I'm A Celebrity 2018: Megan McKenna tipped to join line up

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Reality star Megan McKenna has been tipped to join the I'm A Celebrity line up.

The former Celebrity Big Brother housemate and TOWIE regular has been linked to the new series.

It's claimed she's in 'last minute talks' to take part and head to Australia.

"It’s looking promising. Producers are keen to get Megan on board..." a source told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper. "If it takes too long to get a deal signed she will be one of the late arrivals in camp.

“Let’s face it – she will be sensational in the jungle shower.”

Megan joins a supposedly leaked list of I'm A Celebrity 2018 contestants which was revealed at the weekend.

It includes EastEnders actor Rita Simons, TV presenter Nick Knowles, The Inbetweeners star Emily Atack and X Factor's Fleur East.

Joining them are The Vamps singer James McVey, The Chase's 'The Governess' Anne Hegerty, Football manager Harry Redknapp, Coronation Street's Sair Khan and Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer.

However at least three further names are expected to join them.

Alongside Megan they might include Holby City actress Rosie Marcel and Made In Chelsea's Jamie Laing.

Meanwhile, it'll be Holly Willoughby who hosts this year's series alongside Dec.

Dec's usual co-host Ant stepped down from TV commitments earlier this year and won't not be back on TV until 2019 after seeking treatment in rehab.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Holly said: “I couldn’t be more excited to have been asked to stand alongside Dec for the next jungle adventure. I love Ant and want to send him my best wishes and support for a continued recovery. These are big shoes, not to fill, but just to keep warm for a little bit... "

I'm A Celebrity 2018 begins this Sunday night at 9PM on ITV.
