X Factor’s Tracy Leanne Jefford wants to join I’m A Celebrity cast


X Factor’s Tracy Leanne Jefford has revealed hopes of joining I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

Tracy wants to follow in the footsteps of Jake Quickenden, who left The X Factor in 2014 to enter the jungle just weeks later.

Yesterday evening saw the second half of the latest round of live shows of The X Factor 2017 with the new format.

The contestants this year are performing in separate nights in their categories and on Sunday evening the Overs and Girls were in the spotlight.

And it was Tracy Leanne Jefford Dean who was next to be voted off the show, following in the footsteps of Leon Mallet who was eliminated on Saturday night following the Boys and Groups’ performances.

Chatting today (Monday), Tracy announced her hopes for a brand new reality TV appearance.

“What’ I’m going to say is that there’s two weeks left before we go into the jungle,” she told ITV’s Lorraine. “Call me up! I’ll be ready.”

Tracy added: “I’d do all [the challenges]. My biggest phobia is rats but I’ll just pretend they’re not there and let them run all over me.”

While no names are official just yet, there have been quite a number of I’m A Celeb line up rumours .

With less than two weeks to go until the new series launches, names on the rumoured IAC cast for 2017 range from Goggleboxer Sandra Martin to Ex-Wimbledon Tennis champ Boris Becker.

Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby, The Saturdays’ singer Vanessa White, Hollyoaks hunk Jamie Lomas, former rugby player Ben Cohen MBE, Tattoo Fixers star Paisley Billings and The Only Way Is Essex’s Kate Wright have all been linked to the line up.

Made In Chelsea’s Georgia Toffolo is also said to have signed up, alongside Coronation Street actress Jennie McAlpine.

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here launches on November 19 on ITV.
