With four months to go until it is expected to air, speculation is rife surrounding the expected line-up for this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get me out of Here.

Last year’s series of the ITV reality competition saw the likes of Sam Thompson, Fred Sirieix, Tony Bellew and Nigel Farage enter the Australian jungle.

Made in Chelsea star Sam, 31, emerged as the King of the Jungle, putting to bed the 23rd series of the show, which has been on air since December 2023.

With the next series airing in November 2024, this year’s batch of celebrities will be in in talks with ITV, signing the dotted line, and packing their bags for the jungle.

Potential contestants include the usual range of reality TV stars, soap actors and politicians. Well, following July 4’s complete Tory wipeout, there’ll be a lot of out-of-work MPs looking to make a quick buck and save face.

Here’s Metro.co.uk’s run-down of potential I’m A Celebrity 2024 campmates.

She’s rumoured to have split with long-term partner Sam Thompson, who won last year’s I’m A Celebrity – but could she appear in the jungle herself?

The Made In Chelsea star and former Strictly contestant, 27, has previously addressed the possibility of taking to the jungle, saying: ‘Who knows, you never know what’s going to happen,’ she said during an interview on Radio 2.

‘I don’t know if I could follow his crowning. How could I ever follow that?’ she admitted, talking about Sam’s win.

Coronation Street icon Helen Worth, 73, is going to have a lot of time on her hands soon, with her exit as Gail Platt imminent.

After five decades as a Weatherfield resident, bookmakers have been calculating the odds of Helen’s next move – suggesting that a stint on either Strictly or I’m a Celeb is in the actress’s future.

The Sun have reported that the odds of her jetting off to Australia are at 10/1, with Strictly and Celebrity Big Brother also being considered.

Richard Gadd

Baby Reindeer creator and star Richard Gadd, 35, has been tipped to make the move into reality TV, with OLBH reporting odds of 6/1 of an appearance on this year’s I’m A Celebrity or Strictly.

However, an expert has warned against Richard taking to the jungle, saying: ‘Gadd and Netflix are now mired in legal red tape over Baby Reindeer and its depiction of being a true story.

‘I’m a Celebrity always involves controversial, off-the-cuff remarks and no matter how much he tries, Gadd won’t be able to dodge questions from his celebrity jungle-mates,’ Andy Barr, co-founder and head of digital PR agency 10 Yetis told Metro.co.uk.

Giovanni Pernice

Strictly pro Giovanni Pernice, 33, has had a tough year since the controversy of 2023’s Strictly. Crashing out of the competition following partner Amanda Abbington decided to pull out, he suddenly found himself facing a PR storm amid claims of a Strictly feud and accusations of bullying.

If reports are to be believed, ITV are determined to score Giovanni for this year’s I’m A Celeb.

A source told The Sun: ‘Giovanni would be prefect for the jungle. ITV bosses have wanted him for years and now he is finally free. Everyone is really eager to get him on board – he really would be ideal for those jungle showers.’

Phillip Schofield

Rumours have been spiralling that the disgraced This Morning Presenter, 62, is planning his TV comeback.

Suggestions that Phillip could appear in this year’s I’m A Celebrity emerged as he was seen laughing and joking while out for dinner with host Dec Donnelly earlier this year.

A source told OK! of Phillip’s potential plans, saying: ‘Phillip is not the same since being away from TV. It’s what he’s done all his life and all he’s ever wanted to do. There is talk that Ant and Dec are keen to get him on I’m A Celeb.’

The entire Tory cabinet

This election night’s bloodbath saw 11 former cabinet members lose their seats, including Jacob Rees-Mogg, former Prime Minister Liz Truss and future leadership contender Penny Mordaunt.

Given the success of both Nigel Farage and Matt Hancock on the show – not to mention the attention-grabbing headlines it scored for ITV – many now-displaced politicians may be making a beeline for the jungle.

Among these names is Suella Braverman, who somehow managed to keep her seat, but was already rumoured to be eyeing a move to Australia as early as March this year. Makes a change from looking up flights to Rwanda, at least.

Alex Beresford

Good Morning Britain weatherman Alex Beresford was a rumoured name for last year’s jungle line up, before appearing on the BBC’s Celebrity Race Across the World instead.

However, he has expressed an interest in heading into camp, telling The Mirror: ‘Out of all the shows I would love to do, I would love to do the jungle.’

Will Alex get his wish this year?
