Former Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts is being lined up for 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' by ITV bosses
Former Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts is being lined up for 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The dancer is said to have impressed ITV bosses recruiting for the show, who think she will bring some sexiness to the Australian jungle.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Ashley is feisty and fun, but above all sexy. The jungle nonsense won't faze her."
The 12th series of the show will see another clutch of celebrities parachuted into the Australian wilderness and living together in a camp where they will face a series of gruesome challenges, such as eating crocodile's penises and crawling through creepy crawly infested swamps.
Already signed up are former 'Birds of A Feather' star Linda Robson and darts player Eric Bristow.
ITV had also wanted fashion presenters Trinny and Susannah for the show, but they turned down an offer as they are focusing on an international TV show.
Others in the frame for the series include ex-'Coronation Street' star Helen Flanagan, singer Grace Jones, comedian Brian Conley, and Duchess Catherine Middleton's cousin Katrina Darling.
'The Only Way is Essex' star Maria Fowler has also said she would love to appear on the show.
She said: "I'd love to be on 'I'm a Celeb...' It's my absolute aim to be in the jungle. I'd even eat haggis in there. I'd be good in the jungle."
