EastEnders legend Shane Richie joined the I’m A Celeb line-up at the last minute this year, after his panto was cancelled.

An insider told The Sun: “ITV have always wanted Shane for the jungle but with panto not happening this year and other work opportunities less likely, he decided this was the time to take the plunge.”

“Going to North Wales is less of a huge commitment than flying halfway across the world, too, so he jumped at the chance.”

“He’s already being talked about by production as an early favourite as he’s such a likeable bloke and known to millions of soap fans.”

Victoria Derbyshire

Victoria Derbyshire “jumped at the chance” to sign up for I’m A Celeb, after her BBC show was axed this year.

A source told The Sun: “Victoria is always game for a challenge so when she was approached for I’m A Celebrity she jumped at the chance.”

“It’s always something she’s wanted to do but because of her family she’s never wanted to fly to Australia and be away from them for so long.

“When the show moved to Wales and the opportunity came up, she didn’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth so said yes straight away.”

Jessica Plummer

Another EastEnders star headed for the I’m A Celeb camp is Jessica Plummer.

The actress is hoping the show will give her a “stepping stone”, after her character Chantelle Atkins was killed off EastEnders in September.

“It’s a great move for both parties as she’s just left the soap and this is a great opportunity for her personality to be shown to millions.”
