Having revealed ambitions to get into acting, it looks like George could be splitting his time between the stage and screen.

A source told the Daily Star: "As soon as producers heard that George wanted an acting career they got in touch. They are willing to work around George's schedule so it could either be a cameo or full time role."

George came in second place on the last series of I'm A Celeb, losing out to winner Vicky Pattison after spending three weeks in the jungle.

He rose to fame in 2012 after starring on The X Factor, where he joined already-formed boyband Union J as a late addition to the group.
