Speaking to the Daily Mirror, an insider said: "Mel and Gemma are two great names who will be very familiar to ITV viewers. Both of them are not slow in coming forward in conversations and have been photographed in bikinis before, so they tick lots of boxes for the jungle".

'"We're juggling things around but confident that we are going to get a great mix in time for the show".

In recent days,more rumours have circulated and Jake Quickenden, a contestant from this year's X Factor, is said to be heading for the Australian outback.

A separate source told The Sun: "Jake was a big hit on The X Factor and not just because of his voice. He's going to be the male eye candy in the jungle and potential love interest for some of the female stars.

"ITV usually refrains from signing up reality stars unless they're household names. But they've made a special exception for Jake."

Other famous faces thought to be taking part in this year's 'I'm A Celebrity' include Gemma Merna of Hollyoaks fame, former Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan, Dancing On Ice’s Brianne Delcourt and X Factor judge Tulisa.
