Michelle Keegan is said to be in the running for the next series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here.

Michelle, who recently filmed her final scenes as murder victim Tina McIntyre for Coronation Street - is said to have had meetings with I'm a Celebrity… producers, who want her to appear on the show, reports the Daily Star.

Bookers for the show are preparing to make Michelle - who is engaged to former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright - a big money offer to join the reality TV show, according to the newspaper.

Producers are reportedly desperate to get the stunning actress into the jungle - and under the famous jungle shower - to boost the ratings as well as keep her from appearing on BBC rival Strictly Come Dancing.

BBC bosses are also said to be interested in getting the 26-year-old actress to strut her stuff on the Strictly dance floor but they'd have to compete with ITV, who reportedly want Michelle and Mark to become the new TV power couple.

The newspaper also reports that Olympic diver Tom Daley will also be heading into the jungle.

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here will return in the autumn on ITV.
