Rugby player James Haskell has been tipped for I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here line up.

The sportsman previously played for England and more recently announced he's set to become a professional mixed martial artist.

But rumour has it that James could also be set for another, rather different challenge.

According to The Sun newspaper, James is in 'advanced talks' to join I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here this year.

"Producers think James would be a great addition," a source said. "They have made him a decent offer and are hopeful he will sign up.

Alongside his sporting anecdotes, the source claimed that producers hope he'll spill on his friendship with Prince Harry.

James, married to Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan's daughter Chloe Madley, attended Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding last year.

ITV have yet to officially reveal any names for I'm A Celebrity in 2019, which is expected to begin in November.

However other names rumoured for the line up include Blue and Hollyoaks star Duncan James , football pundit Ian Wright and TV personality Ulrika Jonsson.

Also linked to the show are The Saturdays' singer Frankie Bridge, soap actress Jacqueline Jossa and former England footballer and recent Celebrity Big Brother housemate John Barnes.

Meanwhile, The Chase's Mark Labbett has put himself forward for the jungle after co-star Anne Hegert's appearance last series.

I'm A Celebrity 2019 will be hosted by Ant and Dec who reunite after Holly Willoughby stepped in for Ant last year.

Meanwhile, ITV2 spin-off show Extra Camp will feature a new presenting line up.

Both Joe Swash and Scarlett Moffatt announced they were leaving earlier this month (August).

It's since been rumoured that last year's celebrity campers Emily Atack and John Barrowman could join the show.
