Vanessa White is the latest celebrity rumoured to be heading into the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' jungle
Vanessa White has reportedly signed up for 'Im A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The former Saturdays singer is the latest star rumoured to be heading into the Australian jungle for the ITV reality show later this year.
The 'All Fired Up' hitmaker would be Down Under at the same time her bandmate Molly King competes on BBC's One's 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The busty brunette called time on their six-year relationship with stylist Gary Salter earlier this year and is looking for a "challenge" after becoming single.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Vanessa is a stunning girl from a massive girl band so she's an exciting first signing for I'm A Celebrity.
The bosses are super keen to have her.
"She's still focussing on her music career but is up for the challenge since being newly single."
It comes after the show's bosses silenced rumours Mike Thalassitis will take part in this year's show.
The 'Love Island' hunk and his fellow reality star pal Johnny Mitchell were recently believed to be in the line-up to star in the upcoming series of the popular programme, which is presented by comedy duo Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
However, a source revealed neither have been recruited because they will add "nothing new" to the forthcoming season.
An insider said: "We accept that some of the stars of 'Love Island' have now become celebrities thanks to the show - but they're not for us.
"Viewers have only just recently seen them for seven weeks in a reality show - they'd add nothing new to our show."
However, it is believed former England rugby union star Ben Cohen is in the mix after he showed how "popular" he is with viewers following his appearance on 'Strictly' in 2013.
A separate insider previously said: "Ben's name was straight on the list for this year. He is popular with viewers, as his 'Strictly' stint showed, and appeals to sports fans. He's also a gay icon so he ticks a lot of boxes.
"It looks like the producers might get their man."
Other stars who have been tipped to fight for the title of king or queen of the jungle include Ryan Thomas, after his brother Adam came in the top three during last year's show, Rebekah Vardy, Craig Charles, and former 'The Only Way is Essex' star Danielle Armstrong.
