Capital FM DJ Roman Kemp has reportedly signed up to brave the Australian outback on I'm A Celebrity 2019.

Roman presents the hit music station's breakfast slot alongside Vick Hope and Sonny Jay.

However, it seems he's about to take a break from his day job so he can face the Bushtucker Trials on ITV's jungle reality format.

According to The Sun, Roman has informed Capital bosses that he will be taking his annual holiday to free himself up for a trip Down Under.

Producers apparently believe Roman will have countless tales to share with his campmates thanks to his celebrity connections.

"Roman is a fun, loquacious young star and super-well-connected," the newspaper's source commented.

"He must have countless showbiz tales about his pals."

The 26-year-old may even open up about his own famous family members.

He is the son of Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp and singer Shirlie Holliman, and the godson of her Wham! bandmate George Michael.

"If he chose to reminisce about George, that could be quite emotional," the mole added.

News of Roman's possible involvement came as Coronation Street's Lucy Fallon was linked to the show.

The Bethany Platt actress quickly denied the claims on her Instagram page.

This week, I'm A Celeb hosts Ant and Dec attended their first production meeting for the new series - where they found out who's in the line-up.

Other rumoured contestants include Hollyoaks' Jennifer Metcalfe, TV host Ulrika Jonsson and rugby star James Haskell.

Whoever does appear will have picked a good time to take part, after the show drew its highest ratings ever last year.

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returns to our screens in November as usual.
