Former 'EastEnders' star Ricky Groves is being lined-up for the new series of 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!"

Ricky Groves is set to join the cast of 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!"

The 'EastEnders' actor - who is played Garry Hobbs BBC One soap - is the latest star rumoured to be heading to the Australian jungle in November to take part in the twelfth series of the reality show.

Ricky left Albert Square in 2009 after nine years on the soap and has since starred in a number of reality shows.

He most notably participated in the seventh series of 'Strictly Come Dancing', and was voted off in Week 10.

He also appeared on 'The Weakest Link EastEnders Special' and the sixth series of 'All Star Family Fortunes', toured the UK on 'Celebrity Coach Trip' and took part in the 2011 series of 'Celebrity MasterChef'.

Ricky wed his former 'EastEnders' co-star Hannah Waterman in 2006, and she divorced him three years later, claiming their married life had become "utter boredom".

The 'I'm a Celebrity' line-up this year includes former 'Coronation Street' star Helen Flanagan, eccentric singer Grace Jones, darts champion Eric Bristow, 'Birds of a Feather' actress Linda Robson and Lindsay Lohan's infamous mother, Dina.
