I'm A Celebrity 2012: Corrie's Ryan Thomas set for the jungle

I'm a Celebrity 2011

Corrie star Ryan Thomas is being lined up to appear on this year's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Hiere.

The hunky soap star has reportedly been recruited by show bosses to "shake up" the jungle this winter.

According to The Sun, Ryan - who plays Jason Grimshaw on the ITV1 soap - is "seriously considering" an offer from show bosses.

“Ryan was really pleased to be approached. He watched Antony [Cotton] in the jungle last year and talked to him about it afterwards," a supposed pal told the newspaper.

The friend added: “It’s a great opportunity for someone like Ryan who gets on with most people and isn’t afraid of a challenge. But it is a big decision so at the moment he is weighing up his options before taking things any further.”

With Ryan still filming for the soap, he'll have to get the go-head from Corrie bosses before entering, but we're sure ITV won't mind.

An insider told the newspaper: “Ryan is good looking, charismatic and popular with viewers so he would be a fantastic signing for the jungle.

“If he decides to come on board, we’ll definitely be on the hunt for some girls that he might have some good chemistry with.”

I'm A Celebrity airs from November on ITV1.
