I'm A Celebrity 2016: Cheryl's ex Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini to join line up?


Cheryl's ex Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini could be about to join the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here line up.

Jean-Bernard - also known simply as 'JB' - is apparently keen to build a TV career for himself and a spot on the I'm A Celebrity line up could be the way to go.

It's been claimed that the French restaurateur is in talks to get onto an ITV show, although I'm A Celeb might not necessarily be the one.

An insider told Now magazine this week: “He’d really like to become a UK TV personality. When he was with Cheryl he shunned the limelight but now he wants to build up his reputation. He wants to get himself on screen and is in talks to get onto a big ITV show.

“I’m sure the guys behind I’m a Celebrity would love to have him on board and JB may consider that, but there’s also talk of a Piers Morgan-style big interview.”

Of course the news may be bad for Cheryl, who is already having to deal with former X Factor finalist Katie Waissel complaining about her in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

A source added: “JB is a businessman and always looking for different opportunities, but whether Cheryl would be very keen on the idea is doubtful – after all, it hasn’t been the easiest of breakups and the pair are technically still married.”

But it's not just I'm A Celeb that we could see Jean-Bernard end up on, as he's also been linked to Made In Chelsea after getting involved in SW3's relationship drama.

Nicola and JB were spotted together amid rumours that she had split up from Alex.

Speaking to The Sun this week, current Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing said it would be "amazing" to get JB to appear in the latest series.

“It would be such a good storyline if we got JB on the show with Nicola," he said. “Nicola’s single so she should just go for it.

“It’s fair enough, he’s a good looking guy.”
