Former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue's boyfriend Kris Smith has reportedly been offered £250,000 to take part in this year's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in November. According to the Daily Star today, bosses hope the ex-Rugby star will "spill the beans" on the couple's romance.

ITV1 bosses hope Kris will take up the offer so he can become a celebrity in his own right rather than being considered 'Mr Dannii Minogue.'

The pair have reportedly had relationship problems recently after the birth of their new child Ethan, who turned one earlier this year. It was said back in May that the couple had split, but while this was denied by the Aussie reality star, the two have been taking part in a 'trial separation'.

Kris admitted: “Work can push you apart.”

A source told the newspaper: “People have seen plenty of photos of Kris but few really know him. He’s always referred to as Dannii’s boyfriend and he thinks doing I’m A Celebrity would be a good chance to show everyone who he really is.

“He would be great eye candy for the female viewers, too.”

Others tipped to enter the jungle include Big Brother star Imogen Thomas, US teen star Lindsay Lohan’s ex Aaron Carter and X Factor twins Jedward.
