Ex On The Beach star Jess Impiazzi has said she'd love to follow in the footsteps of Vicky Pattison and do I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The reality favourite has said former Geordie Shore star Vicky pioneered the way for MTV stars on "controversial" shows to move to more family friendly, mainstream programming.

Jess told Daily Star: "I think Vicky has opened the path for us MTV girls. Before it was difficult to go from a controversial show to a family one on ITV. But her success has hopefully opened the door for us."

She added: "I would just be so happy if I got to go into the jungle. Even when I was a kid I used to watch it and think, 'God, I want to go on that.' It would be my ultimate dream."

Vicky took on the jungle last year and ended up winning! "I didn't expect to win but I'm overwhelmed," she said at the time. "It was everything and more. It was the best experience. I thoroughly enjoyed it and threw myself into the whole experience and loved it."

She then embarked on a successful TV career, landing a regular slot on Loose Women and a panel show, It's Not Me, It's You, alongside Kelly Brook and Eamonn Holmes.

As always, ITV don't reveal the identities of the new jungle celebs until the show kicks off later in the year, but we'll be keeping our fingers crossed that Jess is among them!
