Gemma Merna has reportedly signed up to star in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' when it begins shooting in Australia next month
'Hollyoaks' actress Gemma Merna is reportedly heading to the 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' jungle.
The blonde beauty - whose character Carmel McQueen is set to be killed off in the Channel 4 soap later this year - will head to Australia at the beginning of next month to take part in the reality series, according to the Daily Mirror newspaper.
The 30-year-old star is a bikini calendar favourite and will no doubt please fans by stripping down to her swimming costume for a wash in the creek if she does sign up for the challenge - that would see her tasked with eating insects and animal parts as well as performing death-defying stunts.
Speaking about the possibility of going into the jungle last year, Gemma said: "I don't know if I could cope with all the creepy crawlies on I'm A Celebrity!
"I'd be away from my family for so long. Your whole life would be consumed while you were there and I don't think I could cope with that. If I don't eat, I get moody; If I get tired, I get moody and I cry - I'm a typical girl!"
However, there won't be any romance on the cards for Gemma if she works up the courage to take part, as she tied the knot with husband Ian Milton in 2012.
Meanwhile The Wanted's Max George is also said to be in negotiations to join the line-up of the Ant & Dec hosted ITV show, while Vicky Pattison's departure from 'Geordie Shore' was rumoured to have been influenced by her desire to travel to the jungle.
