A show source told The Sun: “We have been struggling to attract big names in the older celebrity world, so we are delighted to have secured Chris.

“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.

“He’s still in fantastic condition, so watching him take on the Bushtucker Trials will be quite something.

“His eccentricity will be something to behold — especially when he is hungry and deprived of sleep as campmates always are in the jungle.”

Chris hinted on Twitter that he was on his way Down Under, following a stop-over in the Middle East, when he tweeted: “I’m on my way to Dubai to see Mrs CE and have some quality time with friends *smile* #lifeisgood.”

Other celebs rumoured to be taking part on the show include ‘EastEnders’ star Jake Wood, Made In Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews and ‘Dragon’s Den’ star Duncan Bannatyne.

Find out exactly who will be entering the jungle when this year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity’ kicks off at 9pm on Sunday 15 November.
