Rachel Stevens has revealed bosses of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' have been in contact with her about taking part in the forthcoming series

Rachel Stevens is in talks to compete on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'.

The former S Club 7 singer has let slip that ITV bosses have been in contact with her about taking part in this year's upcoming series of the creepy-crawly show and, although she's terrified of bugs, she'd jump at the chance to take on a "challenge."

Speaking to The Daily Star newspaper, she said: "I love 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'. I am up for it. I'm such a wuss so I'd be the one that gets voted every night because I'm scared of so many things."

However, although she's keen to slip into her jungle gear and head out to the Australian outback later this year, the 39-year-old star may have to make a decision as she's also lined up for 'Celebrity MasterChef' this summer alongside Union J's Jaymi Hensley.

Not much is known about the forthcoming series of 'I'm A Celeb' but it's currently up in the air as the show's host Ant McPartlin checked into rehab last weekend.

Bosses are hopeful that he'll be well enough to return to the programme in November alongside his co-host Dec Donnelly, but they're no doubt stressing as they have offered him 12-months sabbatical leave so that he can recuperate properly away from the TV.

The 41-year-old TV host will reportedly now spend at least two months in the clinic trying beat his drugs and alcohol addiction while his wife Lisa supports him from afar.

A senior executive for ITV said recently: "The feeling among senior executives us that Ant has been very brave to admit this.

"He's got our total backing and he knows he can take as much times as he needs. If there's anything we can do to support him in getting better, then of course he only needs to ask. He's a huge part of the ITV family and that isn't going to change.

"He has many friends here who are right behind him and we hope to see him out of rehab and on the mend as soon as possible."
