The rumours continue over who will be chosen to go into the jungle.

Well the date for the new season of I’m a Celebrity 2013 draws ever closer, and we for one, can’t wait until it starts. With its brilliant format of celebrity reality TV crossed with terrifying and disgusting challenges, tears, tantrums and of course not forgetting Britain’s celebrated presenting duo Ant and Dec, what’s not to love?

So as every year the nearer the air date the more intense the rumours become over which lucky celebrities will be dumped in the jungle this year. If you’ve got your hunches, why not make it interesting and place a bet on it?

The new hot favourite, and the second person whose name has been mentioned from the Apprentice is former Apprentice winner Stella English. Stella sparked headlines recently when she filed a lawsuit against Apprentice creator and millionaire businessman Alan Sugar after she was fired from her position in his company. English claimed she was unlawfully dismissed having been unfairly treated in the role, a claim which Sugar strongly denied. Having lost her case English then had further troubles when Sugar turned the situation on its head and sued her for the time and money she had wasted taking him to court. Luckily for now ‘penniless’ English, Sugar was not successful. It has been reported that she would love to get a chance to have her revenge by spilling the beans on what Alan Sugar was like as a boss and what it was like to work in his company. If you fancy a punt on English Ladbrooks are offering odds of 4/5 that she will appear.

Another big name set to join the jungle crew is none other then TOWIE’s very own Lucy Mecklenburgh. TOWIE stars are commonly known for their dramatic exists from the show in order to find fame and fortune elsewhere, but more often then not end up doing a stint of shows such as I;m a Celebrity or Strictly and then are never to be seen or heard of again. Still it would make excellent viewing to see notoriously girly Lucy attempt to live a life without heels and makeup. Apparenly she has been offered a five figure sum, so will she be able to resist. If she does go in pretty Lucy will act as the token bikini girl which seems to be an essential part of the jungle celebrity make up. However will she be able to handle the bush tucker trial? We sincerely doubt it. Lucy is not the only name from the TOWIE series that is flying about the rumour mill, Joey Essex and James ‘Arg’ Argent have also been speculated to appear. Why not get the whole cast in, it could make for a very interesting show, though since doing well in the trials is imperative to winning meals we wonder whether they would all waste away!

A man who is sadly not going to grace our screens in this years show is the lovely Tom Daley. Tom set the hearts of the British public alight as he won us gold in the 2013 olympic games. Despite saying he would be very happy to go into the jungle his other commitments have made it impossible for him to join. Maybe next year eh Tom?

Well the mystery will be solved soon enough –the series starts in a mere matter of weeks so let’s wait and see!
