I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here show bosses are reportedly keen to get Paul Burrell's former boyfriend in the jungle.

According to the Daily Star newspaper, producers want to get Aussie Greg Pead for this year's show in the hope of spilling on Paul and his relationship with the Royal Family.

A source told the newspaper: "Greg will no doubt have lots of campfire gossip about Burrell and the royals.

"Plus he won't be phased by any of the spiders and snakes."

The news follows Paul - who appeared on I'm A Celebrity himself back in 2004 - opening up about his sexuality this month, revealing he was marrying partner Graham Cooper.

While his ex may be set for the jungle, Paul has reportedly been lined up to appear on Strictly Come Dancing.

The former butler to Princess Diana has apparently been having secret meetings with show bosses.

A show source told the Daily Star on Sunday in the past: “Paul has been keen to do Strictly for years because he loves watching it. He’s now made the final shortlist of star names so he’s thrilled.

“The line-up is finalised around July each year, but it’s pretty much a done deal.”

Paul is quoted by the newspaper as teasing of the rumours: “Let’s just say you could be seeing a whole lot more of me this year.”

He added that taking part in Strictly would be a “wonderful experience” and would jump at the chance to compete.
