'I'm A Celebrity' 2015: Stephanie Davis Joins Line-Up Following 'Hollyoaks' Axe?

Former ‘Hollyoaks’ actress Stephanie Davis has been tipped as one of the stars spicing up the forthcoming series of ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here’.

Stephanie made headlines over the summer when it was reported she’d been ditched by the soap, with her spokesperson confirming her “immediate” axe came after “an incident in which she turned up unfit to work because of alcohol consumption”.

However, ITV bosses look to have thrown Stephanie a lifeline, with reports suggesting she’ll be among the famous line-up heading Down Under next month.

An insider told The Mirror: “Stephanie is hot property and the reality shows have all been desperate to sign her up since her sacking as they know she is mouthy and prone to crazy antics.

“However, Steph is also keen to prove herself and wants viewers to see her stronger side taking part in jungle challenges and interacting with the other contestants.

“She knows ‘I’m A Celeb’ won’t be easy, but thinks the experience will be positive overall.”

Of course, while she’s best known for her antics both on and off screen with ‘Hollyoaks’, some may remember that Stephanie is no stranger to reality television, first getting her big break on the BBC series ‘Over The Rainbow’.

Other stars tipped to be taking part in the upcoming series of ‘I’m A Celeb’ include actress Leslie Ash and TV personality Rustie Lee, while ‘EastEnders’ star Jake Wood has also expressed interest in appearing.

It was also claimed last week that former ‘X Factor’ judge Louis Walsh had turned down a sizeable amount to join the series, so he could focus on his rumoured return to the singing competition in the next few weeks.
