The extreme sportsman, who retired from his field in 2000 after sustaining a serious injury, is reportedly taking on a whole new challenge and heading to the ‘I’m A Celeb’ jungle.
The Mirror have claimed, after Carl was seen arriving at Brisbane airport in the early hours of Sunday morning, that he is the latest star to sign up for the new series of the ITV reality series, which kicks off later this month.
It’s also been reported that he’ll be joined by former ‘’Allo ‘Allo’ actress Vicki Michelle, who was also spotted landing in Australia over the weekend, though neither of them had been rumoured to be taking part in the series prior to their arrival Down Under.
Meanwhile, controversial media personality Josie Cunningham has dropped her biggest hint yet that she’ll be on this year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity’ line-up, after tweeting crude remarks about rumoured campmate, Jake Quickenden.
However, it might be best to take Josie’s remarks with a pinch of salt, she hinted several times on her Twitter page that she would be one of the housemates in this summer’s series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ - particularly after making similar jokes about her attraction to David McIntosh - but ultimately didn’t end up in the house.
Here are some of the other stars who may well be heading into the ‘I’m A Celebrity’ jungle when the new series kicks off on 16 November...
