Jennie McAlpine, who plays Fiz Brown on the soap, reportedly took “a lot of persuasion” before eventually deciding to sign up for the show.
The Sun has reported that ‘Corrie’ bosses have reworked the star’s filming schedule to allow for her absence, with an ITV source telling the paper: “Everything has finally fallen into place. She’s bubbly and great fun, so the hope is she’ll be a great addition. The producers are over the moon to get her.”
The new series of ‘I’m A Celeb’ kicks off on Sunday 19 November - two weeks later than its usual launch date - and it’s expected that Ant and Dec will return to their presenting roles.
Joe Swash will also be returning to lead a team of presenters on ITV2 spin-off show ‘Extra Camp’ and he’ll be joined by the reigning Queen Of The Jungle Scarlett Moffatt and Joel Dommett, who finished in second place last year.
