Hugo Taylor has signed up for 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The former 'Made In Chelsea' hunk has postponed his move to America in order to conquer his fears in the Australian Outback after being offered a lucrative deal by the ITV1 reality show.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Hugo is good looking and sexy - just what we want to help pull in female viewers. And, of course, if he chooses to reveal secrets about all of his posh mates then so much the better."
TV bosses are hoping Hugo will dish the dirt on his famous friends, including his regular party pal Pippa Middleton and his former girlfriend Millie Mackintosh, who is now dating rapper Professor Green.
The lanky lothario - who is currently loved up with model Natalie Joel - quit E4's 'Made In Chelsea' in April, claiming he was disillusioned with reality TV and wanted to pursue an acting career in America.
Hugo recently hinted at his change of plans, saying: "I was going to go to LA in September but I'm opening a private members' club so January is more realistic."
The PR professional is hoping to prove his credibility in the jungle after speaking out about his desire to do something he can be "proud of" in the past.
Hugo explained: "I'm 26 - the show works better with people under 24. It becomes harder to do these shows as you get older. I started thinking I need to do something credible that I'm proud of."
He joins a motley crew of co-stars including 'Coronation Street' actress Helen Flanagan, 'Birds Of A Feather' star Linda Robson and pop icon Grace Jones in the new series, which kicks off on November 11.
