Coronation Street actress Jennie McAlpine is the latest star to join the rumoured line-up for this year’s series of I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!

The jungle-based reality show will return to ITV in a few weeks’ time as a fresh batch of contestants brave the stomach-churning camp challenges.

A show insider told the Sun newspaper that the actress, who plays Fiz Brown in the channel’s flagship soap, has “been on the wishlist for some time” and “after a lot of persuasion, she’s agreed to take part this year”.

But a spokesman for ITV said the rumour is “all just speculation” and the full line-up will be announced “soon”.

The broadcaster also has yet to officially confirm whether veteran presenters Ant and Dec will return.

As suspense rises ahead of this year’s series, here are some of the other stars who have been tipped for a slot on the show:
