Imogen Thomas has been offered a huge sum to appear on this year's 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' as producers think she will be great for viewing figures after being gagged about her affair with a married Premiership footballer
Imogen Thomas has been offered a huge sum to appear on this year's 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The former 'Big Brother' star - who has hit the headlines in recent weeks after it was revealed she had an affair with a married Premiership footballer, whose identity remains a secret after he obtained an injunction to keep her silent - is top of the wish list for the ITV1 show as producers think she will be great for viewing figures, so will reportedly pay her a six-figure sum.
The show airs in November and bosses want to sign her in the hope the gagging order will be overthrown and she can discuss the affair in detail.
Her agent Max Clifford confirmed the deal, saying: "It would be interesting to see what comes out in the jungle."
A source added to The Sun newspaper: "It could spark a national guessing game and make this year's series the most talked about yet."
Imogen - who is forbidden from saying anything about her former lover, including his age, playing position and the clubs he has played for - has previously said she would like to appear in the programme as she thinks it would be a huge boost for her career.
She said: "I'd love to go in. I'd wear a bikini every day and make sure I took sexy showers like Myleene Klass did. That's all she did - and it worked!"
Imogen could be joined in the jungle by Jedward after the duo impressed with their performance at this year's Eurovision Song Contest, where they finished eighth with their track 'Lipstick'.
A source said: "Whatever your thoughts are on Jedward's music, you can't argue that the lads are great entertainment."
