Geordie Shore's Sophie Kasaei has finally addressed *those* rumours she could be heading to Australia for I'm A Celebrity, and while she didn't confirm or deny them, she did admit she would love to do the show.

Speaking exclusively to Reveal, Sophie told us she would definitely be up for a stint in the jungle. She said: "Well... yeah. If I did Big Brother then I wouldn't be able to do I'm A Celebrity, so I thought, wait and see if I ever go on I'm A Celebrity rather than Big Brother."

"Who knows?" She added. "Fingers crossed, but I'd love to do any reality TV shows."

When asked if she think she'd fare well in the jungle, Sophie admitted she doesn't think camp life is for her. She said: "I think I would be f**king sh*t if I'm honest. I wretch at anything. I'd be so crap, but I'd just have to do it."

Although, taking inspiration from her former Geordie Shore co-star Vicky Pattison, Sophie did add: "If Vicky can do it, then I can."

Vicky starred on I'm A Celebrity last year, and ended up winning the series - beating Ferne McCann and George Shelley to be crowned Queen of the jungle. She is now headed back over to Australia this year, as Vicky will be fronting I'm A Celeb's new spinoff show I'm A Celebrity: Extra Camp on ITV 2 with Joe Swash, Stacey Solomon and comedian Chris Ramsey.

As for Sophie, she is currently starring on Geordie Shore's new series on MTV.

Sophie originally joined the cast back when Geordie Shore first started in 2011, but was axed after seven series for alleged 'offensive behaviour'. Fans have since seen her return for the Big Birthday Battle series and now she is back this time round to replace Charlotte Crosby.

Charlotte quit Geordie Shore back in June.

Rumours Sophie could be joining the I'm A Celebrity lineup first surfaced back in May, earlier this year.

Sophie had been tagged in a tweet posted by an unofficial Twitter account dedicated to the ITV reality show. It had said: "NEWS: Geordie Shore's @SophieKasaei_ is amongst the rumoured to be entering the jungle this year... #ImACeleb."

But it was Sophie's response that had everyone talking. She didn't exactly deny the rumours and instead posted a slew of emojis with their tongues sticking out and said: "Shhhhhhhhhh."

Others rumoured to make an appearance in the jungle this series are Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt, US swimmer Ryan Lochte and McFly star Tom Fletcher.

Spencer Matthews is also rumoured to return, after revealing he has "discussed" a comeback with I'm A Celeb bosses.
