Before we know it I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here will be back on our screens and James Arthur is one of the many celebs who was rumoured to be heading into the jungle.


This year’s series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is fast-approaching – which means Winter is officially here! It also means we get to watch some glamorous celebs living in the Australian jungle; sleeping on spider-surrounded hammocks, showering in a freezing cold waterfall, and eating kangeroo balls. Yum.

Although it isn’t official as of yet which famous faces we will see walk across the infamous rickety bridge – there are a fair few rumours!

It was hinted that 2012’s The X Factor winner, James Arthur  may be one of this year’s campmates. There is no doubt that he would be very entertaining in there – with his history of public Twitter spats, we know he’s not afraid to speak his mind, and he’s got a cracking campfire singing voice.

We personally reckon he’d be a great addition to the jungle – he’d look dandy in a cowboy hat and he looks like he can pull off the ‘haven’t washed in a week’ look pretty well!

However, James took to Twitter earlier today to quash the rumours, saying: ‘Sorry guys, I’m 100% not. Focusing on making music.’


He isn’t the only celeb to be in the pipline so far. Rumour has it that last year’s most dramatic contestant, Gemma Collins, may be ready to give it another go! A source told The Sun: ‘Bosses are fascinated to see if she can overcome her fears and stay for the duration. Although Gemma’s last stint in the jungle was a disaster, she made great TV.’

Other celebs on the Im A Celeb hit list so far include, TOWIE‘s Ferne McCann, Made In Chelsea star, Spencer Matthews, pro-dancer and ex Pussycat Doll, Kimberley Wyatt, football sensation, Paul Gascoigne and the cynical comedy genius, Karl Pilkington who was the star of Sky1’s hit show, An Idiot Abroad.

Whoever enters the jungle this year, it’s bound to be as hilarious and as outrageous as ever! It’s also the annual show that reminds us it’s nearly time to start our Christmas shopping – so that’s pretty exciting too.
