England cricketer Matthew Hoggard is set to join 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The fast bowler - nicknamed King of the Swingers - is being lined up to enter the Australian jungle as producers think he will make great TV.
The ITV1 show - which will once again be hosted by Ant and Dec - returns to TV screens next month and other stars being lined for it include Brian Conley, Helen Flanagan, Ainsley Harriott, Grace Jones and Linda Robson.
Last year's show was won by McFly star Dougie Poynter, with former 'TOWIE' hunk Mark Wright finishing as runner-up. Other winners include Kerry Katona, Matt Willis, Phil Tufnell and Stacey Solomon.
Meanwhile, stand-up comic Rob Beckett has been signed up to present the ITV2 jungle spin-off show 'Get Me Out Of Here Now'.
He will replace comedian Russell Kane, who has quit after three years, and will co-host alongside blonde beauty Laura Whitmore.
