The latest contestant to be rumoured to appear on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is former footballer Paul Gascoigne, as a flurry of bets come in.
The popular show is set to return to our screens later this month but the celebrity line-up has not yet been announced.
Stars including Una Healy, Jade Thirlwall and Richard Madeley are tipped to be setting up home in Gwrych Castle in Wales – but will Gazza be joining them?
A BestofBets.com spokesperson said: “It’s well known that Gazza has been close to signing up to the hit show previously but because of concerns that he hasn’t been in the best shape, he’s had to back out. But in the last 24 hours, his odds has taken a nose-dive from 14/1 down to as short as 5/2, so this may well be the year when Gazza takes on Wales.
“No doubt that Gazza is a big attraction for producers, as he has been for the last few years, but the ex-England, Spurs and Rangers star would most definitely provide some great entertainment, as he did on the Italian version of the hit show.”
I’m A Celeb will be returning to Wales for the second year in a row due to coronavirus restrictions.
ITV have been playing teaser adverts for the past couple of weeks, confirming that the show will return this month.
Ant and Dec have been dressed as knights as they revealed they would be returning to Wales for the 2021 series.
During the ads the pair discussed new trial ideas for the upcoming series.
They joked about eating ‘two pig’s testicles’ instead of the usual one in the eating trials, with other trials expected to be tougher than ever.
The end of the trailer said: “Here it shall be more gruelling than ever.”
The official start date is thought to be Sunday, November 21.
Louise Redknapp is one of the top celebrities to be entering the castle with odds of 2/1.
Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall is rumoured to be going into the castle
Coming in at second most likely to be on the next series is ex-Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing with odds of 5/2 and then Love Island’s Maura Higgins at 7/2.
Thoughts that Maura will be joining the show come after her recent break up from her boyfriend Strictly Come Dancing pro Giovanni Pernice.
Coming in at the least likely to take on the castle is radio host Nick Grimshaw along with presenter Maya Jama.
This year’s series will be the 21st season with it being renewed until at least 2022.
There are usually around 22 episode each series which would mean the king or queen of the castle will be announced in December some time before Christmas.
Last year Giovanna Fletcher was crowned the winner on December 7 but the show started slightly earlier on November 15, so this year might run on a bit longer.
