According to the Daily Star, Rachel has been meeting with ITV bosses since last month, with producers considering her for the upcoming series starting in November.

A source told the newspaper: "Because of her past as a beauty queen and athlete, the producers are really vying for her to be a cross between Amy Willerton and Linford Christie. They think she can be a real contender to become the first black woman to be crowned Queen of the Jungle."

Rachel is said to be "keen" to sign up for the show and is trying to "conquer her fear of flying".

Rachel has a controversial past having been convicted for drink driving in 2010 and banned from driving for a year. She is the niece of sprinter and former jungle star Linford Christie, and she also has a son with David McIntosh.
