Helen Flanagan hints at I'm A Celebrity All Stars stint as she teases 'exciting' project

Helen Flanagan has teased she has an 'exciting secret' project in the work - amid rumours she's returning to I'm A Celebrity.

The Coronation Street star was one of the standout celebrities on the ITV jungle show when she signed up for it the first time back over a decade ago. Since then reports have emerged that she will be heading back to the jungle for a very special All Stars version, expected to fronted by much-loved hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly.

The All Stars version is set to take place in South Africa soon, with Helen teasing to The Mirror that she has a big project in the works that she is having to keep close to her chest, as she vowed the announcement is "really exciting".

Speaking exclusively to The Mirror, she said: "I've got something really exciting coming up, but unfortunately I can't actually say what it is. But I'm working on something really, really exciting.

"Everything's just getting together, but should be coming next year so that's what I'm trying to focus on as well."

Helen is said to be an "absolute catch" for the show, but she was thought to be initially worried about being away from her kids.

"Helen has been offered pretty much every reality TV show going in recent years, including Strictly, but nothing has felt quite right - until now," a source revealed to Closer recently of her upcoming stint on the show.

"She absolutely adored her time there and she is fully aware that it transformed her into an even bigger star. I'm A Celeb! was her happy place, which is why she decided to say yes. She thinks it's finally time to start putting herself out there a bit more."

The all-stars series is expected to be filmed in South Africa's Kruger National Park, where famous faces from previous series will reunite with the likes of Georgia Toffolo, Carol Vorderman, Dean Gaffney, Jordan Banjo and Gillian McKeith all names being thrown in the ring.

The show could be pre-recorded in South Africa, with the familiar faces returning to face the bushtucker trials, dingo dollar challenges and living off rations for up to three weeks as they did before.
