Stephanie Davis to join I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Stephanie Davis is set to join 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' for the new series.

The former 'Hollyoaks' star, who was sacked from the Channel 4 soap earlier this year following issues with her behaviour, is being lined up to join the reality TV show based in the heart of the Australian jungle later this year.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Stephanie is hot property and the reality shows have all been desperate to sign her up since her sacking as they know she is mouthy and prone to crazy antics."

However, the 22-year-old actress won't be spending the whole time lapping up the sun in her skimpy bikini as she's keen to get stuck into the infamous Bushtucker Trials.

The insider added: "Steph is also keen to prove herself and wants viewers to see her stronger side taking part in jungle challenges and interacting with the other contestants.

"She knows 'I'm A Celeb...' won't be easy, but thinks the experience will be positive overall."

The brunette beauty was sacked from 'Hollyoaks', in which she portrayed feisty Sinead O'Connor for five years, in August after she was caught skipping work and arriving to set late allegedly under the influence of alcohol.

However, Stephanie has since insisted it was her decision to bow out of the soap because she needed a "break."

She said previously: "It was ultimately my choice to leave! I just walked and then the producers told me if I didn't come back they'd have no option but to terminate my contract.

"I regret the way it ended - I probably should have gone about it in a better way, but I was desperate for a break."

A spokesman for the show clarified her exit came following a number of warnings about her attendance.
