Matthew Wright has signed up for 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'
The "opinionated" TV presenter - who is best known for hosting Channel 5 topical discussion series 'The Wright Stuff' - is expected to be a "live wire" in camp when he stars in the Australian jungle-based series.
A source said: "Matthew will be a live wire around camp. He won't hold his tongue and is likely to put his foot in it quite a lot."
Matthew is being tipped as one of the public's favourites to be voted for the show's gruelling Bushtucker Trials, in which stars face a number of challenges involving creepy crawlies and reptiles as they attempt to win food for everyone at camp.
The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: "He is very opinionated so viewers might target him for Bushtucker Trials."
Several other celebrities are also expected to appear in the reality show - which is hosted by presenter duo Ant and Dec - including 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Joey Essex, former Olympian Sally Gunnell, 'Emmerdale' actress Lucy Pargeter, Coronation Street's Michael Le Vell and former 'Apprentice' winner Stella English.
