I'm A Celebrity 2016: TOWIE's Jess Wright wants to join the line up

TOWIE's Jess Wright is eyeing up a spot on the I'm A Celebrity 2016 line up.

After recently leaving the ITVBe reality series, Jess says she'd definitely take part in I'm A Celebrity this year if asked.

She told The Sun: "It [I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!] would be really challenging and something I would definitely do if I was asked. I hate everything: spiders, rats, snakes, sleeping outdoors...I think I'd be OK, as long as my fears didn't beat me."

Jess certainly wouldn't be the first TOWIE star but could she match brother Mark Wright and Ferne McCann who both made the final?

Of course, that's assuming she can get past this year's 'reality star ban'.

Reports have claimed that I'm A Celebrity producers want more "credible" names for this autumn's show and plan to follow in the footsteps of Strictly Come Dancing, which rarely features 'celebs' from shows like TOWIE or Geordie Shore.

A source previously claimed: “This year I’m A Celeb . . . wants to go back to its roots by signing up more cult favourites from the past and current, newsworthy personnel.

Names linked to the new series include Carol Vorderman, TV and radio presenter Lisa Snowdon, American actress Ayda Field and ex Strictly pros Aliona Vilani and Ola Jordan.

More rumoured campers are Craig Charles, who appeared briefly in a previous series, Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt and footballer Robbie Savage.

Further potential celebrities on the cast include Olympic Boxer Nicola Adams, Olympic gymnast Louis Smith, Absolutely Fabulous' Helen Lederer and a range of soap stars including Neighbours' Olympia Valance and Emmerdale's Fiona Wade and Adam Thomas.

The I'm A Celebrity 2016 start date is set for November on ITV.
