'I'm A Celebrity' Line-Up: Tinchy Stryder And Newsreader Michael Buerk To Head Down Under For New Series?

With the launch of this year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here’ inching ever closer, two more stars have been linked with a spot on this year’s jungle line-up.


The Mirror have claimed that R&B singer Tinchy Stryder - who has been previously soared to the top of the UK singles chart, thanks to his collaborations with N-Dubz and Amelle Berrabah from Sugababes - is among the stars heading Down Under for the new series of the reality show.

A source tells the newspaper: “Tinchy always has been up for a new challenge and likes the idea of doing the show and getting a new audience for his music and business interests.

“Bosses are hoping he will tell some anecdotes about his A-list friends and also get flirty with some of the single females in there too.”

Surely it can’t be a coincidence that Tinchy’s upcoming third album, ‘360°’, has previously been slated for release at the tail-end of 2014 - right when ‘I’m A Celeb’ is due to finish..?

Tinchy is good friends with former N-Dubz singer Tulisa, who is also among the celebrities rumoured to be taking part, while he also recently made headlines thanks to the release of his unexpected collaboration with the Chuckle Brothers.

Meanwhile, BBC newsreader Michael Buerk has reportedly also signed up for the show, at a rumoured cost of £120,000.

An insider has told The Sun: “Every year I’m A Celebrity try to get at least one name that makes jaws drop and Michael could be the best ever.

"They’ve had to pay through the nose but he’s worth every penny.”

While TV personality Melanie Sykes and ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ star Gemma Collins are both thought to have been confirmed for ‘I’m A Celebrity’, here are some of the other stars who might be taking part in the new series, which kicks off on 16 November...
