Seann Walsh to sign up for I’m A Celebrity after Strictly exit?

Seann Walsh has been tipped to swap the Strictly ballroom for the I’m A Celebrity jungle.


The weekend saw Strictly Come Dancing’s remaining celebrity and pro couples dance one more time before the judges scored and fans voted. In the bottom two dance off, Graeme Swann and Seann Walsh had to perform again and it was Seann who left.

It was a unanimous decision from the judges who all voted to keep Graeme in the competition, seeing Seann leave after a second time in the dance off.

Speaking about his exit on Strictly last night, Seann said: “It’s an absolute miracle that I’ve gotten this far. I’ve been Neo from The Matrix, I’ve been used as a step of steps and even Craig a few weeks ago called me hot, it’s been a dream come true and that’s because of [Katya].”

However Seann may not be off our TVs for long.

With all the controversy surrounding his kiss with pro partner Katya Jones, he’s now been tipped for a shock spot on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

A major figure in this year’s Strictly storm, Seann is now just a 5/1 shot with bookmakers to head Down Under.


Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Seann’s Strictly exit has opened the door for an I’m a Celeb appearance and at this stage, it’s not something we’re ruling out.”

I’m A Celebrity will launch on ITV in November.

Other names rumoured include football manager Harry Redknapp, The Chase’s Anne Hegerty, aka The Governess, and Corrie’s Sair Khan.


More rumoured names are Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer and Holby City actress Rosie Marcel, plus Made In Chelsea’s Jamie Laing and Inbetweeners star Emily Atack, as well as X Factor singer Fleur East and TV presenter Nick Knowles.

Meanwhile, Holly Willoughby will join Dec as this year’s co-host after Ant McPartlin stepped down from TV commitments earlier this year until 2019 after seeking treatment in rehab.
