According to The Mirror, the trio will enter the jungle after the series begins later this week to stir up drama and tension in camp.
They all appeared on a leaked list of names who The Sun claimed would be taking part on the ITV reality show, but were not later unveiled as official contestants.

Bosses’ decision to keep them in reserve could pay off hugely, as the threesome all have history with one another.
Ferne previously accused Vicky of sleeping with her ex-boyfriend Charlie Sims while they were on a break, calling the former ‘Geordie Shore’ star out for “missing out the fact she slept with Charlie, saying they only kissed” in her autobiography ‘Nothing But The Truth’.
Vicky later branded the ‘TOWIE’ motormouth a “silly little girl” over the comments.
Ferne has also hit out at Spencer in the past, calling him “rude” and a “bit of an arse”.
She told Digital Spy earlier this year: "I've met Spencer Matthews on a number of occasions and he's always been the same - which is really rude.
"And the thing is, you're in the same industry and you think, we both knew who each other is. Maybe he doesn't know who I am. Even if he didn't know, he could still be polite.
"I'm always like, 'Hi, are you alright?' and he's been bit of an arse really. Just like offish and rude and not very friendly, not very warm, cold. Maybe I keep catching him on a bad day," she added.
We can’t wait for the campfire catfights to begin.
‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ launches on Sunday (15 November) at 9pm on ITV.
