Leslie Ash could be about to make her return to the small screen, with an appearance on ‘I’m A Celebrity’, following an 11-year battle with her health.

Back in 2004, Leslie was struck down with a strain of the MRSA superbug, but recently revealed the happy news that she was off medication, and was able to walk without the use of a stick for the first time in years.

It has now been claimed that she’s hoping to return to television, with reports suggesting she’s in talks with producers of ‘I’m A Celebrity’ to enter the jungle later this year.

An insider tells The Sun: “While Leslie can walk again, she still sometimes uses a stick because of some balance issues which might rule her out of some challenges.

“Bosses are currently seeing people about this year’s series and Leslie would be a great contestant if it could be made to work.”

If Leslie does become one of this year’s campmates, she could well be joined by ‘EastEnders’ actor Jake Wood, famous for playing Max Branning in the BBC soap.

After wowing us all with his snake-hips on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ last year, Jake recently spoke publicly about his desire to enter ‘I’m A Celebrity’, and with a planned break from ‘EastEnders’ coming up, we definitely think he’d be a great contestant.

Other stars to have been rumoured include Jamelia, Spencer Matthews and Caitlyn Jenner, who previously appeared on the US version of the show, when she was still known to the public as Bruce.
