Could she be heading down under?

Reality TV is having a serious moment – from Love Island to Bake Off, everyone is talking unscripted telly.

And with winter in sight, we’re all eagerly anticipating the return of the OG – I’m A Celeb.

Yes, the long-time favourite returns to our screens in November and rumours of celebrities who could be taking part have been spreading for weeks.

Well, it looks like I’m A Celeb has made their first official offer with reports suggesting that Fleur East will be heading down under.

Fleur, who came second to Ben Haenow on The X Factor in 2014, is said to be in “advanced talks” with I’m A Celeb bosses to join this year’s lineup.

“Fleur was one of the most loved X Factor contestants in recent years, so she is bound to be a hit with audiences,” a source told The Sun.

“She’s part of the ITV family. The relationship is already there and they are just negotiating a deal at the moment.”

According to reports, Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway, Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer and Inbetweeners star Emily Atack are all rumoured to be potential campmates on this year’s show.

However, we’ll have to wait another month or so before anything is confirmed.
