Katie Price's best friends Phil Turner and Gary Cockerill are being lined up for this year's 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.'

Katie Price's best pals are set to enter the jungle.

The glamour model - who met her ex-husband Peter Andre when she took part in an earlier series of the show - is set to lose her two best friends Phil Turner and Gary Cockerill for a few weeks, as the pair are being lined up to appear in this year's 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.'

It's believed that Katie - also known as Jordan - will be flying over to Australia to support the pair.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Gary is publicising his autobiography at the end of August and has a TV show coming out, so he will have a lot of celebrity dirt to dish. ITV execs reckon he and Phil will be a great addition to the jungle, and they are comfortable with the format having supported Jordan out there. Their contracts should be secured by September."

Katie went back into the jungle last year for the second time, but quit when she was nominated to do her seventh bush tucker trial.

She eventually left the jungle, adding: "I've done my challenges, people can see I'm genuine. I just don't want to be here any more. It's not about the money. I didn't come back here for that. I really miss my kids."
