Louise Minchin rumoured for I'm A Celebrity as she leaves BBC Breakfast

By Megan Nisbet

Louise Minchin has reportedly been approached for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Of Here! 2021.

Rumours for the I'm A Celeb line-up have been rife after ITV confirmed the series would return to Gwrych Castle in Wales for the second time.

And following Louise's last day on BBC Breakfast, which saw co-host Dan Walker and the rest of the team give her an emotional send off after 20 years on the show, it looks like Louise could be heading to Abergele this autumn.

If true, Louise would be following in the footsteps of her BBC colleague Victoria Derbyshire, who joined campmates in Wales in 2020.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "There's a long tradition of reality TV shows targeting news presenters and I'm A Celebrity is no different.

"Victoria Derbyshire was on the show before and proved very popular with viewers.

"ITV are hoping they can do the same with Louise and have approached her about coming on board."

Louise's last day on the BBC Breakfast show aired today [Wednesday, September 15].

BBC viewers tuned into an emotional show that saw celebrities, family and colleagues wish Louise well as they waved goodbye to the presenter who's been on their screens since 2001.

Louise was reduced to tears on air following former co-host Bill Turnbull's heartfelt message, but not before she was locked out of the building by BBC who cancelled her pass. You can read more on this here.

Other celebrities rumoured to be heading to the castle this year include Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall, Love Island's Liberty Poole and EastEnders star Jake Wood.
