Chris Eubank for I’m A Celebrity?
Boxing legend Chris Eubank has reportedly been lined up to appear in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
The latest series of the reality TV show is due to kick off on Sunday 15 November, although the stars who will be making their way into the Australian jungle haven’t been confirmed yet. Many names have been added into the mix though, with former sportsman Chris the latest. It’s been claimed he has commanded a fee of £200,000, which bosses were apparently happy to pay thanks to his eccentric personality.
“We have been struggling to attract big names in the older celebrity world, so we are delighted to have secured Chris,” an insider told Britain’s The Sun newspaper.
“Chris is not a man known to mince his words, and he often comes out with bizarre rants, making him an ideal candidate for I’m A Celebrity.”
The series sees a group of famous faces camping in the depths of the Australian jungle, where they are deprived of food because they have to earn it during the iconic Bushtucker Trials. These are contests which see the competitors doing gruesome things like eating kangaroo testicles, with Chris expected to triumph in them.
“He’s still in fantastic condition, so watching him take on the Bushtucker Trials will be quite something,” the source added.
“His eccentricity will be something to behold — especially when he is hungry and deprived of sleep as campmates always are in the jungle. We think he is perfect for stirring the pot and are sure he will make sparks fly.”
Chris is known to be travelling somewhere at the moment, as he posted about being on his way to “Dubai” on Twitter. He also knows a thing or two about the reality TV game already, having appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in the past.
Other stars thought to be heading into the jungle this time include Dragons’ Den star Duncan Bannatyne, Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews and Ferne McCann of The Only Way Is Essex.
