As we inch closer to the ‘I’m A Celebrity’ launch date, reports have suggested that ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ fans could be seeing a familiar face heading Down Under, with Ola Jordan reportedly set to compete for the title of Queen Of The Jungle.

Ola’s name is one that repeatedly crops up in conjunction with appearances on both ‘I’m A Celebrity’ and ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, but it has now been claimed that she’s finally signed on the dotted line for the new series of ITV’s biggest celebrity show.

Speaking about her jungle appearance, an insider tells ITV: Ola is a no-brainer of a signing. She’s well-known, gorgeous and has strong opinions.

“Add difficult challenges and starvation to those qualities and she’s sure to make great telly.”

The professional dancer is best known for her long-serving role on ‘Strictly’, quitting at the end of last year’s series after a decade on the show.

She’s also renowned for speaking her mind about issues related to the show, even when that’s landed her in trouble in the past, and her marriage to fellow ‘Strictly’ alumnus James Jordan.

Reports named Ola as a potential contestant back in September, when it was claimed that ‘I’m A Celebrity’ bosses were torn between her and reigning ‘Strictly’ champion Aliona Vilani, who announced her pregnancy earlier this week.

The new series of ‘I’m A Celebrity’ kicks off on Sunday, 13 November at 9pm on ITV.

Rumoured to be joining Ola in the jungle are TV personality Carol Vorderman, former ‘EastEnders’ actor Larry Lamb and ‘Gogglebox’ star Scarlett Moffatt.
