I'm A Celebrity 2022 - all the stars rumoured to enter the jungle next month

As the nights are getting colder, you wouldn't be blamed for wanting to spend your weekend evenings curled up on the sofa.

And with an impressive host of TV on our screens at the moment, from Strictly to The Masked Dancer, there's plenty to see you through the colder months.

Fans of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here will also be delighted to know the hit show returns next month, and will take place in the Australian jungle for the first time in two years.

During 2020 and 2021, the show was filmed in Wales as a result of the pandemic, because international travel was restricted, Wales Online reports.

DJ Chris Moyles and former Love Islander Olivia Attwood have already been announced for their stint in the jungle.

But who else might be touching down in Australia soon? Here's a round-up of all the celebs rumoured to be taking part.

Scarlette Douglas

The Place in the Sun presenter, 35, is the latest celebrity rumoured to be joining the cast. A TV insider told The Sun : “Scarlette has what it takes to become a big household name like Stacey Solomon and Joel Dommett after her time in the Jungle.

“She has proved to be a hit amongst viewers following the success of her property shows and there is no doubt that she will be inundated with offers for more telly gigs.”

Mike Tindall

2022 has been packed full of royal news - so much so that I'm A Celebrity producers have reportedly been keen to sign former England rugby player and Zara Tindall's husband, Mike Tindall.

The 44-year-old is no stranger to appearing on reality shows. In 2015, he took part in Channel 4 winter sports show The Jump , in which he participated in a number of ski jumping competitions.

Sue Cleaver

Coronation Street star Sue is also predicted to join this year's host of celebs. If she decides to go ahead with it, she would follow in the footsteps of fellow Corrie stars Simon Gregson, Andy Whyment and Jennie McAlpine.

In the popular ITV soap-opera, Sue, 59, has played Eileen Grimshaw since 2000. Since then, she has been involved in some of the programme's biggest storylines.

Charlene White

I'm A Celebrity is known for attracting numerous journalists to the campsite over the years and 2022 is set to be no different, as ITV newsreader and Loose Women star Charlene White is reportedly being eyed for a role. She would be following in the footsteps of the likes of Louise Minchin, Michael Buerk and Kate Garraway.

In early October, an ITV source told The Sun : “Charlene is a great signing for the show. She’s got some strong opinions, but is really personable and will be good value around the Aussie campfire.

"They hope her journalistic background means she will eke out some illuminating conversations from her campmates, which shouldn’t be hard given some of the people she’ll be sleeping in a bunk next to."

Babatunde Aléshé

Known for appearing on Celebrity Gogglebox alongside comedian and friend Mo Gilligan, Babatunde is rumoured to come into his own on this year's I'm A Celebrity.

Aside from sitting on the sofa with Mo, the comedian has also appeared on Romesh Ranganathan’s reboot of The Weakest Link, (BBC), Guessable (Comedy Central), The Stand Up Sketch Show (ITV2), Jonathan Ross Stand Up Club (ITV1), Don’t Hate the Playaz (ITV2) and Stand Up to Cancer (Channel 4).

Seann Walsh

Comedian Seann Walsh, who is known for his controversial appearance on Strictly Come Dancing, is apparently signed up for this year's I'm A Celebrity.

In 2018, Seann and his Strictly dance partner Katya Jones caused a stir when they were caught by photographers kissing. Katya was married at the time and Seann was in a long-term relationship with actress Rebecca Humphries, so the kiss became headline news in the tabloids.

ITV producers are hoping he will talk about the scandal during his time in the jungle, according to The Sun.

Boy George

The Culture Club popstar is the first name the tabloids have heavily linked to the new series in Australia. According to The Sun, the 80s pop icon has finally agreed to take part after being approached several times before.

The 61-year-old singer, whose real name is George O'Dowd, is also rumoured to have a negotiated a special deal with the producers for the show’s infamous eating challenges, which means he won’t have to eat any meat, as he is a vegan.

Tom Daley

One of the biggest rumoured signings for the new series is British diver Tom Daley. Earlier this year, it was reported that the 28-year-old, who won his first gold medal at last year's Olympics, was offered both Strictly Come Dancing and I'm A Celebrity.

So, with no Strictly appearance, could this be the year he faces the jungle?
