity 2014 line up after two of the planned stars pulled out.

With just a week to go until the launch show in Australia, it seems as though some stars have got cold feet.

Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher and TV chef Rustie Lee have both decided against a stint in the jungle.

"The casting directors at ITV work very hard to get the mix of jungle celebs right, and so this is very disappointing when people drop out," a source said today. "And it means that despite months of planning, they have to rush to draft in replacement celebs and fly them to Australia in time for the show launch. "

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday newspaper, the supposed insider added: “It can be a mad scramble, as tickets need to be rebooked for both the celebs and the families who fly out to support them while they are in the jungle.

“And it is definitely a headache the show team can do without.”

Meanwhile, 'NHS boob job girl' Josie Cunningham has been ruled out as she doesn't have a passport.

"Josie saw I’m A Celebrity as the chance of a lifetime, but now there’s absolutely no chance she’ll be able to get on it," a source said. “ITV really aren’t best pleased with her at the moment.”

Some of the show's last minute signings are said to include X Factor's Jake Quickenden, who was booted out of the ITV show just last month.

Other stars rumoured to be entering the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2014 jungle this year include TOWIE's Gemma Collins, Hollyoaks' actress Gemma Merna and TV presenter Melanie Sykes.

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2014 starts November 16 on ITV.
