Former 'Strictly Come Dancing' star Vincent Simone has signed up for 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The professional dancer - who quit the BBC One ballroom show along with Flavia Cacace this year - will reportedly be swapping his dancing shoes for jungle attire when he joins the reality show's line-up in Australia next month, according to The Sun newspaper.
The Italian hunk - who partnered S Club 7 singer Rachel Stevens, 'EastEnders' actress Natalie Cassidy and 'Tracy Beaker' star Dani Harmer during his time on 'Strictly' - quit the programme in order to focus on his stage show 'Dance 'Til Dawn' with Flavia, but he has now been convinced to join the rival ITV reality series.
Vincent is likely to enter the jungle alongside 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Joey Essex, 'Emmerdale' actress Lucy Pargeter, Coronation Street's Michael Le Vell and former 'The Apprentice' winner Stella English.
However, the show was put in doubt earlier this week when a fire blazed through a neighbouring cane field close to the jungle camp site in Murwillumbah, Australia.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "The fire was the talk of the town. It could have spread really quickly as the weather has been very hot and the land is dry."
