I’m A Celebrity 2020 cast: Latest line-up rumours from Vernon Kay to Strictly’s AJ Pritchard – The Sun

I’M A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here! is still going ahead in 2020 despite the outbreak of coronavirus.

Famous names are starting to be touted around and we have all the details about the potential line-up for the next series.

Which stars are rumoured to appear on I'm A Celebrity 2020?

Vernon Kay

Vernon Kay is said to have signed a staggering £250k deal to appear on I'm A Celebrity in 2020.

The 46-year-old star has been approached several times in the past, but ITV bosses have only just managed to sign him up.

Producers are thrilled to have snapped him up for a quarter of a million pounds, with the TV presenter due to appear on the reality show while his wife Tess Daly presents Strictly Come Dancing in the UK.

An insider told The Mirror: "Everyone’s so pleased to have Vernon on board, he’s a lovely guy, full of down-to-earth northern charm and perfect for the show."

Beverley Callard

Coronation Street star Beverly Callard has reportedly signed on to star in the 2020 series.

Bev plays feisty barmaid Liz McDonald in the ITV soap.

Speaking to The Mirror, sources alleged that show bosses were "thrilled when Bev said yes".

"She is such a well-loved ITV face," the insider added.

Christine Quinn

Following the HUGE success of Selling Sunset, bookies now think that Christine will be signed up by ITV.

The blonde bombshell has been the biggest hit of the show so producers will want to snap her up.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Christine could be about to swap the Hollywood Hills for a haunted Welsh castle if the latest odds are anything to go by with an I'm A Celeb stint potentially on the cards."

Kieran Hayler

Katie Price's ex Kieran claims he's in talks for I'm A Celeb. The former stripper, 33, says he would "love" to be part of the line-up. Speaking about the chance of signing up to the 2020 series, Kieran told this week's New! magazine: "I’d love to go on I’m A Celeb. I think there have been talks but I don’t know for sure "I’d love to do it because I’m into the outdoors anyway so for me it would be really cool. I think it’s just the eating stuff I’d be a bit rubbish at – and it’s closer to home now I’ve heard!"

Andi Peters

TV legend Andi is being touted by the bookies to appear on I'm A Celebrity. It was after the presenter gave a massive clue on Good Morning Britain by filming his segments from a Go Ape activity centre. He also had the I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! theme song playing in the background.

Tamzin Outhwaite

Tamzin, 49, has been a top target for BBC’s Strictly this year, but seems to have opted for I'm A Celeb. A source said: “It’s early days with Tamzin but she’s someone producers have discussed going to Oz in the autumn — and she’s told pals she is 100 per cent not taking part in Strictly. The former EastEnders star, 49, announced in 2019 she was leaving the show.

AJ Pritchard

The dancing pro sensationally quit Strictly in March 2020. He wouldn't normally be free during the time that I'm A Celeb runs due to his Strictly commitments. But for the 2020 show he is free as a bird.

John Bercow

Mr Bercow, 56, signed off as Speaker in 2019 after ten years, earning around £1.4 million. Last year, Mr Bercow's spokesman told the Mirror he had no plans to join Ant and Dec in the Australian jungle. However, with no work on at the moment, he may change his mind. According to the Mirror he had priced himself out of the show by demanding £1million. His wife Sally Bercow made an appearance on Big Brother in 2011 so he may be tempted to follow in her reality show footsteps.

Baga Chipz

Baga Chipz has proved to be a massive personality, after appearing on Drag Race UK and Celebrity MasterChef (briefly). The Walthamstow star describes herself as "common as muck" and fans would love to see her navigate the jungle. Although her cooking skills weren't up to much, she'd definitely bring some life into the line up.

Charles Ingram

Charles has been back in the press in 2020 following the ITV show Quiz. The series revisited his cheating scandal on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. The former army major has always strongly denied the allegations, so could use I'm A Celeb to clear his name.

Matt Baker

Matt is a free man at the moment, having quit The One Show. He will be on the look out for his next project. It is now rumoured he will be heading for the jungle in 2020.

Joe Sugg

After the success of Strictly 2018, Joe has become quite the household name. He is now tipped to go into the jungle, due to his popularity. He also has roots in Oz due to his girlfriend Dianne Buswell.

Eric Cantona

The Sun exclusively revealed that football legend Eric is the name at the top of ITV's wish list for the new series. The eccentric Manchester United idol is known for bizarre comments and behaviour and TV chiefs think he would be great to watch tackling bugs and critters in the jungle. Show producer Richard Cowles named the 53-year-old Frenchman when asked who he is most eager to hire. He said: “I just like the idea of Eric Cantona talking in French and coming up with really profound things. That would be good.” Mr Cowles, speaking at a Royal Television Society talk in Birmingham also said he would love to bag ex-United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, 78, but added: “That will never happen.”

When will I'm A Celebrity 2020 air on ITV?

On August 7, 2020, The Sun exclusively revealed that I'm A Celebrity was relocating from an Oz jungle to a British castle. ITV producers took the decision after lockdown restrictions over coronavirus in Australia made planning the usual show impossible, with borders in the country shut down. Kevin Lygo, ITV’s Director of Television explained: “We announced last week that we were doing all we could to make the series and I’m thrilled that we can bring the show to viewers, albeit not in the jungle. "We have a great team both on and off screen and I know they will produce a hugely entertaining series”. The first series in 2002 saw Tony Blackburn crowned King of the Jungle.

Who won I'm A Celebrity 2019?

The reigning Queen of the Jungle is Jacqueline Jossa after she was crowned the winner of I'm A Celebrity. Speaking about winning the show she said "I can't believe I've done all that stuff." In an emotional moment, she said that she felt the show had been a "turning point" in her life. Corrie actor Andy Whyment was runner-up and DJ Roman Kemp placed third.
