I'm A Celebrity 2012 bosses 'want Louise Mensch for the jungle'

I'm a Celebrity 2012

I'm A Celebrity 2012 could see Tory MP Louise Mensch enter the jungle.

The author stood down from the House of Commons this week, saying she wanted to focus on her family life.

According to The Sun however Louise is already wanted by ITV for the upcoming series of I'm A Celeb.

“Louise is outspoken, glamorous, fiercely independent and highly intelligent. She would be fantastic viewing," one source claimed.

The insider told the newspaper: “She is very much on our wish list for this year and we would love to get her on board. But it is very early days and nothing is confirmed yet.”

The outspoken MP was elected in 2010, and made no secret of her opinion on the way women in politics were treated.

She previously complained: “Everything I said was washed away under the fluffy bunny of things.”

Earlier this year the mum hit headlines after admitting to taking class A drugs live on Question Time.

I'm A Celebrity 2012 will air on ITV1 in the autumn.
