Michael Jackson's former doctor Conrad Murray is reportedly in talks to appear in this year's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Dr Conrad was sentenced to four years in jail after being found guilty of involuntary manslaughter over Jackson's death in 2009.

After being released he's now keen to "rebuild his reputation", according to reports.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper this week: "He really believes he can rebuild his reputation after the controversy of the past few years.

"Becoming a practising doctor again is very much part of that plan."

His publicist Max Markson supposedly confirmed the reports to the tabloid.

They quote him as saying: "It is true. We are talking to the show's producers about having Conrad in the jungle for the next show.

"I'm sure everyone will be fascinated to hear what Conrad has to say about his time with Michael.

"He's a doctor, very calm and great with people and he has some extraordinary stories to tell. He'd be a great draw and I'm sure he'd be a fascinating guest for the show."

If Dr Conrad does end up in the jungle we could be in line for one of the most controversial I'm A Celebrity line ups ever.

Earlier this year it was reported that Nigel Farage could also appear in the camp after a rumoured £250,000 after stepping down as leader of UKIP.

As yet however no names are officially confirmed for the upcoming series, which won't begin until November time on ITV.
