George as the new and improved Troy Bolton? We could totally see that happening!
The Disney Channel announced the exciting news on their official Twitter page yesterday, telling fans that they are now casting for High School Musical 4.
Their tweet read: "Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat! The casting search for #HighSchoolMusical4 starts today! #HSM #HighSchoolMusical."
Judging by their tweet and the announcement given by Disney Channel's Worldwide President, Gary Marsh, about the fourth film, it sounds like none of the original cast will be returning. Sob.
That means no Zac Efron, no Ashley Tisdale and no Vanessa Hudgens (even if they did reunite recently!)... Shame! We'd love to have seen what happened to Troy and Gabriella eight years on!
Gary said: "High School Musical is part of Disney Channel's DNA. It embodies all that we stand for. As a way of continuing to embrace that heritage, we're excited to announce the start of something new. We launch a search for a new class of East High Wildcats to star in a fourth instalment of the High School Musical franchise.'
Anyone else still super excited by this, though? We are, especially as it seems like a familiar face may be trying his luck at auditions.
It sounds like I'm A Celebrity's George, like us, is a huge fan of High School Musical and wants in on its new chapter.
He tweeted: "Casting for #HighSchoolMusical4 begins @DisneyChannel..."
Dave Berry (who George presents with on Capital FM's breakfast show) then teased George is debating whether to audition, by replying: "I will back your mission to tick this life box #HighSchoolShelley."
Naturally, that got George's friends super excited and many have encouraged the 22-year-old to give it a whirl...

Sounds like he'd be a hit!
